Dividends and appropriation of profit
HUGO BOSS AG closed fiscal year 2014 with a net income of EUR 304 million (2014: EUR 292 million). The unappropriated surplus after transfer to retained earnings came to EUR 255 million (2014: EUR 255 million). Given the profits-based dividend policy, the Supervisory Board and the Managing Board will propose to the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting that, unchanged as against the prior year, a dividend of EUR 3.62 per share (2014: EUR 3.62 per share) be paid out for fiscal year 2015. This corresponds to a figure of EUR 250 million (2014: EUR 250 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 (2014: EUR 5 million).
