09.12.2010 / 14:09

Hamburg, December 9, 2010 - The Ordinary General Meeting of KROMI Logistik AG was held successfully today, Thursday, in Hamburg. In addition to electing a new member of the Supervisory Board, the agenda also included a motion to disburse a dividend of EUR 0.15 per share for the first time. The shareholders approved all of the motions moved on the agenda items with a large majority.

The General Meeting elected Professor Eckart Kottkamp as a new member of the Supervisory Board. He has 17 years of experience as the chairman of managing and supervisory boards with major German engineering companies. He was also awarded an honorary Chair at the University for Applied Sciences in Hamburg in 1996. Dr. Kottkamp is succeeding Joachim Dübner on KROMI's Supervisory Board. Mr. Dübner resigned from his position on the Board as of August 31, 2010. 'We would like to thank Mr. Dübner for his constructive, close support for our company over the past few years,' commented Uwe Pfeiffer, CFO of KROMI Logistik AG, during his speech.
The proposed dividend met with great approval, and the Managing and Supervisory Boards believe that this is a positive signal for the future. Correspondingly, a dividend of EUR 0.15 per share will be paid from net retained profits. This corresponds to EUR 619 thousand. The remaining amount of EUR 1,019 thousand is to be carried forward to new account. 'KROMI has earned its salt in the economic crisis, and we are looking to the future with confidence now that the overall economy has recovered. In particular our continued internationalisation and the new customers we have acquired since the start of 2010 provide the foundations for the significant growth potential that we can perceive for the coming years - and our job is to leverage this potential,' added CFO Uwe Pfeiffer.
