Under the new policy, Vale would calculate dividend payouts based on its earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization, a gauge of operating profitability known as EBITDA, Valor said, citing sources close to the discussions.

That would allow the miner to pay between 30 percent and 50 percent of its net income, according to the report.

A press representative for Vale declined to comment immediately on the matter.
