Dividend policy

Swisscom pursues a return policy with a stable dividend. At the forthcoming Annual General Meeting on 31 March 2021, the Board of Directors will propose an unchanged ordinary dividend of CHF 22 per share for the 2020 financial year. This is equivalent to a total dividend payout of CHF 1,140 million.

Since going public in 1998, Swisscom has distributed a total of CHF 34 bil­lion to its shareholders: CHF 22 bil­lion in dividend payments and CHF 12 bil­lion in capital reductions and share buybacks. Swisscom has paid out a total of CHF 433 per share since the initial public offering. Together with the overall increase in share price of CHF 137 per share, this amounts to an average annual total return of 5.0%.
