“SMA is one of the highest-dividend solar stocks on the TecDax. The dividend payments also reflect the excellent results, which SMA achieved in the 2011 fiscal year in a difficult market environment,” explains Pierre-Pascal Urbon, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer of SMA Solar Technology AG. With sales of €1.7 billion and earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) of €240 million in 2011, SMA achieved the second-best results in the company’s history. The depository banks will begin dividend payments on May 23, 2012.
