The Executive Board of RWE AG discussed the allocation of funds from the reimbursement of the Nuclear Fuel Tax which has been declared null and void by the German Federal Constitutional Court with the Supervisory Board. The Executive Board intends to propose to the annual general meeting in 2018 a one-off special dividend amounting to EUR 1.00 per common and preferred share. The special dividend payment shall be made as a one-off payment in addition to the EUR 0.50 dividend per share envisaged for the fiscal year 2017 which is geared to the operating cash flows that are freely available on a sustainable level.
The predominant part of the reimbursement of the Nuclear Fuel Tax shall be used for the improvement of the financial strength of the company.
