If the SAP Supervisory Board and the shareholders at the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders approve this recommendation, the total amount distributed in dividends would be euro 1.3 billion (2010: euro 713 million). The dividend payout ratio would be 38% (2010: 39%).
"We believe SAP’s best year ever should also be our shareholders’ best year ever," said Bill McDermott and Jim Hagemann Snabe, co-CEOs of SAP. "The proposed dividend will allow our shareholders to participate in our success."
