The Board of Directors of Nilörngruppen has decided to withdraw the previously communicated proposal to the Annual General Meeting for a dividend of SEK 2.50/share (MSEK 28.5). The decision has been made in light of the prevailing very uncertain world environment, because of the outbreak of COVID-19 and its effects on the outside world and markets, and the risk of impact on Nilörngruppen’s operations and earnings.
The Board of Directors has also decided to reschedule publication of the quarterly report (Q1) and will publish it on Tuesday 7 April at 8:00 a.m. Rescheduling the report will allow management to prioritize business-critical activities, while at the same time providing current financial information to the shareholders.
The Annual General Meeting is expected to be held as previously announce on 14 May at 5:00 p.m. at Nilörngruppen’s head office in Borås. No food will be served this year due to COVID-19 and if attendance exceeds ten shareholders the meeting will be held outdoors (subject to any changes in authority decisions).
The Annual Report will be available on the Company’s website no later than three weeks before the meeting.
