The Supervisory Board and the Executive Board of JENOPTIK AG, Jena, propose the Annual General Meeting on June 6, 2012 to use the net income of JENOPTIK AG to pay a dividend of 0.15 euros per share and to carry forward the remaining amount. In its meeting today (Thursday, March 22, 2012) the Supervisory Board agreed to the proposal of the Executive Board.
“With this distribution we prove that Jenoptik has become a company which unites growth with financial soundness”, said Jenoptik Chairman Dr. Michael Mertin in Jena on Thursday. As announced, Jenoptik fulfilled its objectives in 2011 and restored its ability to pay out a dividend. Mertin adds that this is far more than the achievement of a positive EBIT. “We have achieved a three-fold harmony of EBIT, net profit and cash flows, at the same time reducing net debt. The prospect for increasing value in the future, in short the overall constitution of the company, is positive”, says the Jenoptik Chairman.
Jenoptik continues to strive for both organic and non-organic growth. The detailed figures for fiscal year 2011 and the outlook for the current fiscal year 2012 of the Jenoptik Group will be presented at the press conference which will take place in Jena tomorrow (Friday).
