  • Dividend of €0.85 per share combines dividend continuity with capital discipline.
  • Newly structured and smaller Supervisory Board elects Clara C. Streit as Chair at its constituent meeting.

Bochum, 17 May 2023 –Vonovia SE (“Vonovia”) held its Annual General Meeting today. Vonovia’s shareholders resolved to distribute a dividend of €0.85 per share (2022: €1.66) for the fiscal year 2022, thus following the proposal of the Supervisory Board and Management Board to combine dividend continuity and capital discipline.

In the constituent meeting of the Supervisory Board following the Annual General Meeting, Clara C. Streit was elected Chair of the Supervisory Board. Clara C. Streit on her election: “I am very happy about the trust that my colleagues on the Supervisory Board have placed in me. And I am aware of the great responsibility that this office entails.
