Timing for dividends declaration
Additionally, the Board determined that the Group expects to declare dividends, if any, in the month of April or thereafter once its subsidiaries have, at the respective shareholder and board meetings, agreed on dividend declarations and set corresponding payment dates. This progression of events is in keeping with the provisions of Credicorp’s Dividend Policy.
It is important to highlight that the company may declare dividends more than once a year within the confines of prudent capital management.
In the past, Credicorp generally declared annual dividends in February. Nonetheless, going forward the main subsidiaries, namely, BCP, Mibanco, Pacífico and Prima, will conduct dividend assessments between March and April and if a decision is made to declare dividends, will set corresponding payment dates. Once the subsidiaries have made the aforementioned decisions, the holding company will proceed to assess capital management needs to declare and pay dividends to its shareholders.
