Börse Express – OLG rejects lawsuit against the general meeting of Deutsche Bank

The Frankfurt Higher Regional Court has dismissed claims against the Annual General Meeting of Deutsche Bank for the 2018 financial year in the second instance. The judges overturned the decision of the lower court to the contrary in the judgment, which was not yet final, as the judiciary announced on Tuesday.

The resolutions of the shareholders from May 2019 to discharge the Chairman of the Supervisory Board Paul Achleitner, the CEO Christian Sewing and three other board members are valid again. However, the plaintiffs can still file a non-admission complaint with the Federal Court of Justice.

The court justified the decision by stating that the bank did not violate its obligation to provide information when answering shareholder questions. In many of the challenged cases, the plaintiffs had not shown that the answers given were incorrect. Some questions, some of which were not properly answered, were not sufficient to call the discharge of those responsible into question./ceb/DP/jha

Greiffenberger AG: Virtuelle ordentliche Hauptversammlung 2020; Veränderung
im Aufsichtsrat

- Hauptversammlung beschließt u.a. neues genehmigtes Kapital II

- Vorstand informiert über Erwartungen für das Gesamtjahr 2020

- Rudi Ludwig aus dem Aufsichtsrat ausgeschieden; Peter Baumgartner als
Nachfolger bestellt

Augsburg, 24. Dezember 2020 - Am 18. Dezember 2020 fand die ordentliche
Hauptversammlung der Greiffenberger AG (die "Gesellschaft") statt, die aus
Gründen des Gesundheitsschutzes für alle Beteiligten angesichts der Covid-19
Pandemie rein virtuell abgehalten werden musste. Die Aktionäre nutzten rege
die Möglichkeit der Fragestellung im Vorfeld und konnten die
Hauptversammlung über den Internetservice der Gesellschaft vollständig in
Bild und Ton verfolgen. Auf der Hauptversammlung waren 57,18 % des
eingetragenen Grundkapitals der Greiffenberger AG vertreten; für weitere
2,34 % des Grundkapitals waren der Gesellschaft Briefwahlstimmen zugegangen.

Beschlussfassungen der Hauptversammlung

Die Hauptversammlung stimmte der Schaffung eines neuen genehmigten Kapitals
II in Höhe von bis zu EUR 2.804.009,52 zu und bewilligt damit dem Vorstand
der Gesellschaft Handlungsspielraum insbesondere hinsichtlich der
Finanzierung des mittelfristig erforderlichen Umzugs der J.N. Eberle & Cie.
GmbH. Darüber hinaus beschloss die Hauptversammlung eine Satzungsänderung in
Bezug auf das System der Vergütung der Aufsichtsratsmitglieder und eine
Anpassung der Satzung im Hinblick auf neue gesetzliche Vorgaben zum Nachweis
des Anteilsbesitzes im Rahmen der Teilnahme an der Hauptversammlung. Der
Beschlussvorschlag zur Entlastung der Mitglieder des Vorstands für das
Geschäftsjahr 2019 fand nicht die erforderliche Mehrheit. Dagegen erfolgte
die Entlastung der im Geschäftsjahr 2019 amtierenden Mitglieder des
Aufsichtsrats sowie die Wahl der S&P GmbH Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft,
Augsburg, als neuer Abschlussprüfer und Konzernabschlussprüfer durch die
Hauptversammlung.

Erwartungen für das Gesamtjahr 2020 und Stand der Maßnahmen zur
Sicherstellung einer längerfristigen Anschlussfinanzierung

Neben dem Rechenschaftsbericht zum abgelaufenen Geschäftsjahr 2019
berichtete der Sprecher des Vorstands Martin Döring der Hauptversammlung
auch detailliert über den bisherigen Geschäftsverlauf und die aktuellen
Erwartungen für das Gesamtjahr 2020. Wie verschiedentlich berichtet könnte
es im Greiffenberger-Konzern im Geschäftsjahr 2020 als Folge der
Corona-Pandemie zu einem Umsatzrückgang von bis zu gut 20 % gegenüber 2019
kommen. Nach derzeitigem Stand wird der Umsatzrückgang im laufenden
Geschäftsjahr etwas geringer ausfallen als die vorgenannte Unterkante des
Prognosekorridors. Durch den zum 15. September 2020 erfolgten Verkauf der
Betriebsimmobilie der J.N. Eberle & Cie. GmbH wird es im Geschäftsjahr 2020
auf Konzernebene zu einem positiven einmaligen Sondereffekt vor Steuern in
Höhe eines unteren zweistelligen Millionenbetrages kommen. Auf Ebene der
Greiffenberger AG werden sich die positiven Einmaleffekte aus dem
Immobilienverkauf dementgegen voraussichtlich in deutlich geringerem Umfang
niederschlagen, da die Dotierung einer Gewinnrücklage in nennenswerter Höhe
auf Ebene der J.N. Eberle & Cie. GmbH als Vorkehrung für den mittelfristig
erforderlichen Umzug beabsichtigt ist.

Des Weiteren berichtete Martin Döring der Hauptversammlung über den
aktuellen Stand der Maßnahmen zur Sicherstellung einer längerfristigen
Anschlussfinanzierung in Höhe eines mittleren einstelligen
Millionenbetrages, die den als Folge der Covid-19 Pandemie im
Greiffenberger-Konzern entstehenden zusätzlichen Finanzierungsbedarf decken
soll. So rechnet die Gesellschaft damit, Entwürfe der entsprechenden
Kreditverträge von den Banken um den anstehenden Jahreswechsel herum zu
erhalten; es wird erwartet, diese Kreditverträge zeitnah unterzeichnen zu
können. Als Auszahlungsvoraussetzungen für die Anschlussfinanzierung sind
nach den Vorgaben der LfA Förderbank Bayern bestimmte, derzeit noch nicht
vorliegende Beiträge durch die Greiffenberger Holding GmbH, die
Hauptaktionärin der Greiffenberger AG, zu erbringen. Unverändert rechnet der
Vorstand damit, dass die Auszahlungsvoraussetzungen gemäß den
Kreditverträgen und dem Liquiditätsbedarf des Greiffenberger-Konzerns
rechtzeitig geschaffen werden können.

