Puma has announced plans to distribute a one-off dividend of €12.50 per share for the financial year 2017. The group's administrative board and its managing directors intend to propose the dividend to Puma's annual general meeting on April 12. The group's chief executive, Björn Gulden, said it was fair to propose this one-off dividend to long-term and patient shareholders, who have been supportive through difficult times, given the company's current momentum and its solid balance sheet. Puma's results are to be published on Monday, Feb. 12.
