DUBAI — Saudi Aramco still plans to pay $75 billion in dividends this year, the chief executive of the world’s top oil exporting company said on Sunday.
“We intend to pay the $75 billion, subject to board approval and market conditions,” Aramco CEO Amin Nasser told reporters on a conference call after announcing the company’s quarterly results.
Payouts to minority shareholders as pledged are protected for five years, he added.
