BASF Group withdraws outlook for 2020 business year
The company is therefore withdrawing its outlook. It is currently impossible to reliably estimate both the length and the further spread of the coronavirus pandemic, as well as future measures to contain it. Consequently, concrete statements on the future development of sales and earnings cannot be made at present.
Proposed dividend for the 2019 business year unchanged
The Board of Executive Directors and Supervisory Board decided in today’s Supervisory Board meeting to propose a dividend of EUR 3.30 per share for resolution by the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting of BASF SE, which will be held June 18, 2020.
The company is therefore confirming its proposed dividend for the 2019 business year, as announced in the BASF Report 2019. Provided the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting approves the dividend proposal, the corresponding payment will be made to shareholders on June 23, 2020.
