At the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting, the Board of Executive Directors and the Supervisory Board will propose a dividend payment of €2.60 per share. We stand by our ambitious dividend policy and plan to pay out around €2.4 billion to our shareholders. Based on the year-end share price for 2012, BASF shares offer a high dividend yield of 3.65%. BASF is part of the DivDAX share index, which contains the 15 companies with the highest dividend yield in the DAX 30. We continue to aim to increase our dividend each year, or at least maintain it at the previous year’s level.
