We strive to offer attractive dividends to our shareholders. The framework for this is determined by our net income and the need for an adequate capitalization.
Please note: This dividend policy represents the current intention of the Board of Management and the Supervisory Board and may be revised in the future. Also, the dividend payment in any given year is subject to specific dividend proposals by the Board of Management and the Supervisory Board, each of which may elect to deviate from this dividend policy if appropriate under the then prevailing circumstances, as well as to the decision of the Annual General Meeting.
As of February 15, 2019 (Release of the preliminary results 2018)
2 The proposal for appropriation of net earnings reflects the 961,636 treasury shares held directly and indirectly by the Company as of December 31, 2018. Such treasury shares are not entitled to the dividend pursuant to § 71b of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG). Should there be any change in the number of shares entitled to the dividend by the date of the Annual General Meeting, the above proposal will be amended accordingly and presented for resolution on the appropriation of net earnings at the Annual General Meeting, with an unchanged dividend of EUR 9.00 per each share entitled to dividend.
