Picture Dividend

Dividend

Deutsche Telekom offers its shareholders a strong dividend yield with high reliability. Deutsche Telekom shares have therefore been a component of the DivDAX, the index of the 15 DAX shares with the highest dividend yields, since 2005.

70ct dividend per share for the fiscal year 2022

Deutsche Telekom has announced a dividend of 70 cents per share for the 2022 financial year. This corresponds to Deutsche Telekom's dividend policy of 40 to 60 percent of the adjusted earnings per share (EPS): the forecast for EPS in 2022 is >€1.50.

The approval of the Annual General Meeting is required for the distribution of the dividend. The Annual General Meeting will take place on April 5, 2023 in Bonn. The payment of the dividend to the shareholders takes place immediately after the Annual General Meeting.

As usually at Deutsche Telekom, the dividend was announced with the results for the third quarter of the fiscal year on November 10, 2022.

Tax free payment of dividends

Out of today’s perspective the dividend payment from the tax contribution account in accordance with § 27 will continue over the next years.

Background: As the dividend is to be paid in full from the tax contribution account in accordance with § 27 of the Corporation Tax Act (Körperschaftsteuergesetz– KStG), payment will be made without deducting capital gains tax or the solidarity surcharge. Dividends paid to shareholders in Germany are not subject to taxation. Dividends do not entail tax refunds or tax credits. In the German tax authorities’ view the dividend payment reduces the acquisition costs of the shares for tax purposes.

Outlook on future dividends

Dividend policy
