New dividend policy in Bure

New dividend policy in Bure A cash dividend, distribution of assets - for example in the form of shares in subsidiaries - and purchase of the company's own outstanding shares will be utilised in combinations to transfer value to Bure's shareholders. This is the tenor of the new transfer policy adopted by Bure's Board of Directors. The annual cash dividend shall amount to at least five per cent of the equity carried forward. The new dividend policy reflects a more modern approach and is more effective because different methods can be used to transfer capital to the shareholders. Bure is at the forefront of this approach through its distribution of Capio and Observer," says Peter Sandberg, President and CEO of Bure. In total, the transfer of value to the shareholders should be very competitive over a period of time, whereby the annual cash dividend shall amount to at least five per cent of the equity carried forward.
