Taking into consideration the equity ratio requirement and the dividend policy, the target for the return on capital employed is that it shall exceed 15 percent over a business cycle.
The Group’s operations are sensitive to the state of the economy. The objective is a long term equity ratio of approximately 50 percent and a long term net debt/equity ratio of 30 percent.
Dividends shall be adapted to the average level of earnings over a business cycle and, in the long term, constitute approximately 50 percent of profit after tax. However, the net debt/equity ratio must be taken into account. It shall also be possible to use dividends to adapt the capital structure.
The dividend for 2011 was SEK 2.00 (2.00) per share.
