  • Annual General Meeting follows recommendation to elect Katharina Behrends, Dr. Katrin Burkhardt, Thomas Ingelfinger and Prof. Dr. Cai-Nicolas Ziegler to the ProSiebenSat.1 Supervisory Board
  • Meeting adopts dividend proposal for financial year 2022

Unterföhring, June 30, 2023. At the Annual General Meeting of ProSiebenSat.1 Media SE today, the shareholders elected Katharina Behrends, Dr. Katrin Burkhardt, Thomas Ingelfinger and Prof. Dr. Cai-Nicolas Ziegler to the Group's Supervisory Board by a clear majority. The Annual General Meeting thus followed the candidate proposals of the Supervisory Board. A total of four seats were up for election, as the regular term of office of Dr. Marion Helmes, Vice Chairwoman of the Supervisory Board, as well as Lawrence A. Aidem and Dr. Antonella Mei-Pochtler, members of the Supervisory Board, each expired at the Annual General Meeting on June 30, 2023. In addition, a further seat has become vacant due to the transition of Bert Habets from the Supervisory Board to the Group Executive Board as of November 1, 2022. Following the meeting, the Supervisory Board elected Prof. Dr. Rolf Nonnenmacher as Vice Chairman of the Board, succeeding Dr. Marion Helmes.

Dr. Andreas Wiele, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of ProSiebenSat.1 Media SE: “On behalf of the entire Supervisory Board, I would like to thank the shareholders for their trust, and at the same time welcome our new members. Their many years of experience and very diverse qualifications will enrich the Board and support ProSiebenSat.1 in its digital transformation. I am pleased that Bert Habets, as the new CEO, had for the first time the opportunity to present to all shareholders our clear strategy with which he will lead ProSiebenSat.1 with a focus on the Entertainment business into the future. The Supervisory Board expressly supports this.”

Besides the election of the Supervisory Board members, the shareholders of ProSiebenSat.1 Media SE also agreed at today's Annual General Meeting that a significantly reduced dividend of EUR 0.05 per share will be distributed to the holders entitled to dividends for financial year 2022 (previous year: EUR 0.80). The dividend will be paid on July 5, 2023. 

Following the announcement of the convening of the Annual General Meeting, the Supervisory Board decided this year to discharge the members of the Supervisory Board individually for financial year 2022, thus fulfilling the wish of many shareholders. In this vote today, all Supervisory Board members with the exception of the former Chairman of the Supervisory Board Dr. Werner Brandt were granted discharge by a majority.

All other proposed resolutions requiring approval were adopted by a clear majority. The attendance rate at today's Annual General Meeting was c. 58% of the share capital.

The Annual General Meeting took place virtually and was broadcast live by way of video and audio transmission in full length on the shareholders’ portal for eligible shareholders and their representatives. The participants were able to exercise their rights in just the same way as at a physical meeting. This means that they could also make their contributions and ask questions virtually live.
