Immofinanz to Pay Dividend

Immofinanz, Eastern Europe's biggest property company by assets, plans to pay its first dividend since 2007 after profit almost quadrupled last year, beating analyst estimates. The shares rose the most in more than four months.

Immofinanz, based in Vienna, will pay a dividend of 10 cents a share for fiscal 2011, according to a statement last week.

Net income for the 12 months ending April 30 rose to 315.8 million euros ($450 million) from 80.8 million euros a year earlier, Immofinanz said. Four analysts in a Bloomberg survey made an average forecast of 290.5 million euros.

The Austrian company with projects including the GoodZone mall in Moscow and the Gerling Quarter in Cologne, Germany, scrapped its dividend for fiscal 2008 after the global credit crisis roiled real estate markets. The last dividend, in 2007, amounted to 33 cents a share.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
