Balder’s goal is to generate the best long-term total yield for its shareholders. The assessment is still that this is best achieved by reinvesting the profits in the business in order to create further growth.
For this reason, the dividend will remain low or will not be declared at all in the next few years. Balder will instead continue to grow by investing in existing properties, new construction and acquisition of new properties.
