Hamburg, 23 April 2020 – Based on both the positive 2019 financial year and the unforeseeable impact of the coronavirus pandemic on future business, the Management Board and Supervisory Board had decided on 26 March 2020 to propose to the Annual General Meeting on 23 June 2020 that a dividend of EUR 1.50 per share be paid for the 2019 financial year. This proposal was subject to possible adjustments depending on the development of the coronavirus crisis.
 
In light of the ongoing spread of COVID-19 and its effects on the economic development of individual countries and on liquidity, the Management Board and the Supervisory Board decided today to recommend to the Annual General Meeting a suspension of dividend payments.
 
To protect both employees and shareholders, the Management Board and the Supervisory Board also decided to hold the Annual General Meeting on 23 June 2020 virtually, without the physical presence of shareholders or their representatives. Further details will be included in the coming invitation to the Annual General Meeting.
