2017 Integrated Report – Departure into a new era

Capital measures taken

At the end of August 2017, the Federal Government, our sole owner, implemented DB AG’s planned € 1 billion capital increase to strengthen our capital base. The Budget Committee had approved the second half of the capital increase at the end of June 2017. This unblocking was subject to the condition that the pro rata resources of the LuFV II for 2016 were fully implemented in accordance with the terms of agreement.

Furthermore, as announced by the Federal Government, the dividend for the 2016 financial year paid in May 2017 was set by resolution of the Annual General Meeting of DB AG at € 600 million.
