EnviTec Biogas AG, Industriering 10a, 49393 Lohne – ISIN: DE000A0MVLS8, WKN: A0MVLS
At its meeting on 13 May 2016, the Supervisory Board of EnviTec Biogas AG decided to accept the Executive Board’s dividend proposal for the financial year 2015 and to propose a dividend of EUR 0.80 per share to the Annual General Meeting on 28 June 2016. The Executive Board and the Supervisory Board additionally decided to propose to the Annual General Meeting to convert part of the committed capital reserves into free capital reserves. For this purpose, the capital will be increased from company funds, followed by an ordinary capital reduction.
The dividend proposal continues EnviTec Biogas AG’s policy of giving its shareholders a share in the company’s good performance. A total amount of around EUR 11,880,000.00 is to be paid out for the financial year 2015.
The purpose of the planned conversion of committed into free capital reserves is to make currently committed capital available for future dividend payments to shareholders. They amount to EUR 50,000,000.00. Under German law, the conversion of committed capital reserves into free capital reserves requires a capital increase from company funds followed by an ordinary capital reduction. The proceeds from the ordinary capital reduction will be allocated to free capital reserves in full.
