The dividend policy of Zug Estates Holding and the amount of future dividends it decides to pay, if any, will depend on a number of factors, including, but not limited to, its earnings, financial condition, cash requirements, the general business outlook for the Group, legal obligations in connection with the distribution of dividends and other factors. Subject to the factors mentioned, Zug Estates Holding's target payout ratio is up to 50% of net income (without revaluation of investment properties) until the general meeting 2019.
Changes as of general meeting 2020
The anticipated special effects of sales proceeds from the Aglaya promotional project over the coming two years were cause to revise the current dividend strategy of Zug Estates Holding AG. At each general meeting of shareholders as of 2020, the board of directors intends to propose a dividend calculated at an annual growth rate of 10% until such time as the payout ratio reaches a level of two thirds of earnings from operations and as long as no major investments are needed. An additional special dividend will also be proposed at the 2020 and 2021 general meetings of shareholders.
