Combined with the interim dividend of € 0.44 per share distributed in August 2012, the total dividend for 2012 amounts to € 1.00 per share. Exact intends to issue dividends at 100% of net income unless the year-end cash position drops below € 40.0 million or in case of significant acquisitions. Exact foresees significant investments in the coming years in line with our growth ambitions and will refrain from compensating for non-cash items going forward.
