Paris, 9 April 2020 – Against a background of very significant uncertainty caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, Altamir's Supervisory Board has decided, based on the Management Company's recommendation, to amend the dividend proposed to the holders of ordinary shares.
The dividend would be reduced from €0.83 to €0.66 per share (more than 2% of NAV as of 31 December 2019), an amount equal to that paid in 2019.
This dividend will be proposed to shareholders at their General Meeting of 28 April 2020 and would be paid on 28 May 2020 (ex-dividend date: 26 May 2020), representing a total of €24m.
The Management Company has also decided to postpone sine die the dividend payable to the general partner and the holders of Class B shares, i.e. carried interest. As a result, the total amount of dividends disbursed in 2020 would be €24m, vs. the initially proposed allocation of €40.5m indicated in the Universal Registration Document.
