Dividend policy

Particular account is taken of the group's capital ratio, including capital adequacy requirements and the group's targets and strategic plans, when setting the annual dividend. The level of the annual cash dividend in the lead up to 2018 will take into account the fact that the banking sector is currently buildingup capital to satisfy new capital requirements. Unless capitalrequirements dictate otherwise, the board's goal will be to ensure that the payout ratio gradually increases in the lead up to 2018. The group's dividend policy calls for around half of the profit after tax to be distributed as a cash dividend.

The parent company's distributable profit in 2016 was NOK 2,032 million, equivalent to NOK 7.95 per share. In line with SpareBank 1 SR-Bank’s dividend policy, various factors have been taken into consideration in determining the dividend, including, in particular, our financial strength and the tier1 capital ratio in light of the new regulatory requirements for banks. The current requirements indicate that the group must have common equity tier 1 capital of 15% by the end of 2017.
