Our shareholders share in the Company’s success


Lufthansa’s dividend policy is transparent, comprehensible and consistent with the financial strategy. As part of this policy, dividend payments are primarily based on the Group’s operating profit under IFRS. After successful financial years we have distributed between 30 and 40 per cent of operating profit as a dividend in the past.

However, this is subject to the ability to pay a dividend from the net profit for the year reported in the individual financial statements for Deutsche Lufthansa AG under HGB. In the financial year 2011 this figure was negative, however, largely due to the negative result and valuation effects in connection with the disposal of bmi. In a departure from the dividend policy, the Executive Board and Supervisory Board have nevertheless decided to propose the distribution of a dividend at the Annual General Meeting. Further details can be found in the section “Profit distribution”.
