(Munich, May 31, 2016) The Annual General Meeting of Wacker Neuson SE took place in Munich today. The Meeting approved a proposal by the Executive Board and the Supervisory Board to pay out a dividend in the amount of EUR 0.50 per share.

The Executive Board and Supervisory Board's proposal to pay out a dividend of EUR 0.50 per share for fiscal 2015 (previous year: EUR 0.50) was approved by shareholders.
