Lonza’s Board of Directors is proposing a dividend increase for shareholders of CHF 0.25 per share to CHF 3.00 per share. The proposal represents a pay-out of 25.8% of 2020 reported net profit. Subject to approval at the upcoming Annual General Meeting (AGM) on 6 May 2021, 50% of the dividend of CHF 3.00 per share will be paid out of the capital contribution reserve and will therefore be free from Swiss withholding tax.
