Aktia Bank Plc updates dividend policy28.2.2024 16:15:00 CET | Press release
Aktia Bank Plc Stock Exchange Release February 28th 2024 at 5.15 p.m. Aktia Bank Plc updates dividend policy Aktia’s goal is to provide a competitive dividend yield to its shareholders. The amount of dividends to be paid depends on the group's financial performance and its growth and investment needs. In addition, Aktia wants to ensure sufficient capital adequacy also during changing market conditions. Aktia intends to pay out a dividend of approximately 60 per cent of the profit for the reporting period to its shareholders. Aktia’s goal is to achieve profitable growth in all business areas. The capital structure must support both this growth and the ensuring of a good level of capital adequacy. In 2021 and 2022, Aktia paid out 60 per cent of earnings as dividends to shareholders. The Board of Directors proposes to the Annual General Meeting that the payment of dividends for 2023 be EUR 0.70 per share, which corresponds to 60 per cent of the profit for the 2023 reporting period.

Aktia Bank Abp uppdaterar sin utdelningspolitik28.2.2024 16:15:00 CET | Pressemelding
Aktia Bank Abp Börsmeddelande 28.2.2024 kl. 17.15 Aktia Bank Abp uppdaterar sin utdelningspolitik Aktias mål är att erbjuda en konkurrenskraftig dividendavkastning åt sina ägare. Den utbetalda dividendens belopp är beroende av koncernens resultatutveckling samt tillväxt- och investeringsbehov. Därtill vill Aktia säkerställa en tillräcklig kapitaltäckning även i omväxlande marknadsförhållanden. Aktia strävar efter att dela ut cirka 60 procent av räkenskapsperiodens vinst till aktieägarna. Aktia har som sin målsättning att växa lönsamt inom samtliga affärsområden. Kapitalstrukturen bör stöda så väl denna tillväxt som en bibehållen god nivå på kapitaltäckningen. För åren 2021 och 2022 har Aktia delat ut 60 procent av resultatet som dividend till sina aktieägare. För år 2023 föreslår styrelsen åt bolagsstämman en utdelning om 0,70 euro per aktie, vilket motsvarar 60 procent av räkenskapsårets resultat. Tidigare utdelningspolitik: Aktias målsättning är en dividendutbetalning om 60-80 procen

Sanoma Corporation, Press Release, 28 February 2024 at 17:05 EET Sanoma participates in joint claim of European media companies against Google in relation to anticompetitive practices in ad tech Sanoma Media Finland, together with more than 30 European media groups, have initiated a damages claim against Google in relation to its anticompetitive practices in “ad tech”, the various technologies behind online advertising. According to the claim by the media companies, Google has abused its dominant position in ad tech by favouring its own tools over those of its rivals. With healthy competition on the market, the media companies would have paid lower fees for ad tech services and received significantly higher revenues from advertising. Google has faced similar legal proceedings in the UK and U.S. In 2021, the French competition authority found comparable practices by Google as an abuse of its dominant market position. Google was issued a penalty of EUR 220 million. The claim was filed in
