Boskalis jaarverslagen 2011

Dividend policy and proposal

The main principle of the Boskalis dividend policy is to distribute 40% to 50% of net profit from ordinary operations as dividend, whereby Boskalis aims to achieve a stable development of the dividend over the longer term. The choice of dividend form (in cash and/or entirely or partly in shares) takes into account the company’s desired balance sheet structure as well as the interests of shareholders.

In light of this, Boskalis will propose to the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders on 10 May 2012 that a dividend of EUR 1.24 per share be distributed in the form of ordinary shares, unless the shareholder opts to receive a cash dividend. The dividend will be payable from 6 June 2012.
