LANXESS follows a consistent dividend policy. We aim for our stockholders to share in our business performance in an appropriate and sustainable way. With a view to maintaining continuity, we also intend to propose a dividend for the challenging fiscal year 2013. The Board of Management and Supervisory Board of LANXESS AG will therefore propose to the Annual Stockholders’ Meeting on May 22, 2014, that a dividend of €0.50 per share be declared for fiscal 2013 (2012: €1.00 per share). Relative to the price of €48.48 at which LANXESS shares ended 2013, this equates to a dividend yield of 1.0%. Subject to approval of the corresponding resolution by the Annual Stockholders’ Meeting, the dividend will be paid on May 23, 2014.
