Homag Group AG / Dividend

Release of an Ad hoc announcement according to § 15 WpHG, transmitted by DGAP - a company of EquityStory AG. The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.

Schopfloch, March 30, 2009. At its meeting today to ratify the Company's annual financial statements, the supervisory board of HOMAG Group AG approved a resolution of the management board to propose a dividend of EUR 0.30 per share at the annual general meeting on May 27, 2009 (dividend for 2007: EUR 0.90).

The management board explained that this dividend proposal strikes a balance between an appropriate dividend without, however, losing sight of the current difficult market environment and the need to secure sufficient liquidity to allow room for maneuver in the event of acquisition opportunities.
