Chocoladefabriken Lindt & Spruengli AG is looking at plans to increase its payout to shareholders, according to local reports.

The CEO of the luxury chocolate maker, Ernst Tanner, was quoted by the publication Finanz und Wirtschaft saying: “There could be a share buyback or a higher dividend.”

Tanner added that he would prefer to use the group’s high cashflow to fund acquisitions, but that there were hardly any targets out there.
