Dividend per share
* As proposed to the Annual General Meeting.
Subject to the approval of the Annual General Meeting of voestalpine AG, which will take place on July 1, 2020, a dividend of EUR 0.20 per share will be paid to the company’s shareholders. This represents a decrease of 81.8% compared to the previous year’s dividend of EUR 1.10 per share. The reduction in the dividend stems from the voestalpine Group’s earnings performance in the business year 2019/20, the tense economic environment in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the decline in the price of voestalpine’s share. Relative to its average price of EUR 23.38 in the reporting period, the dividend yield for the business year is 0.9% (previous year: 3.1%).
