Dividend and total return
Axfood’s dividend policy sets the goal that the shareholder dividend shall be at least 50% of profit after tax. The dividend will be paid out on two occasions.
The 2020 Annual General Meeting resolved in favour of a dividend of SEK 7.25 per share, corresponding to 92% of the 2019 profit after tax. The dividend amount is divided into two payments, of SEK 3.75 and SEK 3.50, respectively. The first dividend payment was made on 25 March 2020. The record date to receive the second dividend payment is Friday, 18 September 2020. The second dividend is expected to be paid out on Wednesday, 23 September 2020.
SEK 7.00 per share was paid out as an ordinary dividend in 2019, corresponding to 94% of the 2018 profit after tax.
