Dividend payments

The Board of Directors proposes a dividend of CHF 10.80 per share (PY: CHF 10.40). The dividend payment is subject to withholding tax.

The number of shares with dividend rights will change if the number of shares held by Geberit AG changes. The Board of Directors may therefore adapt the total amount of the proposed dividend to the number of shares with dividend rights at the General Meeting.
