STRATEC’S ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING APPROVES FURTHER DIVIDEND INCREASE: DISTRIBUTION RISES TO € 0.97 PER SHARE
Birkenfeld, May 17, 2023
Shareholders at today’s Annual General Meeting of STRATEC SE (Frankfurt: SBS; Prime Standard, SDAX) approved all agenda items submitted for resolution with clear majorities. As in the past three years, the Annual General Meeting was held on a virtual basis. In terms of its format, however, today’s meeting approximated very closely to that of an in-person Annual General Meeting: Shareholders had comprehensive rights to make statements, ask questions, and submit motions. They also had the opportunity to join the meeting live by video to speak during the general debate.
As proposed, STRATEC will be distributing a dividend of € 0.97 per share to its shareholders for the past 2022 financial year (previous year: € 0.95). The distribution total amounts to € 11.8 million and will be paid out to shareholders via their depositing banks on May 22, 2023. This represents the nineteenth consecutive increase in the dividend since payment of the first dividend in 2004.
Shareholders also approved the actions of the Board of Management and of the Supervisory Board and elected Ebner Stolz GmbH & Co. KG, Stuttgart, as auditor for the 2023 financial year. Furthermore, the Annual General Meeting adopted a new stock option plan and confirmed the amended remuneration system for Supervisory Board members. Shareholders also approved all other agenda items with the required majority.
Overall, 84.1 percent of the company’s share capital was represented at the virtual Annual General Meeting.
