Dividend statement

SUSE currently does not intend to pay any dividends for the foreseeable future and intends to continue to invest in its business. However, the company will periodically review its dividend policy and will consider paying dividends if appropriate. Any future determination to pay dividends will be made in accordance with applicable laws, and will depend upon, among other factors, the company’s results of operations, financial condition, contractual restrictions and capital requirements. SUSE’s future ability to pay dividends may be limited by the terms of any existing and future debt or preferred securities.
