The Board of Directors of Citycon Oyj has decided to propose to the Annual General Meeting to be held on 22 March 2022 asset distribution as follows.
The Board of Directors proposes that based on the balance sheet to be adopted for the financial period ended on 31 December 2021, no dividend is distributed by a resolution of the Annual General Meeting.

Based on this authorization, the maximum total amount of equity repayment distributed from the invested unrestricted equity fund shall not exceed EUR 0.50 per share.

The authorization is valid until the opening of the next Annual General Meeting.
Unless the Board of Directors decides otherwise for a justified reason, the authorization will be used to distribute 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 equity repayment so that the preliminary record and payment dates will be as stated below. Citycon shall make separate announcements of such Board resolutions.
