Supervisory Board and Management Board intend to propose to the Annual General Meeting a dividend of 0.52 Euro per share, as high as in the previous year.

The guidance given on February 17, 2020 does not yet include any effects of the spread of the coronavirus. However, it has to be assumed that the spread will also have consequences for Elmos' business development. A quantification of these effects is not yet possible.
