The Group's financial position is strong but, in view of the uncertainty created by COVID-19, the Board has decided to withdraw the previously proposed dividend. In the autumn the Board will assess whether a dividend should be paid and, if so, will convene an extraordinary general meeting.

The Board have also decided that the AGM will be held on 4 June 2020. 

In connection with this, Holmen's nomination committee has announced that it proposes Board fees remain unchanged for 2020, which is a change from the previous proposal.
