Munich (Germany), 12 June 2013 – TOMORROW FOCUS AG’s 2013 AGM was held in Munich today. All the items on the agenda requiring approval were adopted by large majorities. A resolution to pay a dividend of EUR 0.06 per share met with almost unanimous approval from shareholders attending the meeting.
The shareholders present at the general meeting elected Stefan Winners and Dr Dirk Altenbeck to the company’s Supervisory Board. The election became necessary after the Supervisory Board’s former Chairperson, Dr Paul-Bernard Kallen, and another former member, Prof Dr Stefan Leberfinger, announced in April of this year that they intended to step down at the end of the annual general meeting.
Stefan Winners is member of the Management Board of Hubert Burda Media Holding where he is responsible for digital operations. Following the annual general meeting, he was elected to the position of Chairperson at the constitutive meeting of the Supervisory Board of Tomorrow Focus AG.
Dr Dirk Altenbeck holds the position of Managing Partner at the accountancy and tax consulting firm PKF Issing Faulhaber Wozar Altenbeck GmbH & Co. KG.
Resolutions to approve the actions of the Management Board and the Supervisory Board were passed by large majorities of the shareholders present at the meeting.
The shareholders also approved a resolution to pay a dividend of EUR 0.06 per qualifying notional no-par-value bearer share. As the dividend will be paid fully out of the contribution account for tax purposes, as defined in section 27 of the German Corporation Tax Act (Körperschaftssteuergesetz, KStG), there will be no deductions of capital gains tax or solidarity surcharge. In most cases, dividends paid to domestic shareholders are not subject to taxation.
In line with the pleasing record of high attendance in previous years, today’s general meeting of shareholders of TOMORROW FOCUS AG at the Haus der Bayerischen Wirtschaft in the German city of Munich brought together approximately one hundred shareholders and proxy holders representing around 79 percent of the company’s share capital with voting rights.
