The Board of Directors of Capgemini SE, chaired by Paul Hermelin, convened in Paris to review and adopt the accounts of the Capgemini Group for the year-ended December 31, 2020.
In 2020, Capgemini invested €2,999 million net in external growth transactions. This primarily reflects outflows in 2020 to acquire Altran (see specific section below), less net amounts received on the divestment of Odigo. The 7th employee share ownership plan led to a gross share capital increase of €279 million. In addition, the Group paid €226 million in dividends (equal to €1.35 per share, following a 29% reduction in the initial proposal decided by the Board of Directors as part of solidarity measures) and allocated €519 million to share buybacks.
The Board of Directors has decided to recommend the payment of a dividend of €1.95 per share at the Shareholders’ Meeting on May 20, 2021. The corresponding payout ratio is 35% of net profit (Group share), in line with the Group’s distribution policy.
