Fluxys Belgium's net profits totalled €47.6 million, up from €44.7 million in 2017. This increase on the previous financial year is due to the same reasons as the changes in the consolidated results, namely the rise in interest rates for linear bonds (OLOs), which affects the regulated rate of return, efficiency gains, dividend income, and lower profits from non-regulated activities.
Since 2010, barring unforeseen events, Fluxys Belgium has striven towards distributing 100% of its annual net profits plus the share of reserves freed up as and when the revaluation surplus is depreciated.
At its General Meeting on 14 May 2019, Fluxys Belgium will propose paying out a gross dividend of €1.26 per share by releasing €9.9 million from unavailable reserves.
Taking into account a profit of €43.3 million carried over from the previous financial year and a withdrawal of €50.6 million from the reserves, the Board of Directors will propose to the General Meeting that the profits be allocated as follows:
- €88.5 million as a dividend payout, and
- €53.0 million as profit to be carried forward.
If that profit allocation proposal is adopted, the total gross dividend for the 2018 financial year will total €1.26 per share. This amount will be payable from 23 May 2019 onwards.
