On May 3, 2019 the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting has approved a dividend payment of €3.20 per share. We stand by our ambitious dividend policy of increasing our dividend each year and pay out €2.9 billion to our shareholders.
Based on the year-end share price for 2018, BASF shares offer a high dividend yield of around 5.3%. BASF is part of the DivDAX share index, which contains the 15 companies with the highest dividend yield in the DAX 30.
One of our financial goals is to increase the dividend per share every year based on a strong free cash flow.
