At today's Annual General Meeting in Pforzheim, the shareholders of STRATEC Biomedical AG (Frankfurt: SBS; Prime Standard, TecDAX) approved all of the agenda items put to the vote with large majorities in each case.

Prof. Dr. Stefanie Remmele, Landshut, Professor for medical engineering at the Hochschule Landshut - University of Applied Sciences, was newly elected to the three-member Supervisory Board and thus succeeds Prof. Dr. Hugo Hämmerle. The previous Supervisory Board Chairman, Fred K. Brückner, and the previous Deputy Supervisory Board Chairman, Wolfgang Wehmeyer, stood for re-election and were once again elected to the supervisory body by the Annual General Meeting.
At the subsequent constitutive meeting of the Supervisory Board, Fred K. Brückner was once again elected as Chairman. Wolfgang Wehmeyer was re-elected as Deputy Supervisory Board Chairman and as the independent financial expert pursuant to § 100 (5) of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG).

STRATEC is distributing a dividend of EUR 0.60 per share to its shareholders for the 2013 financial year (previous year: EUR 0.56).
