Dividend enables shareholders to share in profits

The Board of Management and Supervisory Board propose that the dividend paid for 2016 should remain unchanged at €0.07. This enables us to fulfil our aim of paying a consistent dividend. We plan to carry on enabling our shareholders to participate in the success of our Company in the form of a regular dividend. At the same time, we intend to continue funding a significant proportion of our growth ourselves, that is to say from our own capital.
