Paderborn, November 30, 2006 - At its meeting on November 30, 2006, the Supervisory Board of Wincor Nixdorf AG passed a resolution approving the dividend proposal for fiscal 2005/2006 put forward by the Board of Directors. The proposal to be put forward to the AGM on January 29, 2007, is for a dividend payment of EUR2.80 per share (previous year: EUR2.10). In addition, the Board of Directors and the Supervisory Board have decided to propose to the AGM that the Company's capital stock be doubled through the issuance of new shares. Shareholders are to receive, without payment, one additional share for each share held (bonus share). This corresponds to a stock split in a ratio of 1 : 2. As part of this measure, a proportion of appropriated additional paid-in capital is to be converted into unallocated additional paid-in capital. This is to be implemented by means of a capital increase out of company reserves and/or retained earnings, followed by an ordinary reduction of capital.

The proposed dividend reaffirms Wincor Nixdorf AG's commitment to a dividend policy that allows shareholders to benefit directly from the Company's solid performance. Within this context, the aim is to pay out approximately half of the net income for the year, having adjusted for the effects of amortization of product know-how on earnings (cash net income). In total, an amount of approx. EUR46.32 million is to be paid out as dividends for fiscal 2005/2006.

The issuance of bonus shares is aimed at lowering the current price of Wincor Nixdorf shares. Reducing the share price to an investor-friendly level will make Wincor Nixdorf shares more tradeable.

The planned conversion of appropriated additional paid-in capital to unallocated, i.e. uncommitted, additional paid-in capital will cover a volume of EUR95.35 million and is to be used for the purpose of future dividend payments to shareholders from capital reserves currently committed. Under German legislation, in order to convert appropriated additional paid-in capital to unallocated capital reserves, the entity in question is obliged to perform a capital increase out of company reserves and/or retained earnings and a subsequent "ordinary reduction of capital". The proceeds from the ordinary reduction of capital are to be allocated in their entirety to uncommitted additional paid-in capital.
