United Internet publishes final figures for fiscal year 2020 and proposes unchanged dividend of EUR 0.50 per share
Montabaur, March 25, 2021. United Internet AG published its final figures for the fiscal year 2020 today. The audited and certified annual financial statements confirm the preliminary figures for 2020 and guidance for 2021 announced in the ad-hoc disclosure of February 15, 2021.
On the basis of the figures for 2020, the Management Board and Supervisory Board of United Internet AG will propose a dividend of EUR 0.50 per share for the fiscal year 2020 (prior year: EUR 0.50) at the Annual Shareholders' Meeting on May 27, 2021. Based on around 187.2 million shares with dividend entitlement (as of December 31, 2020), the total dividend payment for fiscal year 2020 would amount to EUR 93.6 million. The dividend payout ratio would therefore be 28.3% of adjusted consolidated net income for 2020 after minority interests (EUR 330.2 million) and thus lie – despite the investments due to be made in the mobile communications network of 1&1 Drillisch – within the medium range targeted by the Group’s dividend policy.
