The Managing Board and Supervisory Board of HeidelbergCement AG will propose to the Annual General Meeting to distribute a dividend of €2.40 per share for the 2021 financial year. This corresponds to an increase of 9 % compared with the previous year’s dividend of €2.20 per share. Based on the HeidelbergCement share price on 31 December 2021, the dividend yield is 4.0 %. The payout ratio – in relation to the Group’s share of adjusted profit – is 30 %.
The company is thus continuing its progressive dividend policy. The dividend is subject to the approval of the shareholders at the Annual General Meeting, which will be held on 12 May 2022.
