Disclosure of inside information pursuant to Article 17 (1) of Regulation (EU) 596/2014 on Market Abuse

The Board of Management of Deutsche Beteiligungs AG (DBAG) today resolved to propose to DBAG’s Supervisory Board – based on the preliminary, as yet unaudited financial statements – to distribute a dividend of 1.60 euros per share for the financial year 2020/2021 (2019/2021: 0.80 euros). The dividend amount now to be proposed significantly exceeds the Company's forecast of an expected dividend for the financial year 2020/2021 amounting to between 1.00 and 1.20 euros a share.

The proposal for appropriation of profits is planned to be submitted to the Annual General Meeting, for the passing of a resolution on the appropriation of net retained profit, once DBAG’s audited financial statements have been confirmed. Subject to approval by the Supervisory Board in its meeting to discuss the financial statements on 1 December 2021, and shareholder approval at the Ordinary Annual General Meeting on 17 February 2022, the dividend of 1.60 per share now proposed translates into a dividend yield of 4.5 per cent, based on the average Xetra share price during the financial year 2020/2021.

The Company intends to publish the full, audited financial statements and consolidated financial statements for 2020/2021 on 2 December 2021.
