Dividend policy

The dividend policy aims to maintain a balance between distributing dividends and increasing the Bank’s capitalization by reinvesting in business development. Therefore, shareholder value should rise over the long term.

The Bank’s dividend policy stipulates that annual dividend payments shall not exceed 10% of net profit earned during the previous financial year. According to the Articles of Association, dividends on preferred shares are equal to 20% of their face value. All dividends are paid in monetary form, net of taxes, within 60 days after the approval of their payment by the General Meeting of Shareholders.

The text of the Provision on Dividend Policy is available on the Bank’s website: http://www.vbank.ru/en
