Dividend policy

The DIA Group has defined a dividend distribution policy consisting of the distribution to its shareholders of between 40% and 50% of underlying net profit.

Since Distribuidora Internacional de Alimentación S.A. was listed on the stock market on 5 July 2011, it has distributed five sole ordinary dividends charged against preceding years. The cumulated gross amount of these dividends was EUR0.78 per share, at the top of the range of the dividend policy communicated by the Company.

At the AGM, the Board of Directors will propose a dividend payout of EUR0.21 per share, 5.0% higher than the EUR0.20 per share paid on 14 July 2016. This amount represents a 49.8% payout ratio over underlying net profit and will imply the distribution of a maximum amount of EUR128.4m in dividends to shareholders.

This 2016 dividend means that DIA’s total shareholder remuneration since its 2011 listing has now reached EUR935m, of which EUR623m in dividends and EUR312m in share buyback programs that were finally amortised.

Management of credit rating

Credit rating agencies Standard and Poor’s (S&P) and Moody’s attributed to DIA a long-term rating of BBB- with stable outlook and Baa3 with positive outlook respectively.
