Leoni May Scrap Dividend Again, Frankfurter Allgemeine Reports

Leoni AG may forgo a dividend payment for a second consecutive year, Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung reported, citing Chief Executive Officer Klaus Probst.

The company is considering not to pay a dividend at all, or make a payout that is “lower than usual,” depending on its earnings, the newspaper cited the executive as saying. The company usually pays out about one-third of net income as dividends, according to the report.
