State of affairs on 31 December 2019
SUEZ’s share capital is divided among the different shareholders in a balanced manner.
Long-term strategic shareholders for the Group – ENGIE, the leading shareholder, the Catalan banking group La Caixa and the Italian group Caltagirone – owned nearly 42% of the capital as at 31 December 2019, putting the Group in a stronger position to act on an ambitious strategy.
Meanwhile, the individual shareholder share provides SUEZ with stability and support for our long-term strategy, reinforced by the loyalty and trust of our employees.
At the end of every financial year since the company’s stock market listing, the Shareholders’ Meeting has proposed paying a dividend of €0.65 per share. In 2019, in order to contribute to the solidarity measures which are at the heart of the SUEZ mission, the Board of Directors proposed paying a dividend of €0.45 per share, a reduction of around a third compared to financial year 2019.
The ex-dividend date is 18 May 2020, with payment in cash on 20 May 2020.
