Dividend policy

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

„This dividend policy is more closely linked to Covestro's overall financial position and enables us to increase the dividend in years with strong earnings.”

Dr Thomas Toepfer

Chief Financial Officer

Dividend distribution

Based on this dividend policy, the Covestro Board of Management had proposed to the Annual General Meeting a dividend of €3.40 per share for the financial year 2021. This proposal was adopted and resolved by the Annual General Meeting, which was held as a virtual meeting on April 21, 2022.
