- Albany, GA (1888PressRelease) April 25, 2012 - At today's Annual General Meeting, Henkel CEO Kasper Rorsted outlined the main success drivers for the company's business performance in 2011. Henkel recorded the best year in its company history. We fully met all our financial targets and even over delivered on a number of them. The strong focus on our vision and values and on our strategic priorities, as well as the global footprint of our company significantly contributed to this achievement.
Henkel shareholders will also benefit from this strong performance. We are proposing to the Annual General Meeting to increase the dividend per preferred share from 0.72 to 0.80 euros and the dividend per ordinary share from 0.70 to 0.78 euros," Rorsted announced. "Since 2008 our dividend has thus increased by more than 50 percent."
Commenting on the company's performance at the beginning of fiscal 2012, Rorsted said: "We had a good start to 2012." For further details he referred to the publication of the first quarter results on May 9.
