- Dividend per share increases by 3.1% year-on-year to EUR 0.33 based on PATRIZIA's solid business performance despite a difficult market environment
- Shareholders vote in favour of an adjusted remuneration system with a new shareholder value component, which promotes entrepreneurial participation of the Executive Directors
- All agenda items approved with large majority
Augsburg, 25 May 2023. PATRIZIA SE, a leading partner for global investments in real assets, today successfully hosted its first Annual General Meeting as a monistic SE in virtual format with direct Q&A opportunity for shareholders.
The vast majority of shareholders approved all items on the agenda of the Annual General Meeting. This includes a dividend payment of EUR 0.33 per share for the 2022 fiscal year, a 3.1% increase in the dividend per share compared to the previous year and the fifth dividend increase in a row. PATRIZIA SE shares will trade at a dividend discount on 26 May 2023 and the dividend will then be paid on 30 May 2023.
In addition, a modified remuneration system for the company was decided on today’s AGM in connection with the appointment of the CEO Designate, Asoka Wöhrmann. For this purpose, an additional long-term incentive element, the so-called Shareholder Value Long-Term Incentive (SVL), was implemented. The ambitious long-term shareholder value targets are linked to the performance of PATRIZIA shares and the capital market valuation in the form of an EBITDA multiple in addition to profitability targets. This forward-looking incentive scheme strengthens the link between corporate success and Executive Director remuneration and underlines PATRIZIA's commitment to generating sustainable value for its stakeholders.
In order to fully participate in the new SVL, Asoka Wöhrmann will personally invest EUR 3 million in PATRIZIA shares via purchases in the market. This decision not only demonstrates Asoka Wöhrmann's confidence and conviction in PATRIZIA, but also his personal commitment to drive the success of the company as its future CEO and achieving long-term value enhancement for all shareholders.
The detailed results of the Annual General Meeting are available on the following website:
