Instead, it is proposed that the general meeting grants an authorization to the board to resolve dividends on the basis of the annual account for 2019.
Kitron has a solid financial platform. As stated in the company’s financial update on 18 March, there is no major disruption to the company’s business, and customer demand is so far not materially affected. Rather, the board’s decision is due to limited visibility and in preparedness of expected volatility in the months to come. In this extraordinary and uncharted situation, the board considers it to be in the best interest of the company and its shareholders to await further market developments before deciding on a potential dividend.
Please refer to stock exchange notice dated 27 March 2020 for further details.
Apart from the change in proposed dividend, there are no changes from the preliminary financial figures for 2019 published on 13 February 2020.
