The Annual General Meeting will take place on 25 February 2021, at 10:00 a.m., CET.
Based on section 1, paragraphs 2 and 6 of the Act Concerning Measures Under the Law of Companies, Cooperative Societies, Associations, Foundations and Commonhold Property to Combat the Effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic (“COVID-19 Act”), published as section 2 of the Act on Mitigating the Consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic in Civil, Insolvency and Criminal Procedural Law dated 27 March 2020 as well as the Regulation on the Extension of Measures in Company, Cooperative, Association and Foundation Law on Mitigating the Consequences of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Management Board, with the approval of the Supervisory Board, has resolved to hold the Annual General Meeting as a virtual event without the physical attendance of the shareholders or their proxies. Due to the unforeseeable further development of the COVID-19 pandemic and the corresponding rules of conduct, this measure is intended in particular to avoid health risks for shareholders, employees, external service providers as well as board members and ensure planning security. The Annual General Meeting will be held in the physical presence of the Chair of the Annual General Meeting and members of the Management Board and the Supervisory Board (with the inclusion, as required, of a notary public commissioned to record the minutes) as well as company proxies at the company’s registered office, Am Campeon 1–15, 85579 Neubiberg, Germany, i.e. the location of the Annual General Meeting as defined in section 121, paragraph 3, AktG. The physical attendance of shareholders or their proxies is not possible.
All shareholders who are recorded in the Company’s stock register and have registered for the Annual General Meeting by no later than the end of 18 February 2021 (CET) are entitled, together with their respective proxies, to participate in the Annual General Meeting. Participation and voting rights are based on the shareholding recorded in the stock register on the day of the Annual General Meeting. However, please be aware that for procedural reasons, there is a so-called entry freeze (Technical Record Date) between 19 February 2021 and the day of the Annual General Meeting (both days inclusive) and no entries can be made in the Company’s stock register during that time. Registering for the AGM, however, does not cause shares to be blocked, so shareholders can continue to make use of their shares without restriction after registration and irrespective of the entry freeze. Purchasers of shares for which applications for registration in the stock register are not timely received by the Company may not, however, exercise rights attached to these shares to attend the Annual General Meeting and vote, unless they have obtained a power of attorney or are otherwise authorized to exercise such rights.
Your registration must be received no later than 18 February 2021, midnight (CET). We cannot consider notices of attendance received after that date.

All persons who are recorded in the Company’s stock register by the day of the Annual General Meeting are entitled to participate in the Annual General Meeting. If the shares are sold, the seller will possibly be deleted from the stock register by the day of the Annual General Meeting and will therefore no longer be authorized to participate. In this case, if a registration confirmation has already been issued, it becomes invalid.

No. Your entitlement is independent of your participation or voting in the Annual General Meeting. Please note, however, that a dividend can only be paid if a majority of shareholders participating in the Annual General Meeting supports a dividend proposal.
The Supervisory Board and Management Board proposed to pay a dividend of EUR 0.22 per qualifying share. The total amount proposed to be distributed to the shareholders amounts to approximately EUR 286 million (the exact amount depends on the number of own shares held by the Company – which do not qualify for a dividend – at the time of the Annual General Meeting).
According to the proposal of the Supervisory Board and Management Board the amount remaining after the dividend payment will be transferred to revenue reserves (Gewinnrücklagen).
Yes, from the dividend for the 2020 fiscal year taxes equal to 26.375% of the dividend amount (25% withholding tax and 5.5% solidarity surcharge thereon) will be withheld. Such withholding tax will not be applied, however, if and to the extent the taxpayer provided a non-filing certificate or an exemption certificate to his/her custodian bank.
Foreign investors also have to check the taxation of the dividend in their country of residence.
Please note that due to the variety and number of shareholders we cannot provide specific tax advice, but only make general statements about the taxation principles. We kindly request that you contact your tax advisor for specific details.
This depends on the share price. Relative to an assumed share price of EUR 30 and based upon a dividend of EUR 0.22 per share the dividend yield is appr. 0.7%.
All Infineon shares that are in your securities account on 25 February 2021, i.e. on the day of the Annual General Meeting that decides upon the proposed dividend, qualify for a dividend.
The decisive accounts are those of Infineon Technologies AG, which have been prepared in accordance with the German Commercial Code (HGB). The balance sheet profit (Bilanzgewinn) shown there is subject to the resolution of the Annual General Meeting.
Provided that the Annual General Meeting on 25 February 2021 decides a dividend, as per the applicable provisions of the German Stock Corporation Act the payment will be effected on 02 March 2021. The ex dividend date will be 26 February 2021.
The dividend will be credited to your bank account on the payment date. You do not have to provide for any specific arrangements.
Please contact your personal/custodian bank.
Normally the individual shareholder’s bank draws up a statement of the dividend paid and informs its customer accordingly. Infineon does not notify the shareholders.
