Siemens reported a fall in fourth-quarter profit while revenue rose, and lifted its dividend for the year on higher cash flow.

The German industrial company on Thursday reported quarterly net profit of 1.72 billion euros ($1.87 billion) from EUR2.70 billion in the year-earlier period.

Revenue grew 4% to EUR21.39 billion, while orders came in broadly flat on year at EUR21.80 billion. On a comparable basis, revenue and orders increased 10% and 6% on year, respectively.

Siemens said it exceeded EUR10 billion in free cash flow in the year and that it will propose a dividend of EUR4.70 a share from EUR4.25 a share in 2022.

The company expects revenue growth of 4% to 8% on a comparable basis and earnings per share before purchase price allocation accounting of between EUR10.40 and EUR11, excluding the effects of its investment in Siemens Energy.
