Stock Info & Dividend

Dividend per Share

At the Software AG Annual Shareholders’ Meeting on May 31, 2016, in Darmstadt, Germany, it was decided to pay out a dividend for fiscal 2015 in the amount of € 0.55 per share. The total payout sum for 2015 amounts to approx. € 41.9 million.

We plan to maintain our stable, continuity-focused dividend policy in the future as well. The economic environment and our current liquidity requirements must also be taken into account, however. The pay-out ratio is based on the average of free cash flow and Group net income and ranges a corridor between 25 %
and 33 %.
