Dividend Overview

As a result of the strong operational performance in 2018, 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 € 3.35 per dividend-entitled share to shareholders at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) on May 9, 2019. This represents an increase of 29% compared to the prior year dividend (2017: € 2.60). Subject to the meeting’s approval, the dividend will be paid on May 14, 2019.

The total payout of € 666 million (2017: € 528 million) reflects a payout ratio of 39.0% of net income from continuing operations (2017: 37.0% excluding the negative one-time tax impact in 2017 as a result of the US tax reform). This is within the target range of between 30% and 50% of net income from continuing operations as defined in our dividend policy.
