Hawesko Group: Annual General Meeting approves payment of a dividend of € 2.50 per share

  • Shareholders to receive highest dividend in company history
  • Hawesko Group pays dividend for 24th year in succession
  • E-commerce to grow increasingly internationally in future

Hamburg, 15 June 2022. At the virtual Annual General Meeting of the wine trading group Hawesko Holding AG (HAW, HAWG.DE, DE0006042708), the shareholders approved the payment of a dividend of € 2.50 per share (€ 1.90 regular plus € 0.60 special dividend) for the 2021 financial year, payable from 17 June 2022. The company's shareholders will thus receive a dividend payment that, including the special dividend, is 25 per cent higher than the previous year's level. This corresponds to a dividend yield of around 4.5 percent based on a share price of € 55 on 13 June 2022. With this distribution Hawesko Holding AG is continuing its longstanding uninterrupted dividend tradition: the group's shareholders have received a dividend every year since the IPO in 1998.

"In the coming years we will no longer pay a Corona special dividend, but we nevertheless want to continue to pay more than just a stable basic dividend. It should and can grow with our future business success - more than 50 per cent of our earnings per share. We are and remain a dividend stock," comments the Chairman of the Board of Management of the Hawesko Group, Thorsten Hermelink.

All the proposals of the boards met with the approval of the virtual general meeting, and the regulations were fulfilled. With the resolved conversion of the company into a European public limited company, the Hawesko Group is sending out a clear signal both externally and internally for the intensified move towards Europe. The e-commerce segment is also to grow increasingly internationally in future: on the one hand with its own formats (HAWESKO, Vinos, Tesdorpf and WirWinzer) - and on the other through targeted acquisitions in other European countries. The WirWinzer marketplace model has already begun to take its first international steps with the aim of establishing an international marketplace model.

A detailed analysis of the current business development will be published on 10 August 2022 in the half-year report as of 30 June 2022.
