Proposal regarding dividends
On 29 April 2021, the Annual General Meeting of Nordnet AB (publ) resolved on dividends amounting to SEK 1,51 per share, and that the remaining net result would be carried forward.
The Board now proposes that the Extraordinary General Meeting resolves on dividends amounting to SEK 1,77 per share, which, together with the dividends resolved upon by the Annual General Meeting, equals 70 percent of the net result of year 2020.
As of 31 December 2020, the company’s unrestricted equity amounted to SEK 2 368 771 000. In accordance with the Annual General Meeting’s decision, SEK 377 500 000 has been paid out as dividends. No other value transfers have been carried out since 31 December 2020. Hence, the amount available for distribution according to Chapter 17, Section 3 first Paragraph of the Companies’ Act (2005:551) amounts to SEK 1 991 271 000.
The Board proposes Thursday 16 December 2021 as record day. If the meeting resolves in accordance with this proposal, the dividend is expected to be distributed by Euroclear Sweden AB on 21 December 2021.
