Weimar, 21 March 2019 – At the Annual General Meeting to be held on 30 April 2019, the Executive and Supervisory Boards of IBU-tec advanced materials AG ("IBU-tec", ISIN: DE000A0XYHT5) will propose that a dividend of EUR 0.20 per share be paid for fiscal year 2018. The dividend will consist of a EUR 0.15 ordinary dividend and EUR 0.05 special dividend, allowing for shareholders to further participate in a successful financial year characterized by positive organic and inorganic growth steps. The previous financial year saw a distributed dividend of EUR 0.13 per share. The final audited figures for 2018 fully confirmed the previously announced preliminary figures (see ad hoc of 7 March 2019) with significant increases in both sales and earnings. The 2019 forecast predicting further growth in sales and profit has also been confirmed. Current negotiations for significant and substantial new orders are underway and promising.
IBU-tec advanced materials AG is a high growth, highly specialized, development, production and service provider in the thermal processing engineering sector for the treatment of inorganic powders and granulates in rotary kilns and pulsation reactors. These treatments give the substances modified and superior material properties over their original composition. The acquisition of BNT Chemicals GmbH has further added a product portfolio specializing in organotin and wet chemistry, greatly complementing and supplementing IBU-tec's previous core services and vastly expanding both market positioning and value creation opportunities.
IBU-tec addresses worldwide megatrends such as Green Mobility (e-mobility and automotive catalysts), Green Economy (including CO2-reduced building materials, rare earths, stationary energy storage) and medical technology (including artificial joints and dentures) through its broad international customer base. IBU-tec's market success is based on its own flexible technology platform, unique patented processes and the comprehensive knowledge and know-how of its approximately 235 employees.
