Talanx share price performance
Talanx’s share price also continued to rise strongly in the year under review. The shares rose significantly compared to the 2 October 2012 issue price of EUR 18.30 and the 2012 year-end price of EUR 21.48. In May 2013, based on daily closing prices, they reached their highest level for the year at EUR 25.88. For the first half of 2013, Talanx shares performed considerably better at times than benchmark indices; however, they were unable to maintain this edge in the second half of the year, and at the end of 2013 closed at EUR 24.65. Not taking into account the dividend paid of EUR 1.05 per share, this means that the share price was around 15% higher than at the end of 2012. For shareholders who acquired their Talanx shares at the October 2012 issue price, this equates to a price increase of around 35%.
