Dividend History

Dividend Policy 2015–2017

In January 2015 Tele2 adopted a progressive dividend policy which aims to deliver 10 percent growth per annum in the following three year period. Authorization to pay extraordinary dividends will be sought when the company has excess capital.

Pursuant to the approval received at the 2015 AGM, Tele2 has the authorization to repurchase up to 10 percent of its share capital.
