Dividend policy


The general assembly pursues – as advised by the executive board – a policy which tries to pay out a dividend, whilst keeping a close watch on preserving the healthy balance between a distribution of dividends and the investment possibilities.

The board of directors will propose to the general assembly of 21 May 2019 that a gross dividend of EUR 5.50 per share be paid out for the full year 2018. Taking into account the gross interim dividend of EUR 5.00 per share paid in July 2018, the gross final dividend amounts to EUR 0.50 per share.
