The main principle underlying the Boskalis dividend policy is to distribute 40% to 50% of the net profit from ordinary operations as dividend. In doing so, Boskalis aims to achieve a stable long-term development of the dividend to its shareholders. The choice of dividend form (cash or shares or a combination of the two) takes into account the company’s desired balance sheet structure and the interests and wishes of the shareholders.

In view of the global developments related to the COVID-19 (corona) virus, Boskalis announced on 2 April 2020 that numerous measures were taken to focus on cash generation and preservation. In view of the prevailing uncertainties Boskalis decided not to schedule a dividend proposal for the financial year 2019.
