Munich, June 6, 2006. The Executive Board and the Supervisory Board of ProSiebenSat.1 Media AG decided on June 6, 2006 to propose for resolution to the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting a dividend of EUR 0.84 per preference share and EUR 0.82 per common share. In all, EUR 181.6 million or 82 percent of ProSiebenSat.1’s consolidated net income of EUR 221 million is to be distributed in dividends to shareholders. In February 2006, ProSiebenSat.1 Media AG had initially announced a dividend of EUR 0.44 per preference share and EUR 0.42 per common share. On the basis of this previous dividend proposal the pay out ratio would have been 43 percent of ProSiebenSat.1 Group's 2005 net income. Last year EUR 63 million or 48 percent of ProSiebenSat.1's 2004 Group net income of EUR 134 million were distributed in dividends. In 2005 shareholders received a dividend of EUR 0.30 per preferred share and EUR 0.28 per common share.

On the basis of ProSiebenSat.1 Media AG’s balance sheet profit for fiscal 2005 of EUR 334 million, the pay out ratio is 54 percent. Comparability to previous years, however, is limited due to EUR 89 million of earnings reserves that were released to the distributable net profit.
