Olivier de la Clergerie, LDLC Group CEO, said: “ Over the past few years, our Group has made significant investments to improve its profitability and support its growth. We are now able to see the results of these efforts with increased profitability. It is important for us to share this created value with all our stakeholders, including our shareholders. We have therefore proposed to the Shareholders' Meeting the distribution of a dividend of €2.00 per share for the 2021-2022 fiscal year, representing a total yield of 8.7% compared to the closing share price on the day before the Meeting.
In addition, we aimed to reinforce our policy of return to our shareholders by favoring a balanced and attractive approach while encouraging long-term commitment. The LDLC Group is therefore pleased that the General Meeting has approved the introduction of a 10% bonus dividend for the most loyal shareholders, which will come into effect from the 2023-2024 fiscal year."
