This year's Annual General Meeting of Semperit AG Holding approved an unchanged dividend to previous year of EUR 0.80 per share for 2012. This corresponds to a dividend payout of 35.6% of net profit compared to 31.7% in 2011 and is therefore in line with the growth-oriented dividend policy. The ex-dividend day is scheduled for May 7, 2013. The dividend payment date is set for May 14, 2013.

The expired Supervisory Board mandates of Dr. Michael Junghans (Deputy Chairman) and Mag. Andreas Schmidradner were extended by the Annual General Meeting. With respect to the shareholder representatives, the Supervisory Board consists of Veit Sorger (Chairman), Michael Junghans (Deputy Chairman), Walter Koppensteiner, Patrick Prügger, Andreas Schmidradner and Ingrid Wesseln.

Moreover, the Annual General Meeting of Semperit AG Holding discharged the members of the Management Board and Supervisory Board from liability with respect to their management and supervisory activities in 2012. Ernst & Young Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft m.b.H., Vienna, was again appointed to serve as the auditor of the financial statements and consolidated financial statements for 2013.

In today's constituent meeting of the Supervisory Board Veit Sorger as Chairman of the Supervisory Board and Michael Junghans as Deputy Chairman were reelected.

The Supervisory Board has extended at today's meeting the mandate of Chief Executive Officer Thomas Fahnemann by three years and one month until December 31, 2016.

Thomas Fahnemann has been working for Semperit since December 1, 2010, and was appointed to serve as Chief Executive Officer on April 14, 2011. He heads the Medical and Industrial Sector and is also responsible for Corporate Development, Human Resources, Communications, Procurement and Logistics.
