After the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting which was planned to take place in Hanover on April 30, 2020 had to be postponed due to the developing Coronavirus situation, the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting is now planned to take place on Tuesday, July 14, 2020 as an online-only event.

The Annual Shareholders’ Meeting is planned as an online-only event without the physical presence of shareholders or their proxies.

Does the divdend proposal of €4.00 remain?

Our last official communication was on March 13, 2020, when we announced that the postponement of the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting will also result in a delay of the resolution on the appropriation of net income for the fiscal year 2019. Such resolution by the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting is required for the payment of the proposed dividend of €4.00 per no-par-value share.
