Board changes the proposal for dividend payment (March 27, 2020)
The Board of Directors of Nokian Tyres proposes that half of the originally proposed dividend of EUR 1.58 per share, i.e. EUR 0.79 per share, to be paid in accordance with the Board’s original proposal (including the proposed record and payment date). In addition, it is proposed that the AGM would authorize the Board of Directors to decide on dividend payment of a maximum of EUR 0.79 per share to be distributed in one or several instalments at a later stage when Nokian Tyres is able to make a more reliable estimate on the impacts of the COVID-19 to the company’s business. The authorization would be valid until the next AGM. The company will publish the possible Board decision on dividend payment separately, and at the same time confirm the pertinent record and payment dates
Nokian Tyres kindly asks that those shareholders, who have given their proxy voting instruction to item 8 in the notice to the AGM published on 5 March 2020, to confirm their voting instruction or to change it by sending a new proxy with voting instructions as detailed in the release of 5 March 2020.
