Ex-CEO and major shareholder Dr. Burkhard Wittek sues PULSION for continuation of salary payments due to alleged unlawful dismissal

Initial value of the claim: EUR 617,760

München, (PresseBox) - Former CEO Dr. Burkhard Wittek, who retired from the Board of PULSION Medical Systems AG after just six months of service, has applied to the courts for a judicial finding against the company that the cancellation of his earlier Board of Management contract was not legally effective.

The initial value of the claim of EUR 617,760 has meanwhile been reduced to EUR 128,700 by the responsible district court München I. The period of notice agreed with former CEO Dr. Burkhard Wittek was one month. The company defends itself against the claim, in particular as it wishes to avoid payments lacking legal grounds to a major shareholder at the expense of the other shareholders. A date for the hearing has not yet been announced.
