(PresseBox) ( Bad Wiessee/Düsseldorf, )
The shareholders of Media-Saturn-Holding GmbH (“MSH”) – Convergenta Invest GmbH (“Convergenta”) and CECONOMY AG (“CECONOMY”) –have appointed Florian Wieser as Managing Director of MSH on the initiative of Convergenta. In addition, the shareholders approved MSH’s annual financial statements for financial years 2016/17 and 2017/18. Previously Managing Director of Finance at Media-Saturn Deutschland GmbH, Wieser is already interim head of MSH’s finance department and is now the second member of MSH’s Management Board alongside Ferran Reverter.

“We are pleased that the shareholders have jointly found a new Managing Director who will strengthen the company’s leadership. The fact that CECONOMY has agreed to our proposal shows that both shareholders are acting at eye level,” said Dr. Ralph Becker, Managing Director of Convergenta.

Jörn Werner, CEO of CECONOMY, added: “CECONOMY and Convergenta are working together constructively and in a targeted manner on the implementation of the cost and efficiency programme and on many other current issues. We agree that great efforts are still required to position MediaMarkt Saturn for the future in a fundamentally changing market environment. Our focus is on the future and not on the past. We are therefore very pleased that we were able to competently strengthen the MSH management team and that the MSH annual financial statements have now also been approved.”

The shareholders have decided to adopt the annual financial statements of MSH for the 2016/17 financial year as of 30 September 2017 and not to distribute the result, but to use the funds to strengthen the company’s equity base. Strengthening its equity capital was particularly important to Convergenta as well.

“We will support the management jointly expanded by the shareholders in future discussions with suppliers and other stakeholders. After intensive discussions with the company’s auditors, in which our arguments were also considered in detail, we also approved the adoption of the 2017/18 annual financial statements without sacrificing our legal opinion,” Dr. Ralph Becker explained.
