29. Retained earnings

On a resolution proposed by the Management Board and approved by the Supervisory Board, the General Meeting of Shareholders voted to declare a dividend of EUR 97.5 million for 2011. This amount was deducted from retained earnings when paid in 2012. The dividend for 2010, which amounted to EUR 76.2 million, was paid out and deducted from retained profits in 2011.

The entire net result for 2012 was added to retained earnings, which, at 31 December 2012, therefore included the proposed dividend distribution for 2012, as detailed in the Other information section.
