The Annual General Meeting of our company on June 22, 2016 resolved to use the unappropriated net retained profits for fiscal year 2015 of €69,208,298.30 as follows:

Distribution of a dividend of €0.11 
per ordinary share carrying dividend rights                             €32,459,879.98  

Distribution of a dividend of €0.17 
per preferred share carrying dividend rights                            €35,054,925.65  

Amount to be carried forward to new account                          €1,693,492.67

The dividend will be paid out by the depositary banks via Clearstream Banking AG from June 23, 2016, after general deduction of 25% withholding tax (capital yields tax) and the 5.5% solidarity surcharge due on the capital yields tax (altogether 26.375%) and, if applicable, church tax on the withholding tax.

In the case of shareholders based in Germany the dividend will be paid without deducting capital yields tax, solidarity surcharge and, if applicable, church tax if they have submitted to their depository bank a “Non-assessment note“ issued by the responsible tax authority. The same applies in whole or in part to shareholders who have issued their depository bank with an exemption order, provided the amount of the exemption stated in this order has not already been used up by other income from capital investments.

In the case of shareholders based outside Germany the capital yields tax including solidarity surcharge withheld may be reduced under double taxation agreements existing between the Federal Republic of Germany and the respective state.
