After confirmation of the financial statements at 31 December 2007 and
approval of the consolidated financial statements at 31 December 2007, the
Supervisory and Management Boards of TAKKT AG, Stuttgart, have resolved to
propose to the Annual General Meeting on 7 May 2008 a significant increase
in dividends for the financial year 2007. The ordinary dividend is to
increase by 28.0 percent, from EUR 0.25 to EUR 0.32 per share. The cash
inflow from the sale of Conney Safety Products LLC also allows the
distribution of a special dividend of EUR 0.48 per share. The total
dividend would amount to EUR 0.80 per share, more than triple the prior
year’s dividend.
 
Thanks to the very strong balance sheet and the stable business model,
TAKKT will continue in future to enable its shareholders to participate
directly in the profits and cash flow of the company in so far as no larger
investment projects or acquisitions are undertaken.

The shares of the TAKKT AG are admitted to stock exchange trading with
official quotation at the Prime Standard of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange
and the Stuttgart Stock Exchange.
