Information about the dividend for fiscal 2019

In 2019, we once again met our financial targets and want our stockholders to share in the company’s success accordingly. The Board of Management and the Supervisory Board will therefore propose an attractive dividend of €2.80 (previous year: €2.80) to the Annual Stockholders’ Meeting. This corresponds to 43.8% of our core earnings per share (core EPS) from continuing operations of €6.40 for 2019. The payout ratio for 2019 is again above our target range of 30% to 40% of core EPS. This illustrates the importance we attach to paying a stable dividend.
For the medium term, we aim to fall back into the target range and further increase our dividend.
Based on the Bayer stock price of €72.81 at the end of 2019, the dividend yield is 3.8%.