Veränderung im Aufsichtsrat

Mit Wirkung zum Ende der ordentlichen Hauptversammlung am 18. Dezember 2020
hatte Herr Rudi Ludwig sein Amt als Mitglied des Aufsichtsrats der
Gesellschaft aus persönlichen Gründen niedergelegt. Mit Herrn Peter
Baumgartner konnte der Hauptversammlung der designierte Nachfolger im
Aufsichtsrat durch den Vorsitzenden des Aufsichtsrats Marco v. Maltzan
vorgestellt werden. Peter Baumgartner ist aufgrund seiner Berufserfahrung
und seiner Branchenkenntnis besonders geeignet, ein Aufsichtsratsmandat bei
der Gesellschaft zu übernehmen. Er ist zugleich unabhängig im Sinne des
Aktiengesetzes und des Deutschen Corporate Governance Kodex. Eine Bestellung
durch die Hauptversammlung war wegen einzuhaltender aktienrechtlicher
Fristvorgaben nicht mehr rechtzeitig möglich. Dem Antrag der Gesellschaft
entsprechend wurde Herr Peter Baumgartner nunmehr gemäß § 104 Abs. 1 AktG
durch das Amtsgericht Augsburg zum Mitglied des Aufsichtsrats für den
Zeitraum bis zum Ablauf der Hauptversammlung 2021 bestellt.

Marco v. Maltzan: "Im Namen von Aufsichtsrat und Vorstand der Gesellschaft
bedanke ich mich ganz herzlich bei Herrn Ludwig, der seit 2017 die Arbeit im
Aufsichtsrat mit seiner umfassenden Industrieerfahrung bereichert hat und
auch dem Vorstand jederzeit ein wertvoller Berater und Diskussionspartner
war. Ich freue mich in diesem Zusammenhang, dass wir mit Herrn Baumgartner
erneut eine sehr kompetente und erfahrene Persönlichkeit für unser Gremium
gewinnen konnten."

Börse Express – Foreign exchange: Euro and pound are increasing slightly

The Euro and the British pound gained on Wednesday in hopes of a Brexit trade deal. One euro cost 1.2130 US dollars in the morning, a little more than the night before. The European Central Bank (ECB) set the reference rate on Tuesday afternoon at $ 1.2114.

The British pound also gained some momentum in the morning. Traders explained this with some positive news about the negotiations between Great Britain and the European Union. It’s about a trade deal after Brexit at the end of the year. At a meeting scheduled for the evening, EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson want to try to clarify the remaining disputed points.

With the corona pandemic, the Brexit negotiations are a key issue in the financial markets. Then there is monetary policy. Both the US Federal Reserve and the ECB will meet again this year. The ECB is likely to further ease its already very loose, generous monetary policy this Thursday. The Federal Reserve will decide on its course less than a week later./bgf/jkR/stk

Börse Express – Addiko Bank: AGM decided on a conditional dividend of 2.05 euros for 2019 / subject to two conditions

At today’s virtual general meeting, the shareholders of Addiko-Bank resolved a conditional dividend of EUR 2.05 per share for the 2019 financial year, as the bank announced on Friday. The payment of the dividend is dependent on two conditions.

On the one hand, the fact that before or at the latest by the publication of the 2020 annual financial statements on March 10, 2021, neither a recommendation by the ECB nor a legally prescribed prohibition on dividend distribution will prevent a payment, and that the Common Equity Tier 1 capital ratio (CET1) of Addiko Bank AG (and Addiko Group) is not below 18.6 percent after such a distribution. The payment day for the dividend is the 20th working day after both conditions have been met.

Since the disclosure in the first half of 2020, Addiko Bank AG (and the Addiko Group) have consistently aligned themselves with a capital ratio of more than 19 percent (CET1) for the end of 2020, whereby the proposed dividend for 2019 has already been deducted.

At today’s general meeting, Herbert Juranek and Frank Schwab were newly elected to the supervisory board after supervisory board chairman Hans Lotter and his deputy Henning Giesecke, as already announced, resigned at the end of the general meeting and left the supervisory board. The supervisory board consists of six shareholders, two women and four men.

Addiko Bank AG was also authorized to purchase treasury shares up to 10 percent of the share capital for a period of 30 months from the date of the resolution by the general meeting for the purpose of offering shares to employees, executives and members of the management board and supervisory board.

Börse Express – Austrian government bonds increased in late trading / yields decreased

The prices of Austrian government bonds rose in late trading on Thursday. In return, the yields fell. That of the trend-setting ten-year Austrian benchmark bond fell by 2 basis points to -0.44 percent. The yield spread over the comparable German bond was 14 basis points. The Euro-Bund-Future rose by 0.10 percent to 175.50 points.

The second lockdown will bring Austria into a slight recession over the winter, specifically in the last quarter of this year and in early 2021. This is what the economic experts at Bank Austria assume. In addition, economists expect that the lockdown in most European countries will last until the beginning of spring – i.e. until the end of the first quarter of 2021 – only partially interrupted by certain easing around Christmas or with an open retail trade.

On the data side, the consumer climate index determined by the research institute GfK for December fell to minus 6.7 points, after revised to minus 3.2 points in November (previously minus 3.1). In addition, the M3 money supply rose again in the euro area.

Yields of selected Austrian benchmark bonds:
