The General Meeting of Miba AG today decided to distribute a dividend of 3.00 euros per share (previous year 3.30 euros) for the fiscal year 2008-09. Based on the share price at the balance sheet date (January 31, 2009), this represents a dividend yield of 4.3 percent.
The 23rd Annual General Meeting held on June 19, 2009 decided to distribute a dividend of 3.00 euros per common and preferred share for the fiscal year 2008-09 (as at January 31, 2009). By reducing the dividend from 3.30 to 3.00 euros per share – despite significantly improved results for fiscal year 2008-09 – Miba is taking the general economic situation into account. In addition, it underscores the company's continuity in paying dividends and gives shareholders an appropriate return on the capital they have invested. June 29, 2009 was set as the date of payment for the dividend.
Dr. Wolfgang Berndt, whose term had expired, was elected to the Supervisory Board for another five years at the Annual General Meeting.
