Dividends and capital repayment
ASMI aims, as part of its financing policy, to pay a sustainable annual dividend.
In 2012, 2013 and 2014 we paid a dividend of €0.50 per common share.
We intend to propose to the forthcoming 2015 Annual General Meeting of Shareholders ('AGM') to declare a dividend of €0.60 per share.
In addition, ASMI distributed €4.25 per ordinary share to its shareholders in July. This followed on the sale of 12% of the total shares in ASMPT in March 2013.
Share Buyback Program 2014-2015
On October 29, 2014, ASMI announced a share buyback program, to purchase up to an amount of €100 million of its own shares within the 2014-2015 time frame. The repurchase program is part of ASMI's commitment to use excess cash for the benefit of its shareholders. ASMI intends to use part of the shares for commitments under employee share-based compensation schemes. The program does not include the repurchase of ASMI's Nasdaq-listed New York Registry Shares.
The program started on November 24, 2014, and will end on completion of the program but ultimately on November 20, 2015. Up until December 31, 2014, we repurchased in total 953,552 shares for a total amount of €31.9 million.
