Dividend per share on the rise

HUGO BOSS pursues a profit-based distribution policy that allows the shareholders to participate appropriately in the Group’s earnings development. The policy is to distribute to shareholders between 60% and 80% of consolidated net income on a regular basis. On account of the rise in profits in the past fiscal year, the Group’s strong financial position and its financial outlook for 2015, the Managing Board and Supervisory Board intend to propose to the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting to be held on May 12, 2015 a dividend of EUR 3.62 per share for fiscal year 2014 (2013: EUR 3.34). The proposal is equivalent to a payout ratio of 75% of the consolidated net income attributable to the shareholders of the parent company in 2014 (2013: 70%). Assuming that the shareholders approve the proposal, the dividend will be paid out on the day after the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting, Wednesday, May 13, 2015. On the basis of the number of shares outstanding at year-end, the amount distributed will come to EUR 250 million (2013: EUR 231 million).
