The dividend policy of JDE Peet’s intends to preserve the independence of the company, maintain a healthy financial structure and to retain sufficient earnings in order to grow the business both organically and through acquisitions. The ability and intention of the company to declare and pay dividends in the future will mainly depend on its financial position, results of operations, capital requirements, investment prospects, the existence of distributable reserves and available liquidity and such other factors as the Board may deem relevant; and are subject to factors that are beyond the company's control. Subject to the aforementioned limitations, the company intends to provide a stable and increasing dividend per share, while the pace will be determined by the company’s capital allocation priorities.
JDE Peet's will pay a dividend of EUR 0.70 per share in cash related to FY 20. The dividend will be paid in two instalments of EUR 0.35 each. The first payment has been made on Friday 16 July 2021, with the ex-dividend date on Monday 12 July 2021 and the record date on Tuesday 13 July 2021. The second payment date will be on Friday 28 January 2022, with the ex-dividend date on Monday 24 January 2022 and the record date on Tuesday 25 January 2022.
Dividend in cash is, in principle, subject to 15% Dutch dividend withholding tax, which will be deducted from the dividend in cash paid to shareholders. A shareholder's claim to payments of dividends lapses five years after the day on which the claim became payable. Any dividends that are not collected within this period revert to the company.
