AGM 2019

Annual General Meeting

Deutsche Post AG’s AGM will be held at 10 am (CEST) on August 27, 2020. It will be conducted this year as a virtual event that is not attended in person by shareholders or their proxies, and it will be broadcast on the internet.

The AGM can be watched on the website without restriction until the end of the CEO’s speech. The rest of the online broadcast of the AGM is reserved exclusively for shareholders entered in the share register and their proxies via the online service.

The Board of Management and the Supervisory Board are proposing a dividend of €1.15 per share for financial year 2019, unchanged from the previous year. If accepted by the AGM, the dividend will be paid on September 1, 2020.

The dividend for 2019 will be paid partly from the contribution account for tax purposes as defined in Section 27 of the Körperschaftsteuergesetz (KStG - German corporate tax act) and is therefore partly tax free. The exact amount is still being calculated and will be announced soon before the payment. International shareholders will be subject to the tax law of their individual countries of residence.
