This is equivalent to a 4.8 % increase over the previous year (€ 2.10 per share) and is the highest payout to date for Dürr shareholders.

Our shareholders are to benefit from this positive earnings development with a € 2.20 dividend, the highest in our company's history." As reported, the Dürr Group achieved earnings after taxes of € 201.5 million in fiscal 2017. At € 289.6 million, EBIT also reached a new all-time high, as did order intake, rising to almost € 3.9 billion.
