The annual net profit at MLP AG rose from 38.9 million Euro to 51.5 million Euro. This represents an increase of over 32 percent. MLP Chairman and CEO Dr. Bernhard Termühlen can once again adjust his forecasts upwards for the MLP Group. The MLP AG Board of Directors will propose an increase in dividends to the Supervisory Board for the twelfth year in succession on April 6th 2001. This represents a 30 percent dividend increase for each ordinary share of 0.38 Euro and 0.40 Euro for each preference share. The excellent corporate development at MLP has continued at a high level since the beginning of 2001. With a growth rate of 30 percent, and of 50 percent in some sectors, the year has seen a very dynamic start. The company is therefore confident that the forecast income growth of 30 percent can be achieved in 2001.
