In the light of the positive business development in 2017, the Board of Management and the Supervisory Board will propose to the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting to be held on April 5, 2018 that the dividend per share for the 2017 financial year be increased to €3.65 (prior year €3.25). This corresponds to a total dividend distribution of €3.9 billion to our shareholders, which is significantly above the high level of €3.5 billion distributed in the previous year. We aim to achieve a sustainable dividend development also in the coming years. (See graphic B.18)
