The distributable equity of the Parent Company at the end of the 2012 fiscal year was EUR 778.8 million (448.8).
The Board of Directors proposes to the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders that a dividend of EUR 0.65 per share be paid for 2012.
The number of shares entitling to a dividend totaled 81,905,242. The proposed distribution of dividend would thus be EUR 53,238,407.30. This would leave EUR 725.6 million of distributable profit funds at the Parent Company.
No material changes have taken place in the financial position of the Company since the end of the fiscal year. The financial standing of the Company is good and, according to the Board of Directors’ assessment, distributing the proposed dividend will not compromise the Company’s solvency.
