The distribution consists of a basic dividend of 14 cents per share and an additional special distribution of 14 cents per share as recognition of the shareholders' loyalty. Based on the share closing price on August 20, 2020, this results in a dividend yield of 2.5%. CLIQ Digital wants its shareholders to participate in the success of the Company. In each of the coming fiscal years 40% of the consolidated net income (after minority interests) in accordance with IFRS is to be distributed to shareholders, provided the legal requirements for this are met.
CLIQ Digital has positioned itself as an all-in-one streaming service provider in the streaming entertainment sector and further differentiated its offering in order to continue on its growth path. The success of the already implemented strategic measures can be clearly seen in the strong business development in the first half of 2020. Gross revenue increased by 67% to EUR 47.2 million in the first half of the year, while net result before minorities almost tripled year-on-year to EUR 4.4 million. The company reported earnings per share of EUR 0.49 for the first half year of 2020, which is already far above the EUR 0.36 for the full year of 2019.
