Getlink pursues a policy of returning dividends to its shareholders as defined by the Board of Directors. In general, it takes into account the economic context, the Group's investment needs and any other factors deemed relevant.

In 2021, given the impact of the Covid-19 health crisis but confident in its long-term prospects, the Group confirms its commitment to shareholder return and has proposed to resume the distribution of a dividend of €0.05 per share for the 2020 financial year as approved by the General Meeting on 28 April 2021. This dividend represents a total distribution of €27.5M in 2021 and €972M in dividends distributed to shareholders since 2008.
As a reminder, the Board of Directors of Getlink had decided in March 2020, as a precautionary measure due to the Covid-19 health crisis, and in view of a general trend, not to propose at its General Meeting the payment in 2020 of the dividend in respect of the 2019 financial year.

Income tax

The French 2018 Finance Act introduced a mandatory deduction on account which will be levied at a rate of 12.8% on dividends for private individuals who are French tax residents. An exemption is available to households where the reference taxable income is lower than €50,000 (for a single person) or €75,000 (couples subject to joint taxation) for the penultimate year preceding the year in which the income is received, by making a request, accompanied by a sworn statement, to their bank by November 30 of the year prior to the receipt of the income at the latest.
