The Annual Shareholders' Meeting also ratified the acts of Siemens' Managing and Supervisory Boards for fiscal 2015 and, as recommended by the Managing and Supervisory Boards, approved a dividend of €3.50 per share for fiscal 2015.
In addition, company shareholders approved the spin-off and transfer agreement between Siemens AG and Siemens Healthcare GmbH of December 2, 2015. A key aim of this agreement is to enable a transparent and source-based transfer to Siemens Healthcare GmbH of Siemens' obligations – and, in particular, of its pension obligations – arising from employment relationships with the former employees of Siemens' Healthcare business.
The proposals regarding these agenda items were approved by large majorities.
