back to overview

Hamburg, May 26, 2011 - Today’s AGM for Hamburg-based XING AG (ISIN DE000XNG8888) approved the special distribution of funds put forward by the Executive and Supervisory Boards. The special distribution of funds will amount to €20 million, which equates to a payout per share of approximately €3.70. At the shareholders’ request, the record date, i.e. the date on which shareholders have to be in possession of shares in order to qualify for the special distribution of funds, was brought forward to August 1, 2011. This provides shareholders entitled to a payout with more flexibility when it comes to share dealing. The payout will take place following the six-month blocking period which commences on the date of publication of the entry of the decision into the commercial register. Further information about the next steps in the process will be published in due course.
