Proposed Dividend of €3.30 per Share

As in the previous year, a dividend of €3.30 per share is to be proposed to the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting, a payment of €3.0 billion to shareholders. Due to the exceptionally high economic burden caused by the coronavirus pandemic, which also impacted the BASF Group’s free cash flow, the proposed dividend per share will not be increased for the first time since the 2009 business year.

Based on the year-end share price for 2020, BASF shares offer a high dividend yield of around 5.1%. BASF is part of the DivDAX share index, which contains the 15 companies with the highest dividend yield in the DAX 30.
