Here you find important information about our dividend.

Dividend policy

Covestro intends its shareholders to participate appropriately in the company's success. To this end, the company has formulated a new dividend policy, valid since the financial year 2020: Between 35% and 55% of the net income is to be distributed as a dividend.

Dividend distribution

The dividend available for distribution is based on the distributable profit reported in the annual financial statements of Covestro AG, which were prepared according to the provisions of the German Commercial Code (HGB). Since the 2020 annual financial statements, Covestro AG’s dividend policy has been more closely linked to the Group’s overall business situation and specifies that Covestro AG will distribute a portion of the Group’s net income to shareholders of Covestro AG. Since the Group again generated negative net income, no dividend will be paid to Covestro AG shareholders for fiscal 2023, as for fiscal 2022, in accordance with the current dividend policy. As a result, in the year 2023, no dividend was paid for fiscal 2022 per share carrying dividend rights.
