Frequently Asked Questions

The Annual General Meeting will take place on 21 February 2019, at 10:00 a.m., CET, at the ICM (International Congress Center Munich), Am Messesee 6, Messegelände, 81829 Munich, Germany.

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 14 February 2019 (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 15 February 2019 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.

Your registration must be received no later than 14 February 2019, 12 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 an admission ticket has already been issued, it becomes invalid.

In case of an address change, please contact your depositary bank who will arrange for an update of the Company´s stock register.

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 AGM has approved the payment of a dividend of EUR 0.27 per qualifying share for the 2018 fiscal year. The total amount distributed to the shareholders amounts to approximately EUR 305 million.

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, in contrast to prior year dividends, from the dividend for the 2018 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 17 and based upon a dividend of EUR 0.27 per share the dividend yield is appr. 1.59%.

All Infineon shares that are in your securities account on 21 February 2019, 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 21 February 2019 decides a dividend, as per the applicable provisions of the German Stock Corporation Act the payment will be effected on 26 February 2019. The ex dividend date will be 22 February 2019.

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.
