2010 Annual General Meeting: Voting results

At today’s Annual General of the listed hospital group Rhön-Klinikum AG, all agenda items were accepted by a large majority.

  • Distribution of a dividend of 0.30 euros per non-par share with dividend entitlement
  • Adoption of new remuneration scheme for the members of the Board of Management
  • Persons proposed by the Supervisory Board were elected to the Supervisory Board

*The Annual General Meeting of RHÖN-KLINIKUM AG resolved to distribute to its shareholders a dividend of 0.30 euros per non-pare share with dividend entitlement. Without the capital increase, i.e. based on the old number of shares, this proposal would represent an increase in the dividend by 5 cents to 40 cents per share compared with 2008.

*Furthermore, a new remuneration scheme was resolved for the members of the Board of Management. The remuneration scheme was published in detail in the Corporate Governance Report which was part of the 2009 Annual Report.

*On proposal of the Supervisory Board, all shareholder representatives of the Supervisory Board were re-elected by a large majority. Dr. Rüdiger Merz, managing director of Clemens Haindl Verwaltungs GmbH München, joins the Supervisory Board as a new member. He replaces Dr. Heinz Korte who retired from the Supervisory Board for age reasons.

*Agenda Item 7 was rejected because the majority of 90 per cent required for this resolution was not reached. This does not have any consequences for decisions relating to the Company's development. We respect the decisions of the owners. Nevertheless, we do point out that 84 % of votes were in favour of the resolution.
