The Management Board of UNIQA Versicherungen AG intends to propose to the Supervisory Board and subsequently to the Annual General Meeting to pay a dividend for financial year 2010 of 40 cents per share, unchanged over 2008 and 2009, thereby making a disbursement to shareholders of approximately 57 million euro.
The company's twelfth ordinary Annual General Meeting will be held in Vienna on 30 May 2011.
"We have maintained the dividends for our shareholders at a high and stable level, even in the years affected by the financial crisis. The solid performance put in by group of companies, even in this very challenging environment, enables us to make dividend payments on this scale again this year," UNIQA's CEO Konstantin Klien said:
UNIQA currently expects Group profit on ordinary activities for 2010 of just over 150 million euro, higher than forecast in January (135 to 140 million euro).
The definitive annual report for 2010 will be presented at the end of April, following confirmation by the auditors and after the meeting of the Supervisory Board to approve the financial statements.
