STRATEC Biomedical AG (Frankfurt: SBS; Prime Standard) held its Annual General Meeting today in Pforzheim. The company's shareholders approved all proposals submitted for resolution with clear majorities. Around 77% of the company's share capital was represented at the meeting.
As proposed, STRATEC will be distributing a dividend of EUR 0.77 per share to its shareholders for the successful 2016 financial year (previous year: EUR 0.75 per share). This is already the thirteenth consecutive increase since dividend payments started in 2004. The distribution total amounts to EUR 9.1 million and will be paid out to shareholders via their depositing banks on June 20, 2017.
Furthermore, shareholders approved the actions of the Board of Management and the Supervisory Board and elected Rainer Baule (68), Managing Director of Baule GmbH and former CEO of Fresenius Kabi AG, to the Supervisory Board. He will succeed Wolfgang Wehmeyer, who retired from the Supervisory Board at his own request upon the conclusion of the Annual General Meeting. STRATEC's Board of Management and Supervisory Board would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Wehmeyer for the good and close working relationship over the years.
