Dividend policy

Regular and variable dividend
Sligro Food Group seeks to pay a regular dividend of approximately 60% of the profit after tax, excluding extraordinary items. The dividend is paid in cash. Depending on the capital ratio and liquidity position, a proposal may be made to declare an additional variable dividend.

Interim and final dividend
The dividend is paid in two instalments, consisting of an interim dividend in the second half of the year and a final dividend after the Annual General Meeting. In principle, the interim dividend is set at half the regular dividend for the preceding year.
