The Board of Directors has proposed a dividend policy that entails maintaining a stable dividend of at least NOK 2.50 per share.
The Group’s goal is to remain an “investment grade” company. Its target is therefore to ensure that its net interest-bearing liabilities/EBITDA ratio does not exceed 2.5-3.0 over time.
In the markets in which Orkla has a presence, growth is expected to remain moderate in the years ahead, with some variation from market to market.
