Around 1750 shareholders participated in the Annual General Meeting of Heidelberg for financial year 2012/2013, which was held at the Congress Centre Rosengarten in Mannheim. Around 32 percent of the company’s share capital was represented at the event. The Management Board discussed the company’s strategy and the balance sheet for the past financial year. Dr. Gerold Linzbach, CEO of the company, made his first speech to the shareholders of Heidelberg. In it, he analysed where he feels Heidelberg is at and then highlighted where the company is heading in the medium term. Approval from the company’s shareholders was needed for five of the six items on the AGM’s agenda. These included the election of Supervisory Board members. For the resolution covering the appointment of members of the Supervisory Board, the large majority of the eligible voters agreed with the proposed candidates. At the constituent meeting of the new Supervisory Board that took place after the AGM, Robert Koehler, 64, was re-elected as the Chairman of the Heidelberg Supervisory Board until 2018. Shareholders also voted on a further four resolutions with a clear majority. The Supervisory Board will comprise only twelve members in the future in accordance with the Memorandum and Articles of Association and the German Co-Determination Act (Mitbestimmungsgesetz). The members who represent shareholders were to be elected by the AGM as set out in the German Stock Corporation Act (Aktiengesetz) regulations. The six employee representatives were elected as set out in the German Co-Determination Act during a separate procedure prior to the AGM.
