Neste's dividend policy, updated in September 2017, is to distribute at least 50% of its comparable net profit as dividend.
2018 annual dividend 2.28 EUR per share will be paid in two instalments:
1. dividend instalment, 1.14 EUR per share was paid on 11 April 2019
As the AGM held on 2 April 2019 approved the share issue without payment (share split), the second instalment will be divided between 1 old and 2 new shares so that EUR 0.38 will be paid for each share.
2. dividend installment, 0.38 EUR per share will be paid on 11 October 2019
