All three segments contributed to the success of the year 2011. Agriculture, Energy and Building Materials all exceeded their year-earlier EBIT, the company noted.

Agriculture segment, which is the driver of the outstanding overall result of the company, achieved revenues of 4.3 billion euros, up more than 21 percent from last year and EBIT climbed by around 22 percent to 78 million euros.

Further, the company noted that a proposal will be put to the annual general meeting of shareholders to pay a dividend of 60 cents per share, up 20 percent from 2010.
