Deutsche Beteiligungs (DBAG) reported FY18 net income of €33.6m, at the top of management’s guidance range, with a 7.8% dividend-adjusted NAV return for the financial year. While net income was lower than in FY17, a €1.45 per share FY18 dividend has been proposed, representing a 3.6% increase on the prior year.
