The Board’s previous assessment of the proposed level for the shareholder dividend of SEK 12 remains. ICA Gruppen has a strong balance sheet and strong financial position. In addition, the company currently does not see any negative consequences of COVID-19 on its operations.
However, due to the extensive and hard-to-oversee consequences caused by the virus outbreak, ICA Gruppen’s board also sees reasons to adjust its proposal and intends to summon an Extraordinary General Meeting later this year to decide on the other half of the dividend.
In connection with this, the Nomination Committee has decided to withdraw its previous proposal for directors’ fees, and its new proposal to the Annual General Meeting is that directors’ fees remain unchanged for 2020.
