It is Subsea 7’s objective to give its shareholders a competitive return on their invested capital. The return is to be achieved through a combination of dividend payments, share repurchases and an increase in the value of the Company’s shares over time through disciplined investment in value-adding growth opportunities.
It is the Company's intention to pay a regular dividend of NOK 1.00 per share each year. In addition, after evaluating the Company’s financial position and re-investment opportunities each year, the Board of Directors may decide to recommend that shareholders approve at the AGM a special dividend. Dividends will normally be paid in the month following their approval at the AGM.
