Dividend

Distribution target

The dividend is Nokia’s principal method of distributing earnings to shareholders. Over the long term, Nokia targets to deliver an earnings-based growing dividend by distributing approximately 40% to 70% of non-IFRS diluted EPS, taking into account Nokia’s cash position and expected cash flow generation. The annual distribution would be paid as quarterly dividends.

Distribution of funds for the fiscal year 2019

The Annual General Meeting (AGM) of Nokia Corporation, held on May 27, 2020, resolved that no dividend was paid for the financial year 2019.

Distribution of funds for the fiscal year 2018

Beginning with the distribution for 2018, Nokia has and plans to pay any dividends in quarterly instalments. For the financial year 2018 Nokia distributed a total dividend of EUR 0.10 per share in two quarterly instalments. On October 24, 2019, our Board of Directors resolved to not distribute the third and fourth quarterly instalments of the dividend for the financial year 2018, in order to: a) guarantee Nokia’s ability to increase 5G investments, b) continue investing in growth in strategic focus areas of enterprise and software and c) strengthen Nokia’s cash position. The Board expects to resume dividend distributions after Nokia’s net cash position improves to approximately EUR 2 billion.
