Dividend

Dividend policy

H &M's financial goal is to enable the company to continue enjoying good growth and to be prepared to exploit future business opportunities. It is essential that the company’s expansion is able to proceed as in the past with continued high degree of financial strength and continued freedom of action. Based on this policy, the board of directors has determined that the dividend should equal around half of the profit after taxes. In addition, the board may propose the distribution of any surplus liquidity.
