Dividend

Citycon's objective is to maintain a strong and competitive dividend payment capability. Citycon's current dividend distribution policy is to pay out more than 50% of the result for the period excluding fair value changes on property.

Dividend for 2019 (payable in 2020)

The Board of Directors of Citycon Oyj has 28 May 2020 resolved to adjust the remaining quarterly instalments of the equity repayment in 2020 to further increase long-term financial stability and to strengthen the credit risk profile of the company. Following the adjustment, the Board of Directors will use a maximum total amount of EUR 0.5375 per share from its total dividend and equity repayment authorization of EUR 0.65 per share from the Annual General Meeting 2020. The Board of Directors will make separate resolutions on each distribution of the equity repayment. Citycon shall make separate announcements of such Board resolutions.

The Board of Directors also decided that the Board’s proposal regarding the company´s dividend and/or equity repayment, which will be made later to the AGM 2021, would be set to maximum total EUR 0.50 per share for the year 2021. This is approximately 23% less than the original authorization of EUR 0.65 per share for 2020.

Citycon also investigates opportunities to offer shareholders an option to convert dividend and equity repayment payment into shares in the future. With these decisions and considerations the Board of Directors wants to signal its commitment to gradual deleveraging and protecting Citycon’s investment grade credit ratings.

Unless the Board of Directors decides otherwise for a justified reason, the authorization will be used to distribute dividend and/or equity repayment four times during the period of validity of the authorization. In this case, the Board of Directors will make separate resolutions on each distribution of the dividend and/or equity repayment so that the preliminary record and payment dates will be as stated below. Citycon shall make separate announcements of such resolutions.
