Dividend Proposal

Owing to the lower net income and upcoming investments in future projects and the development of the Technology Cluster in Zug, the Board of Directors will propose to the General Meeting of Shareholders of Metall Zug AG on April 24, 2020, that a cash dividend be distributed in the amount of CHF 1.70 gross per type A registered share (previous year: CHF 7.00) and CHF 17.00 per type B registered share (previous year: CHF 70.00).

In the current transformation phase, the Board of Directors attaches greater importance to sustainably strengthening Metall Zug than to distributing cash dividends. Resource requirements for future investments will probably mean that dividends will only increase again in the medium term.

Besides the cash dividend, in connection with the spin-off of the V-ZUG Group, shareholders of Metall Zug AG are to be allocated one registered share of V-ZUG Holding AG per type A registered share of Metall Zug AG and ten registered shares of V-ZUG Holding AG per type B registered share of Metall Zug AG as a stock dividend.
