The Dividend Policy of Medicalgorithmics S.A. is an element of ensuring a balance between the paid out amount of dividends and the capability for effective investment of the funds earned by the Company. In its Resolution No 2 of 1 June 2017, the Supervisory Board expressed a positive opinion on the Management Board’s recommendation regarding the policy of payment of dividend, as included in the Management Board’s Resolution No 3/05/2017 of 29 May 2017.
The dividend is paid to shareholders once a year after the end of the financial year based on the resolution of the Ordinary General Meeting on allocating the profit to be distributed among shareholders. The shares of Medicalgorithmics S.A. are not the preferred ones in relation to the dividend. This means that the same value of the dividend is paid for each share.
Information on the payment of the Medicalgorithmics S.A. dividend is announced in current reports. Investors who on the dividend record date have the Medicalgorithmics S.A. shares on their accounts are entitled to the dividend.
According to Art. 395 (2) (2) of the Commercial Companies Code, the General Meeting shall be the competent authority to decide on the distribution of profit and dividend payment. The General Meeting adopts a resolution on whether and what part of the profit should be distributed as the dividend. The Ordinary General Meeting is presented by the Management Board a suggestion on how to distribute profit, approved by the Supervisory Board. According to Art. 395 (1) of the Commercial Companies Code, the Ordinary General Meeting should be held within six months after the end of the financial year.
Pursuant to Art. 348 (3) of the Commercial Companies Code, the Ordinary General Meeting of the publicly held corporation sets forth the dividend record date, i.e. the date of determining the right to dividend, and the date of dividend payment. The dividend record date may be the day of adoption of the resolution or a date within the next three months from that day.
In accordance with clause 106 (2) of the Detailed Principles of Operation of the Central Securities Depository of Poland, there must be a period of at least ten days between the dividend record date and the dividend payment date. Pursuant to clause 5 (1) of the Rules and Terms of the Central Securities Depository of Poland, these time limits are calculated considering the business days and excluding Saturdays. A claim for dividend payment is subject to a ten-year limitation period.
The dividend from held Corporation shares is paid to the shareholders on the “dividend payment date”. The dividend payment process is carried out through the depository system of the Central Securities Depository of Poland (KDPW).
The Ordinary General Meeting determines the gross value of the dividend. Shareholders receive a net dividend, i.e. the amount deducted by the tax due on the territory of the Republic of Poland.
