Ercros has reduced its share capital by 20%

Ercros has been buying back its own shares to withdraw them from the market through capital reductions, as a way of remunerating its shareholders. Since 2016, the company has redeemed 22.7 million treasury shares, which represents 20% of the initial share capital.

According to Ercros' shareholder remuneration policy, the purchase of shares for redemption is the preferred means of shareholder remuneration in the company and is channelled through successive programmes.

The board of directors on 04-25-2024 has proposed allocating 8.8 million euros to the dividend payment, 32.7% of the 2023 profit.

With a charge to 2023, there was no purchase of treasury shares because the board of directors, within the framework of the Bondalti takeover bid, proposed to the shareholders' meeting to allocate the entire amount of the remuneration to the shareholder in the payment of the dividend.

In 2020, due to the negative impact of covid-19 on Ercros' business, one of the conditions set out in the shareholder remuneration policy was not met, which is why it was not possible to distribute a dividend or buy back treasury shares to be amortised against the profit for the year.
