Dividend up 10% year over year
LAUSANNE, Switzerland & NEWARK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep. 8, 2021--
SIX Swiss Exchange Ad hoc announcement pursuant to Art. 53 LR —
Logitech International (SIX: LOGN) (Nasdaq: LOGI) today announced that during its annual general meeting (AGM) the Company’s shareholders approved a dividend of approximately CHF 0.87 per share* — an increase of approximately 10% compared to the Fiscal Year 2020 dividend. All other proposals were also approved.
Wendy Becker, Logitech’s chairperson of the board, said: “This year’s annual general meeting presented an opportunity to reflect on an unprecedented Fiscal Year 2021 for Logitech. While the impact of the pandemic on demand for our products and services might seem remarkable, more impressive was the strength and consistency of our performance. Our eighth straight year of growth resulted in another solid year of shareholder returns and demonstrated that our strategy is working, our capabilities are robust and growing, and we’re executing against our long-term growth trends. I look forward to another strong year for Logitech.”
Logitech expects the payment date for the dividend to be September 22, 2021 and the record date for the dividend to be September 21, 2021. The shares are expected to be traded ex-dividend on the SIX Swiss Exchange and the Nasdaq Global Select Market starting on September 20, 2021.
