Trondheim, 7 April 2020: The board of directors of NORBIT changes its proposal for dividend from NOK 0.60 per share announced on 14 February 2020 to NOK 0.30 per share. In addition, the board proposes that it is given an authorisation from the general meeting to resolve additional distributions of dividends up to NOK 0.30 per share based on the annual accounts for the financial year 2019 if the board considers this to be appropriate at a later time.
NORBIT has a strong financial position and its diversified product offering, targeting different industries, geographies and customers, makes the company well positioned to meet this challenging situation. However, as announced on 27 March 2020, the corona pandemic has resulted in increased uncertainty. Since the duration and magnitude of the global consequences from the corona virus still are uncertain, the board wished to be precautious to maintain the company’s financial flexibility.
NORBIT’s annual general meeting is scheduled to be held on 4 May 2020.
