Birkenfeld, June 8, 2020
At today's Annual General Meeting of STRATEC SE (Frankfurt: SBS; Prime Standard, SDAX) which, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, was held on a virtual basis for the first time, the company's shareholders approved all agenda items submitted for resolution with clear majorities. Overall, 81.8% of the company's share capital was represented at the virtual Annual General Meeting.
As proposed, STRATEC will be distributing a dividend of € 0.84 per share to its shareholders for the past 2019 financial year (previous year: € 0.82). The distribution total amounts to € 10.1 million and will be paid out to shareholders via their depositing banks on June 12, 2020. This represents the sixteenth consecutive increase in the dividend since payment of the first dividend in 2004.
Shareholders also approved the actions of the Board of Management and the Supervisory Board and elected Ebner Stolz GmbH & Co. KG, Stuttgart, as auditor for the 2020 financial year. The Annual General Meeting also renewed its approval for authorized and conditional capital, as well as the authorization to acquire and dispose of treasury stock.
