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.

On 9 May 2018 the dividend of Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. for the financial year 2017 has been determined at EUR 1.00 per ordinary share. This dividend shall be distributed in the form of ordinary shares, unless a shareholder opts to receive the dividend payment in the form of cash. The dividend in the form of shares will be charged to the tax-exempted share premium reserve or to the other reserves. 

The information document dated 9 May describes the complete dividend arrangements.

The option period will commence on 15 May 2018 and end on 28 May 2018. The dividend will be payable from 5 June 2018 onwards.
