Neste's dividend policy is to distribute at least 50% of its comparable net profit as dividend.
30 March 2022, the AGM approved the Board of Directors' proposal that a dividend of EUR 0.82 per share, totaling EUR 630 million, will be paid on the basis of the approved balance sheet for 2021. The dividend will be paid in two installments.
The first instalment of dividend, EUR 0.41 per share, was paid on 8 April 2022. The second installment of dividend, EUR 0.41 per share, will be paid on 7 October 2022. 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.
