Dividend Policy

The Supervisory Board of SberBank makes a recommendation to the General Shareholders' Meeting on the payment and amount of dividends. Dividends are calculated based on net profit under IFRS (since 2012).

In 2020, SberBank has adopted the dividend policy for the next 3 years. The dividend payout ratio is set at 50% of the Group's net profit under IFRS adjusted for interest payments less the tax effect on equity instruments other than shares accounted for in equity, provided that certain mandatory conditions are met.

Under the Dividend Policy, the key conditions are to maintain the Group’s CET-1 adequacy under IFRS at a level of at least 12.5% and to comply with the mandatory capital adequacy ratios set by the Bank of Russia, taking into account the risk appetite approved by the Supervisory Board of SberBank.

When deciding on the amount of dividends, the terms and conditions must also be considered and taken into account as set out in para. 2.2. of the Regulation on the Dividend Policy of SberBank.
