  • The Executive and Supervisory Boards of Knorr-Bremse AG will propose to the Annual Shareholders' Meeting that a dividend of EUR 1.80 per share be paid for fiscal 2019. Net income for fiscal 2019 totalled EUR 632.0 million, or EUR 3.65 per share. The proposed dividend would result in a total payout of EUR 290.2 million, corresponding to a payout ratio of just under 46% of consolidated net income in 2019. This ratio is within the target range of Knorr-Bremse AG's dividend policy (payout ratio of between 40% and 50% of net income). Based on the closing price of the Knorr-Bremse share at year-end 2019 (€90.75), this equates to a dividend yield of around 2.0%.

  • Guidance for fiscal year 2020 due to incalculable economic impacts of Covid-19 suspended Temporary closures of customer and supplier plants increased rapidly Extensive program of measures to ensure earnings stability and supply capability of the company initiated Increase in liquidity by EUR 750 million creates additional scope for action Dividend policy for fiscal year 2019 remains, subject to further developments, unchanged Knorr-Bremse AG's guidance for fiscal 2020, which the company published at its annual press conference on March 11, 2020, was made subject to the reservation that the spread of Covid-19 would have a limited impact. Over the past two weeks, the negative effects of the Covid-19 crisis have gained considerable importance, rendering numerous assumptions obsolete. Among other things, customers and suppliers in many parts of the world have carried out temporary plant closures. According to the current assessment of the Executive Board, it is therefore no longer possible to make a reliable estimate of the further course of business. The guidance for the fiscal year 2020 has thus been suspended. The Executive Board now expects a significant decrease of revenues and EBITDA compared to 2019.
