Dividend announcement 2019
The Annual General Meeting of 29 May 2019 has resolved to appropriate the balance sheet profit of Leifheit Aktiengesellschaft for financial year 2018 in the amount of € 10,285,000.00 as follows:
|Payment of a dividend per eligible no-par-value bearer share:||€ 9,984,481.50|
|Retained earnings:||€ 300,518.50|
The dividend will be paid out from 3 June 2019 by the banks involved in the processing of the dividend less 25% capital gains tax and a 5.5% solidarity surcharge on the retained capital gains tax (26.375% in total), as well as any church tax due on capital gains tax. The taxable amounts may be credited towards the taxes calculated within the scope of the income or corporate tax assessment.
The paying agent is Deutsche Bank AG.
In accordance with the statutory provisions, fully taxable shareholders who have submitted an exemption certificate from the tax office for their place of residence or customary place of abode to their custodian bank will receive the dividend in the form of a credit without deduction of capital gains tax, solidarity surcharge or any church tax due. The same shall apply for shareholders who have submitted a certificate of exemption to their custodian bank, provided the exemption volume stated in said certificate has not already been used up by other income from capital gains.
For shareholders with limited tax liability, the retained capital gains tax – including the solidarity surcharge – may be subject to a discount on request in accordance with the applicable double taxation agreement between the Federal Republic of Germany and the country in question.
