The Austrian company AvW Invest AG will increase its dividend for the 2007 financial year by 25 per cent. In concrete terms, the dividend is to rise from EUR 0.80 to EUR 1.00 per share. "Our financial services and investment sectors are currently experiencing an excellent development momentum. We have always been committed to a dividend policy that allows our shareholders to participate in the company´s success", says Wolfgang Auer von Welsbach, Chairman of AvW Invest´s Management Board.

In the past days and weeks, the AvW interest in two IT companies was also significantly increased. The share in the German IT company REALTECH (RTCG.DE) rose from 10 per cent to now 13 per cent, that in the Austrian IT company s & t (SNTS.VI) from 22 per cent to 24 per cent. A further expansion of these investments is "always an option", according to Mr. Auer of Welsbach.
