Dividend policy

On June 7, 2016, Outotec updated its long-term financial targets and decided to omit the dividend target.

The amount of future dividends, if any, will be subject to Outotec’s future earnings, financial, condition, cash flows, and working capital requirements. In addition, investments in either organic growth or acquisitions as part of Outotec’s growth strategy may impact the level of future dividends. Although the Board of Directors has no reason to believe that dividend payments under this policy will not generally be made, there can be no assurance that any annual dividend will actually be paid, nor can there be any assurance as to the amount to be paid in any given year.
