Abstract

In this paper we analyze the results from a survey among all publicly listed Nordic firms on their dividend payout policy. A number of interesting results are found. The results show e.g. that 72 percent of the Nordic companies have a specified dividend policy. Larger and more profitable companies with more concentrated ownership are more likely to have a defined dividend policy in place. The dividend policy is mostly influenced by the considerations of company’s capital structure and future earnings.
