Despite the challenging environment, in the business year 2021/22 voestalpine AG recorded the best results in the company’s history. These record results are reflected in this year’s dividend: at the 30th Annual General Meeting, a dividend of EUR 1.20 per share was approved for the business year 2021/22. This represents an increase of 140% over the previous year (EUR 0.50).

The dividend shall be paid out starting on July 18, 2022 (ex-dividend date is July 14, 2022).

Relative to the voestalpine share’s average price of EUR 33.63 in the business year 2021/22, the dividend yield is 3.6%, a substantial increase over that of the previous business year (2.0%). Since its listing on the stock exchange in 1995, voestalpine AG has paid out a dividend to its shareholders every year.
