Herzogenaurach (dpa) - The world's second largest sporting goods manufacturer Adidas wants to pay dividends again to its shareholders.

The board decided that, Adidas announced on Monday in Herzogenaurach.

If the Supervisory Board approves, the proposal should be submitted to the Annual General Meeting on May 12th.

A dividend of EUR 3.00 per share entitled to dividends is planned.

This would distribute Adidas profits of 585 million euros to the shareholders.

In the first wave of the pandemic, Adidas had taken advantage of financial aid, which was also supported by the state-owned KfW bank.

For this reason, the board of directors and senior management decided to forego part of their remuneration, and the dividend payment was also suspended.
