Dividend on preference shares
Having regard to the current economic situation in Russia and the uncertain effect this may have during the year on Ferronordic Machines’ cash position and working capital requirements, the board is of the opinion that it would not be prudent to make a resolution already at the AGM on 19 May 2015 to pay dividends on the company’s preference shares when the record dates for the dividend payments do not occur until October 2015 and April 2016. The board therefore proposes that, for the time being, no dividends be paid on the preference shares. If the Board later comes to the conclusion that a payment of dividends on the preference shares will be possible, the board will convene an extraordinary general meeting in the beginning of October 2015 and/or April 2016 where a resolution can be made to pay dividends on the preference shares.
The outstanding dividend payment of SEK 50 per preference share, approved by the AGM on 20 May 2014 and with record date on 24 April 2015, will be paid as scheduled.
