BERLIN (Reuters) - German company Adler on Monday named Thomas Echelmeyer new chief financial officer and said its board of directors decided to not submit a dividend proposal to its shareholders until an audit opinion is issued.
"For reasons of prudence, the Board ... will therefore not make any forward-looking statement on the dividend until further notice," the company said in a statement.
Earlier this month, Germany's financial regulator said Adler Real Estate overstated the value of one of its projects by up to 233 million euros ($233.21 million), citing an ongoing audit of the company's financial statements.
