Announcement consistent with § 15 WpHG
Deutsche Beteiligungs AG, WKN A1TNUT
The Board of Management and the Supervisory Board of Deutsche Beteiligungs AG (DBAG) announced that, at the Annual Meeting of Shareholders, they will recommend raising the base dividend, which has remained unchanged for seven years, by 0.10 euros to 0.50 euros. This is in recognition of the strong growth of DBAG’s fund investment services and the fee income thus derived. For the truncated 2014/2015 financial year, in which DBAG looked back on 50 years of DBAG and 30 years as a listed company, the Board of Management and the Supervisory Board today also voted to recommend using the profit earned in the past for a distribution, which, in effect, would double the base dividend. In total, a dividend of 1.00 euro per share is slated for distribution.
Deutsche Beteiligungs AG will issue the financial results of its truncated 2014/2015 financial year tomorrow, 10 December 2015.
The Board of Management
