Dividend proposal for fiscal 2016
The Supervisory and Executive Boards of RWE AG will propose to the Annual General Meeting on 27 April 2017 that no dividend will be paid for common shares for the 2016 fiscal year. The dividend for preferred shares will amount to the minimum of €0.13 per share stipulated by the Articles of Incorporation. The dividend proposal reflects the significant financial burdens resulting from the transfer to the new nuclear fund in mid-2017. We do, however, intend to once again begin paying dividends to holders of common shares next year.
