Dividend

Dividend payment for fiscal 2016

The Annual General Meeting resolved a dividend of €0.13 per dividend-bearing preferred share for fiscal 2016. No dividend will be distributed for the common shares. On the basis of the expectations for 2017, the Executive Board envisages paying a dividend for the current business year of €0.50 per common and preferred share. The Executive Board aims to at least maintain this dividend level in subsequent years. In this context, RWE is orienting itself towards operating cash flows that are freely available on a sustainable level.

Furthermore the Executive Board of RWE AG discussed the allocation of funds from the reimbursement of the Nuclear Fuel Tax which has been declared null and void by the German Federal Constitutional Court with the Supervisory Board. The Executive Board intends to propose to the annual general meeting in 2018 a one-off special dividend amounting to €1.00 per common and preferred share. The special dividend payment shall be made as a one-off payment in addition to the €0.50 dividend per share envisaged for the fiscal year 2017.
