Imerys’ dividend distribution policy depends on the net income generated by the Company during the financial year in question.
The Board of Directors will propose the payment of a €1.75 dividend per share to the Shareholders’ General Meeting of May 4, 2016. This corresponds to a + 6.1% increase compared with the dividend paid in 2015, i.e. a total distributed amount estimated at €139 million, which represents 40.6% of net income from current operations. This proposal is in line with Imerys’ historical payout ratio. The dividend should be paid out from May 12, 2016.
