Talanx achieves Group net income of slightly above EUR 900 million

On the basis of consolidated, preliminary numbers for the fiscal year 2016, the Talanx Aktiengesellschaft has achieved a Group net income of slightly above EUR 900 million (2015: EUR 734 million) thereby clearly surpassing its own earnings target. On the one hand, this results from lower than expected large losses in the Group. On the other hand, special tax effects have also contributed to the improvement of the result.

Subject to the approval of the supervisory board, the dividend proposal for the fiscal year 2016 to the AGM will be increased to EUR 1.35 (2015: EUR 1.30). For 2017, Talanx raises the outlook for Group net income to around EUR 800 million from previously at least EUR 750 million.

Talanx will release its final financial results as well as its annual report on 20 March 2017.
