Bietigheim-Bissingen, April 30, 2014 - Dürr AG will be paying a dividend of € 1.45 per share for the financial year 2013.

Ralf W. Dieter, CEO of Dürr AG, addressed more than 600 shareholders and guests, saying: “2013 was yet another record year for Dürr, in which we reached the targets we set ourselves. Our shareholders are to benefit from Dürr’s positive performance with an appropriate dividend.” Dieter expressly thanked the workforce of the Dürr Group, amounting to approx. 8,200 employees: “Our managers and employees represent our key success factor. Their expertise is the reason why customers trust us to execute all orders placed with a particular degree of reliability.” For fiscal 2013, employees covered by collective pay scale agreements at German locations received a record profit participation amounting to € 2,750.
