SAP SE: SAP to Enhance Capital Return in 2020

SAP to Enhance Capital Return in 2020

- Enabled by strong financial and operational performance

- EUR1.5 billion of share repurchases and/or special dividend

- To be completed by December 31, 2020  

WALLDORF, Germany - November 4, 2019

In light of SAP's strong financial performance and balance sheet, the Supervisory Board of SAP SE today approved the Executive Board's plan for enhanced capital return in 2020. Under this new program, the Company is authorized to repurchase shares and/or issue a special dividend with a combined volume of EUR1.5 billion by December 31, 2020.

This enhanced capital return will be in addition to SAP's regular dividend policy of distributing at least 40% of its IFRS profit after tax. The Supervisory Board and Executive Board are confident that SAP's strategy of investment in innovation and profitable growth, together with disciplined capital return, will maximize shareholder value for the long term.

The timing and instruments of capital returns will be determined by the Company based on its evaluation of market conditions, company performance and other factors. The issuance of any special dividend is subject to shareholder approval at the AGM.
