The outperformance of the Lufthansa share compared against its competitors in 2008 was only a slight consolation, as the price sank by 38.6 per cent in a weak stock market environment. However, it does reflect how well we are set up relative to the peer group and the high level of investor confidence we enjoy. We stand by our aspiration of creating sustainable value, also for our shareholders. We therefore again intend to give our shareholders a share of profits earned that is appropriate under the circumstances. The proposed distribution of EUR 0.70 per share represents a dividend yield of 6.3 per cent.
