Under the dividend policy adopted by Capio's Board of Directors in 2014, Capio intends to target annual dividends that over time reflect a payout ratio of approximately 30% of the Group's earnings after tax per year, allowing for a meaningful reinvestment in the business. Decisions relating to dividends take into account Capio's future revenue, financial position, capital requirements, business opportunities, and the situation for the Group in general.
For the 2017 financial year, a dividend of SEK 0.95 per share was distributed to shareholders. The dividend was equivalent to approximately 36% of earnings after tax and a dividend yield of approximately 2.2% based on the share price at the end of the year. In the previous financial year a dividend of SEK 0.90 per share was distributed to shareholders (SEK 0.50 in 2015).
