Analyst Note

| Tancrede Fulop, CFA |

The company confirmed its 2021-23 dividends but unexpectedly set a flattish 2024 dividend versus 2023 to have more leeway to invest. In any case, the current dividend yield of 5.5% is attractive and well above the sector average of 4.2%, reflecting the undervaluation of the shares.
