Long-term Financial Orientation
We are strategic investors in our various businesses. Sustainable profitability combined with a conservative dividend policy allow our companies to grow on a long-term basis. In order to reduce the cluster risk for the Group which had grown significantly both organically and through acquisition, DKSH initiated a public listing in 2012. In this process, the company afforded its own small shareholders a unique exit opportunity in the IPO as well as fulfilling its agreement to provide the acquisition partners with an exit. Diethelm Keller Holding Ltd. thereby also reduced its ownership to below 50 % and returned to being a predominantly family-owned holding company
Our operating units can rely on a high degree of entrepreneurial and financial autonomy in the implementation of their long-term strategies. Each entity is responsible for its individual financial soundness and is allowed to retain sufficient profit to enable a long-term growth strategy.
