Dividends and appropriation of profit
HUGO BOSS AG closed fiscal year 2013 with a net income of EUR 211 million (2012: EUR 288 million). The unappropriated surplus after withdrawal from retained earnings came to EUR 235 million (2012: EUR 220 million). Given the profits-based dividend policy, the Supervisory Board and the Managing Board will propose to the Annual Shareholders' Meeting that a dividend of EUR 3.34 per share be paid out for fiscal year 2013 (2012: EUR 3.12 per share). This corresponds to a figure of EUR 231 million (2012: EUR 215 million). It will also be proposed to the Annual Shareholders' Meeting that the dividend attributable to own shares totaling EUR 5 million be carried forward to new account (2012: EUR 4 million).
