The annual general meeting is also deciding on the proposed dividend of 2.010 euro per preference share and of 2.004 euro per ordinary share.
In his speech, CEO Prof. Dr. Martin Winterkorn said: "Porsche SE has developed into a financially strong holding company and is today in an excellent position." He stated that not only Porsche SE but also Volkswagen AG and Porsche AG had emerged stronger from the creation of the integrated automotive group in August 2012. "We have succeeded in discharging Porsche SE from debt, without touching the core investment, the 50.7 percent of the ordinary shares in Volkswagen AG," explained Winterkorn. The executive board sees vast potential for adding value in the coming years. Porsche SE expects a profit in the low-single-digit billion euro range for the fiscal year 2013.
