Wacker Neuson SE Supervisory Board re-appointed for another term
The Annual General Meeting of Wacker Neuson SE took place in Munich today. There were a number of items on the agenda, including a vote on the appropriation of net profit for 2014 and the appointment of members to the Supervisory Board.
238 shareholders representing a total of 57,911,696 voting rights attended the Wacker Neuson SE Annual General Meeting in Munich today. Based on a share capital of 70.14 million shares, this corresponds to a 82.57-percent attendance.
The Executive Board concluded that fiscal 2014 had been a positive year, with the Group posting record figures for a number of key financial indicators. In addition to reporting a rise in revenue, Wacker Neuson also achieved its profit forecasts, which it had increased during the course of the year.
Resolutions passed at the Annual General Meeting
Wacker Neuson SE is committed to sharing its successful performance with its shareholders. The Executive Board and Supervisory Board’s proposal to pay out a dividend of EUR 0.50 per share for fiscal 2014 (previous year: EUR 0.40) was approved by shareholders. This corresponds to a distribution ratio of 38.3 percent based on Group profit for the year and is 25-percent higher than in the previous year. This ratio thus aligns with the Group's dividend policy.
The actions of the Executive Board and Supervisory Board were approved for fiscal 2014. Ernst & Young GmbH in Stuttgart was again appointed as the official auditor to review the Annual Financial Statements.
The terms of all four shareholder representatives on the Supervisory Board ended with the close of today’s Annual General Meeting. The previous members of the Supervisory Board, Mr. Kurt Helletzgruber, Mr. Hans Neunteufel, Prof. Dr. Matthias Schüppen and Mr. Ralph Wacker, were re-appointed for a further term. Prior to the meeting, the two previous employee representatives, Mr. Elvis Schwarzmair and Mr. Hans Haßlach, were also re-appointed for a further term on the Supervisory Board by resolution of the SE Works Council.
