Key performance indicators
Financial highlights

1 Indicative dividend. As a consequence of the group restructuring, this year the Board is not recommending to shareholders to approve the payment of a dividend at the Annual General Meeting as part of the usual yearly profit allocation process. Instead, the Board envisages approving the payment of such a dividend in the fourth quarter of 2019 under the form of an interim distribution, in accordance with the Belgian Companies Code and Euroclear Holding SA/NV’s Articles of Association.
