Value distributed to our stakeholders
In 2016, SEA Group generated an economic value of 653.5 million Euro, up 1.7% over the previous year.
About 85% of this value (553 million Euro) was distributed to stakeholders in the form of payments and other forms of transfer (+1.5% compared to the previous year), going from 545.0 to 552.9 million.
The main recipients of this value were the suppliers, who received 187.2 million (196.9 million in the previous year), equal to 33.8% of the total, and the human resources, who received 183 million (33.1% of the total distributed value versus 32.5% of 2015).
The portion of value paid to capital providers was also significant (81.8 million, or 14.8% of the distributed value, against 70.8 million in 2015), in which dividends were dominant (62.8 Million, compared to 50.9 million in 2015) compared to financial charges paid to lenders (around 19 million).
The portion paid to the public administration in the form of taxes and fees was 55.7 million (10.1% of the distributed value). Finally, the portion of distributed value paid to the company and the territory was 0.16% in 2016, corresponding to the sum of the donations made to bodies and associations of the third sector in support of cultural, humanitarian, scientific and sporting projects.
