*Proposal from the Board of Management and the Supervisory Board
Dividend payout increased substantially
After two years of stable dividends, the Board of Management and the Supervisory Board propose to increase the dividend payout to €2.40 per share for 2022 (2021: €2.00 per share). This represents an absolute increase of 20% year on year, in line with our strong operational performance. The dividend payment corresponds to 30% of 2022 core EPS (2021: 31%). Based on the Bayer stock price at the end of 2022, the dividend yield is 5.0% (2021: 4.3%).
