Danone Confirms 2019 Dividend, No Share Buyback Plan

French food group Danone confirmed on Wednesday that it plans to pay out a 2019 dividend of €2.10 per share.

The company also confirmed that no share buyback operations would take place this year.

Danone also said that it plans to make €300 million in financial support available for its trading partners, including farmers and suppliers.

The plans are to be proposed at the group's AGM, which takes place at the end of June.

Chief executive Emmanuel Faber has agreed to take a 30% cut to his fixed pay for the year commencing 1 July, while the company's board are planning to forgo payment entirely for the remainder of the year, with said funds going towards maintaining employee health. [Pic:©Moovstock/123RF.COM]
