Jetpak Board withdraws its dividend proposal due to the impact of the coronavirus outbreak

Jetpak Board withdraws its dividend proposal due to the impact of the coronavirus outbreak
As a consequence of the current uncertainty due to the global outbreak of the new coronavirus (Covid-19), the Board of Directors of Jetpak Top Holding AB (publ.) has resolved to withdraw its dividend proposal before the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting 2020.

As a result of the global outbreak of the new coronavirus (Covid-19), and an increasing number of countries closing their borders, negative effects on the world economy are expected. The spread of Covid-19 impacts Jetpak’s markets. Jetpak therefore estimates that the demand for its services during 2020 will be negatively affected due to the uncertain situation and expected challenging market conditions.

Currently it is not possible to quantify the financial effects thereof, given the exceptional and uncertain market conditions. It is the Board’s assessment that the previously communicated dividend proposal (SEK 4 per share) under the prevailing circumstances is no longer justifiable as the company and the group may need increased financial preparedness going forward. The Board has therefore decided to withdraw its dividend proposal. If market conditions stabilize during the year and that the company’s financial position allows, the Board may later in the year convene an extraordinary shareholders´ meeting in order to decide on a dividend.
