Over the past 13 years, Lagardère has maintained an attractive, stable dividend payout policy of €1.30 per share.
Due to the crisis related to the Covid-19 pandemic, no dividend distributions were made in 2021 for the 2020 results, and a dividend of €0.50 per share has been paid for FY 2021 in 2022.
The excellent 2022 operating performance, combined with efforts to control costs at the business and corporate levels, have made it possible to return to the distribution level prior to the health crisis, i.e. €1.30 per share.
