Significant event to be reported:

Executive Board’s proposal regarding special dividends distribution  


In accordance with the legal and statutory provisions, it is under the Executive Board’s duty to make recommendations to the shareholders regarding the distribution of profits.

As announced in our 2030 Strategy, the Dividend Guidance of the company states the possibility of special dividends to be distributed, provided that the company’s investment plans are funded.

Given the company’s financial strength in terms of net cash position and profitability, the Executive Board proposes the payment of a special dividend in gross value of RON 0.0450 per share, which leads to a total value of special dividends of RON 2,549 mn.

The above-mentioned special dividend proposal will lead to a total dividend/share distributed this year of RON 0.0791 (including the RON 0.0341 base dividend approved by the ordinary meeting of shareholders on April 27) and translates into a total dividend yield of 15.9%[1].

This special dividend proposal will be submitted for approval of the Supervisory Board on June 21, 2022 and subsequently to the Ordinary General Meeting of Shareholders.

Details regarding the proposed Record Date, which serves to the identification of the shareholders who are to benefit from dividends, the proposed Ex-Date and Payment Date will be announced via the convening notice of the Ordinary General Meeting of Shareholders for the approval of special dividends, which is estimated to be disclosed on June 21, 2022.
