Lufthansa Group: “Our aim is and remains to boost profitability to a much higher level: by 2015 we want to increase our operating result by EUR1.5bn. To do so, it is vitally important to keep investing in our core business segment at the current pace. We will therefore table a proposal at the Annual General Meeting not to distribute a dividend this year. In order to ensure that the Lufthansa Group is able to pay dividends in the future, it is essential to invest all available funds in our Company today and so to contribute to making our future programme a success," Christoph Franz, chairman.
