The AGM resolved to pay a cash dividend of SEK 1.75 per share, equivalent to SEK 189M in total. Record day is 26 April, 2002 which means that the dividend is expected to be remitted on 2 May 2002. The AGM also authorised the Board of Directors to agree a buy-back of shares of up to 10 per cent of the number of outstanding Bure shares. In accordance with the dividend policy adopted by Board of Directors during the autumn, cash dividend, distribution of shares in companies and the acquisition of its own outstanding shares, shall be utilised in different combinations to transfer values to Bure's shareholders. The annual cash dividend shall amount to at least five per cent of the equity carried forward. The dividend that has now been agreed amounts to 5.5 per cent of the equity carried forward.
