SalMar’s objective is to provide shareholders with a competitive return on invested capital, given the company’s risk profile. This return shall be acheived through a combination of share price increase and the payment of a dividend by the Group.
The Group plans to pay out its surplus liquidity (liquidity not needed for the Group’s day-to-day operations and future development) as a dividend or a capital reduction with a payout to the shareholders. The Group will also periodically assess whether any available liquidity should be used for new investments or repayment of debt rather than being paid as dividend.
Payment of an annual dividend is planned, though this is conditional upon the approval of the Annual General Meeting. The company will also consider whether to buy back its own shares withing the framework of the authorizations granted to the board of directors by the Annual General Meeting.
