Dividend policy

Nokian Tyres’ target is to deliver good returns to its shareholders and pay a dividend of at least 50% of its net earnings.

Dividend for the year 2019

The Annual General Meeting 2020 decided that a dividend of EUR 0.79 per share be paid for the financial year 2019. 

  • Record date for dividend: April 6, 2020
  • Payment date: April 17, 2020

The AGM also authorized 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 Board’s authorization will remain valid until the General Meeting of 2021. The company will publish the possible Board decision on dividend payment separately, and at the same time confirm the pertinent record and payment dates.
