Proposal for the Distribution of available retained Earnings
1 Includes dividends not distributed on treasury stock held (CHF 1,013,600), dividends distributed on options exercised during the period January 1 to April 26, 2016 (CHF -663,360) and unclaimed, expired dividends (CHF 965).
2 Number of registered shares and participation certificates, status as at December 31, 2016. During the period from January 1 until record date (April 25, 2017), the dividend-bearing capital (the number of registered shares and participation certificates) can change as a result of additions and retirements within either class of treasury stock as well as the exercise of options, granted through the employee stock option plan. Consequently the allocation of the approved capital contribution reserve to free reserves will be adjusted accordingly.
For 2016 the Board of Directors proposes a total dividend of CHF 880.– per registered share and CHF 88.– per participation certificate.
CHF 300.– per registered share and CHF 30.– per participation certificate are distributed out of the approved capital contribution reserve (agio) and CHF 580.– per registered share and CHF 58.– per participation certificate are distributed out of retained earnings.
