Shareholder policy

Schibsted is a listed company that must give competitive returns based on a sound financial situation. Schibsted’s Board of Directors considers it crucial that shares in the company are perceived as an attractive investment option.

One of the objectives of Schibsted's Board is to promote shareholder returns by means of long-term growth in share prices and dividends. The Board will work to ensure that the company’s shares achieve a price that best reflects the long-term earning capacity of the company.

Schibsted is founded on strong positions in the Scandinavian media market, particularly in the newspaper industry. Earnings and cash flows from these activities are characterized by economic fluctuations, but strong brands indicate a long-term and stable position. In periods of recession, interesting opportunities can present themselves for a company that has succeeded in maintaining its capital strength.
