Dividend Overview

As a result of the strong operational performance in 2017, the company’s robust financial position as well as Management’s confidence in our long-term growth aspirations, the adidas AG Executive and Supervisory Boards will recommend paying a dividend of € 2.60 per dividend-entitled share to shareholders at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) on May 9, 2018. This represents an increase of 30% compared to the prior year dividend (2016: € 2.00). Subject to the meeting’s approval, the dividend will be paid on May 15, 2018.

The total payout of € 530 million (2016: € 405 million) reflects a payout ratio of 37.1% (2016: 37.4%) of net income from continuing operations excluding the negative one-time tax impact as a result of the US tax reform in 2017. This is within the target range of between 30% and 50% of net income from continuing operations as defined in our dividend policy.
