The Board of Directors (the “Board”) aim to distribute dividends to shareholders for financial periods the Company generates sufficient net profits and has available excess cash.
Future dividends payments will depend on the underlying Company financial performance and market development, as well as expectations about the future. In evaluating dividend distributions, the Board will take into consideration the Company’s forecasted liquidity, investment plans, financing requirements and level of financial flexibility that the Board believes is appropriate for the Company.
