Dividends and dividend policy

The Board of Amadeus IT Holding, S.A., in the meeting held on October 18, 2012, reviewed the dividend policy of the Company, increasing the proposed pay-out ratio to between 40% and 50% of the consolidated profit (excluding extraordinary items), compared to the previous policy, fixed in 2010, which consisted of a pay-out ratio of between 30% and 40%. The new dividend policy, applicable to the period of 2012 and onwards, also establishes the payment of an interim dividend related to the results of each financial period. On December 11, 2014 The Board of Directors of Amadeus IT Holding, S.A has resolved to extend the current dividend policy to the period of 2014.

The amount of future dividends and the dividend policy will depend on a number of factors, including  earnings, financial condition, debt service obligations, cash requirements, prospects or market conditions. The amount of dividends is proposed by our Board of Directors and determined by the shareholders at general shareholders' meetings.
