AURELIUS Executive Board to propose payment of record dividend of EUR 5.00 per share

Munich, 5 December 2017 - The Executive Board of AURELIUS Equity Opportunities SE & Co. KGaA (ISIN DE000A0JK2A8) will propose to the Supervisory Board for the annual shareholder meeting on 18 May 2018 a considerable increase in the dividend to EUR 5.00 (2017: EUR 4.00) per share, made up of a base dividend of EUR 1.50 and a participation dividend of EUR 3.50 per share.

Reflecting the very positive growth of the AURELIUS Group in all areas, the base dividend will go up significantly and permanently from EUR 1.00 in 2017 to EUR 1.50 per share, a 50 percent increase. An additional EUR 3.50 dividend per share (2017: EUR 3.00) for successful exits since the last annual shareholder meeting on 21 June 2017 is being proposed as well.

With this dividend proposal AURELIUS has made a change in its dividend policy. This significant, permanent increase in the basic dividend underlines the ongoing earnings strength of the company's business model. The positive results from this year's exits will be paid out over several years, ensuring that in 2018 and the years thereafter attractive participation dividends can be paid out.
