SIXT SE increases dividend after record year
Munich, 4 June 2019 - At today's Annual General Meeting in Munich, the shareholders of SIXT SE approved a dividend payment of around EUR 101 million for fiscal year 2018. For ordinary shares a dividend of EUR 2.15 (2018: EUR 1.95) will be paid and for preference shares EUR 2.17 (2018: EUR 1.97). Discounting the one-time payment of EUR 2.05 per share for the sale of DriveNow last year, this corresponds to the highest dividend ever distributed by SIXT SE.
"2018 was the strongest year ever in the corporate history of SIXT. In business terms, we have never been as successful as today", noted Erich Sixt, CEO of SIXT SE during the AGM. "In the meantime, we have achieved a market-leading position as the largest European mobility service provider. We have been successfully driving forward our expansion in the US and at the start of this year launched the worldwide first integrated mobility platform, SIXT ONE, together with our new SIXT App. Our core business with the product SIXT rent is performing excellently and at the same time we are successfully penetrating relevant future markets with our new products SIXT share and SIXT ride", said Erich Sixt.
Outlook for the full year 2019
With 76.4% of the voting capital and 53.4% of the total share capital present, the shareholders approved all items on the agenda by a large majority.
