  • Commerzbank raised its consolidated surplus to 1,165m euros in 2005
  • Board proposes dividend of 0.50 euros per share


A preliminary overview without audit opinion shows that Commerzbank more than tripled its consolidated surplus last year to 1,165m euros (2004: 362m euros). The after-tax return on equity improved to 12.4%. The management board has proposed a dividend of 0.50 euros per share to enable shareholders to benefit from the substantial improvement in results.

In the final quarter of 2005, the consolidated profit was 333m euros. It was thus also well above the comparable year-earlier figure (92m euros) and also above that of the previous quarter.

Note: The details of the annual financial statements will be presented at a telephone conference for analysts and at a press conference tomorrow, Wednesday. The press conference will be broadcast via internet.
