TAKKT AGM approves dividend of EUR 0.32 per share - Sustainability Update presented
Ludwigsburg/Stuttgart, Germany, 07 May 2013. The Annual General Meeting of TAKKT AG today approved the payment of a dividend of EUR 0.32 per share. In the financial year 2012, the TAKKT Group achieved turnover growth of 10.3 percent due to acquisitions and, despite the weak European economy, was able to report pleasing earnings figures. TAKKT also presented its Sustainability Update at the AGM.
The AGM approved all the items on the agenda - including the discharging of the Management and Supervisory Boards for the financial year 2012 - by a large majority. Furthermore, the shareholders elected Stephan Gemkow, Chairman of the Management Board of Franz Haniel & Cie. GmbH, to the Supervisory Board of TAKKT AG. Mr Gemkow was appointed as a member of the Supervisory Board by the decision of the Stuttgart local court on 14 January 2013, and elected as its Chairman on 01 February 2013. He succeeds Prof. Dr Klaus Trützschler, who holds the position of Deputy Chairman of the Supervisory Board since 01 February 2013.
With the dividend of EUR 0.32 per share, the TAKKT Group will pay out around EUR 21 million. The payout ratio is around 31 percent of the profit of EUR 67 million for the financial year 2012, and consequently is consistent with the Group's long-term dividend policy.
