Dividend policy

In the annual General Meeting of Arcadis N.V., held on Thursday 29 April 2021, the dividend for the financial year 2020 was approved at EUR 0.60 per ordinary share. Arcadis N.V. offers its shareholders the choice to receive the dividend in cash or in shares. The dividend is a 28% increase of the nominal amount as was distributed for financial year 2018 (as communicated via press release on 26 March 2020, the dividend proposal for 2019 was withdrawn). In total, this distribution represents 40% of net income from operations. This dividend distribution is in accordance with the applicable provisions of the articles of association. It is in line with our dividend policy (as dealt with and explained as a separate agenda item at the annual General Meeting in May 2005) which aims for a pay-out of 30-40% of net income from operations. 

Both cash dividend and stock dividend will be made payable to shareholders from Friday 21 May 2021.

With regard to the dividend the payments will be made in accordance with Article 5:3(2) sub d and Article 5:4 sub (e) of the Act on Financial Supervision (Wet op het Financieel Toezicht).
