Jumbo Group on Wednesday said it planned to pay an additional gross dividend of 0.30 euro per share in two tranches in November 26 and December 17, raising the total dividend to 0.77 euro per share, up 25 pct from 2020 (0.615 euro per share). Jumbo Group has already paid an extraordinary dividend of 0.47 euro per share as an advance dividend payment to shareholders.
The company said it continued efforts to balance in an environment burdened by problems in the supply chain, high cost of raw materials, energy and transportation. The announcement said that under the current conditions it looked like 2021 will be another lost year compared with Jumbo Group’s standards for balanced growth both in sales and profitability. The Group also noted that these problems were not expected to improve in early 2022.
