The Managing Board plans to propose to the Company’s executive bodies that the dividend be increased from EUR 1.00 to EUR 1.10 per share for financial year 2011. This takes full account of the continuous increase in Group profits and the long-established dividend policy of distributing a minimum of 30% of Group profits (after taxes and non-controlling interests). The dividend payment date is provisionally set for 14 May 2012.
