DGAP-News: Grammer AG / Key word(s): AGM/EGM Grammer AG: increase in dividend to EUR 0.65 per share approved 28.05.2014 / 15:39 --------------------------------------------------------------------- Grammer AG: increase in dividend to EUR 0.65 per share approved Amberg, May 28, 2014 - At Grammer AG's annual general meeting, the shareholders approved the proposal of the Executive Board and the Supervisory Board, passing a resolution to adopt an increased dividend of EUR 0.65 per share. This translates into an increase of 30 percent over the previous year. The basis for this decision was the new records which were achieved in the previous year. The dividend for 2012 had been EUR 0.50 per share. Accordingly, the company will be distributing around EUR 7.3 million on the total of 11,214,624 dividend-entitled shares, equivalent to around 47 percent of the unappropriated surplus which Grammer AG generated in the previous year. "2013 was a consistently good year for Grammer AG," said Hartmut MÜller, CEO, expressing his pleasure. "Despite a generally mixed year for the automotive industry, we were able to substantially improve our Company's revenues and profitability. By significantly increasing the dividend over the previous year, we are sharing this success with our shareholders." Almost 50% of the voting-entitled capital was represented at Grammer AG's annual general meeting. A large majority of shareholders voted to ratify the actions of the Executive Board and the Supervisory Board in 2013. All other resolutions of the agenda were also passed by the annual general meeting with the necessary majority.
