Dividend policy

Dividends are distributed annually. In 2003, the Board of Directors determined that one-third of Group net income attributable to shareholders of Holcim Ltd should be distributed. For the 2014 financial year, the Board is again proposing a payout from the capital contribution reserves corresponding to last year’s amount of CHF 1.30 per registered share. The payout is scheduled for April 17, 2015.
