Dividend

Dividend policy

Uniper aims to strike a balance between attractive dividends for shareholders, the company's ability to invest, and balance sheet stability.

Uniper's management will communicate statements on the dividend for the 2021 financial year at a later date.

For the 2020 financial year, the Annual General Meeting on May 19, 2021 approved the Board of Management's dividend proposal. A dividend of €501 million or €1.37 per share was distributed. Based on a fixed dividend of around €200 million for the 2016 fiscal year, the target of average annual dividend growth of 25% between 2016 and 2020 was even slightly exceeded.
