In recent years the Altarea dividend has posted regular growth. Our dividend policy is based on an analysis that takes account of regulatory constraints, related in particular to the SIIC regime, dividends paid historically, and the Group’s financial position and results.
The General Shareholders' Meeting of 24 May 2022 voted a dividend of €9.75/share for the financial year 2021, up 2.6% compared to 2020.
The 2021 dividend wil be paid fully in cash on 31 May 2022 and the ex-dividend date will be set on 27 May 2022.
The General Shareholders' Meeting of 29 June 2021 voted a dividend of €9.50/share, for the financial year 2020, up to 5.6% compared to 2019. Shareholders also offered an option to take part-payment in shares. They were free to choose between:
- full payment in cash;
- 50% in share, and 50% in cash.
The main shareholders of the Group as well as the senior executives of Altarea, together representing nearly 80% of the share capital, had announced their intention to subscribe to this option.
At the end of the option exercise period (7 to 20 July 2021 inclusive), a total of 482,385 shares were subscribed, i.e. a 91.59% subscription rate. Taking into account a rounded par value of €15.28 per share, the nominal amount of the capital increase resulting from the subscription of the new shares totalled €7,370,842.80. The 482,385 shares were created, delivered and admitted to trading on 26 July 2021. The amount of the dividend paid in cash was paid to the shareholders on the same day.
