DGAP-Ad-hoc: Aumann AG / Key word(s): Dividend
Beelen, 31 March 2020
Due to the latest development in the global COVID-19 pandemic, the Executive Board of Aumann AG ("Aumann", ISIN: DE000A2DAM03) decided today, to recommend the Annual General Meeting the suspension of the dividend payment for fiscal year 2019.
This decision does not stand for a change in Aumann's dividend policy. Rather, the recent drastic intensification of the COVID-19 pandemic led to this decision, as effects on existing supply chains as well as on procurement and sales markets are currently not assessable. By fully retaining the distributable profit, the Executive Board intends to strengthen Aumann's resilience to the challenges that lie ahead.
The Supervisory Board took notice of the Executive Board's decision in a consenting manner. Taking into account the further development of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Supervisory Board will timely consult with the Executive Board before the invitation to the Annual General Meeting will be published, to pass a resolution on the distribution of profits.
