Dividend policy

Neste's dividend policy is to distribute at least 50% of its comparable net profit as dividend.

The Annual General Meeting has approved the Board of Directors' proposal that a dividend of EUR 0.80 per share shall be paid on the basis of the approved balance sheet for 2020. The dividend shall be paid in two installments.

The first dividend installment, EUR 0.40 per share, will be paid on 12 April 2021. The second dividend installment, EUR 0.40 per share, will be paid on 12 October 2021. The Board of Directors is authorized to set a new dividend record date and payment date for the second installment of the dividend, in case the rules and regulations on the Finnish book-entry system would be changed, or otherwise so require.
