Owing to the prevailing uncertainty in society due to the corona virus, the Board of Directors of NCC propose that the Annual General Meeting on April 1 does not resolve on any dividend. However, the intention of the Board of Directors is to, if conditions allow, convene an Extra General Meeting later in the year to decide on a dividend. The Nomination Committee has also decided to propose that the director fees remain unchanged compared to 2019.
NCC is to construct two new healthcare buildings at Mälar Hospital in Eskilstuna and Nyköping Hospital in collaboration with Region Sörmland. The total order value for both projects amounts to more than SEK 2.4 billion.
As previously announced, NCC plans to hold its Annual General Meeting on April 1 at 4:30 pm, at Norra Latin, Drottninggatan 71 B, Stockholm, Sweden. However, NCC will take precautionary measures to reduce the risk of the spread of infection on account of the coronavirus. We are monitoring developments in society carefully and will revise this decision as needed.
The Board of Directors of NCC has previously proposed a dividend of SEK 5 per share divided into two payments, the first of SEK 2.50 per share in April and the second of SEK 2.50 per share in November. Owing to the prevailing uncertainty in society, however, the Board now proposes that the Annual General Meeting only decides on a dividend of SEK 2.50 per share, with April 3, 2020 as the record date. The ambition of the Board of Directors is to, if conditions allow, summon an Extra General Meeting to decide on a second dividend.
