We are transforming our business portfolio towards higher value creation. The FY2020 results are a reflection of our focus and delivery on the key priorities set forth on our transformation journey.
In 2020, we have made significant progress in enhancing our profitability, strengthening the balance sheet, and generating cash. Despite the turmoil that Covid-19 has created in our markets, Bekaert has secured the business continuity of customers around the world, the health and safety of people in our facilities worldwide, and we were successful in offsetting the impact of the pandemic on our financial performance.
Based on the strong performance of 2020 and confidence in the set direction, the Board of Directors has decided to propose to the General Meeting of Shareholders of 12 May 2021, a gross dividend of € 1.00, up 65 eurocent from last year and in line with the company’s Dividend Policy.
