SURTECO GROUP SE: Annual General Meeting adopts agenda items with a large majority. Tobias Pott and Jörg Wissemann are once again elected to the Supervisory Board. Management Board Contract of Andreas Pötz is extended

Munich, 7 June 2024 – At the ordinary Annual General Meeting, the Chairman of the Management Board of SURTECO GROUP SE reported to the shareholders on the development of the business in 2023 and outlined the current business situation. In particular, the high interest rates were the cause of a significant decline in demand over the past business year. Nevertheless, on the back of the acquired divisions of Omnova from 1 March 2023, sales rose to € 835 million (2022: € 748 million). Earnings before financial result and income tax (EBIT) adjusted by one-off exceptional effects such as transaction and integration costs, and provisions for personnel measures amounted to € 37.1 million in 2023 after € 40.2 million in the previous year.

SURTECO made a good start to the business year 2024 in the first quarter with sales of € 222.3 million (2023: € 205.7 million) and adjusted EBITDA (the new indicator for analyzing continuous operational development) of € 27.6 million (2023: € 19.1 million). In spite of ongoing low demand, the contributions to earnings provided by the acquired divisions and improved margins for expense items derived from the results of the Performance Plus program led to this positive launch to the year. 

The agenda items presented to the Annual General Meeting were passed with a large majority. Hence, Mr. Tobias Pott and Mr. Jörg Wissemann were re-elected as Members of the Supervisory Board. The Supervisory Board and the Management Board decided to retain liquidity within the company for this year and no proposal to pay out a dividend was submitted for a vote.

At the meeting of the Supervisory Board held after the Annual General Meeting, the Management Board Contract for the CFO of the Group, Mr. Andreas Pötz, was extended by a further five years.
