Dividend Payout during the last six years
The dividend for the previous fiscal year (subject to the approval of the Annual Shareholders' Meeting) is payed once a year. The dividend is paid out on the next banking day after the day of the ASM.
After a hiatus of three years, Continental has been resuming payment of dividends in 2012. As in the past, this allows shareholders to partake of the company's success.
The net loss of Continental AG disallowed in 2010 the distribution of dividends for fiscal year 2009. As of December 31, 2010, Continental AG posted net retained earnings of €61.1 million (PY: retained losses of €993.7 million). The Annual Shareholders’ Meeting agreed to the proposal, that no dividend be paid for fiscal year 2010. Regardless of this, existing loan agreements would had limited total possible distribution to €50.0 million anyway, corresponding to €0.25 per share.
