The meeting’s attendance amounted to 61.33 percent of voting rights. Some 390 guests attended the event and were guided through the agenda by Dr. Michael Oltmanns, the Chairman of the Supervisory Board. The vast majority of represented shareholders approved all agenda items which were voted on. As a result, a dividend of € 3.20 per share will be paid out on May 25. This corresponds to a total amount of € 31,576,508.80.
Filippo Th. Beck will succeed Wilfried Glaum, who did not run for reasons of age, in the Supervisory Board. The other Supervisory Board members were confirmed in their functions. Dr. Michael Oltmanns will remain the Supervisory Board’s head.
As already disclosed, Pfeiffer Vacuum experienced significant growth in FY 2015 and expects further growth in FY 2016.
Manfred Bender, CEO of Pfeiffer Vacuum, remains optimistic for the current year: “Order intake in the year to date has been at a similar level as in the previous year. Since some larger projects should materialize in the second half of the year, we expect FY 2016 sales of approximately 470 million euros. This should coincide with an improvement of operating profit (EBIT). We regard this as a conservative assessment which could be influenced by positive project decisions of our customers.”
Order intake in the 1st quarter of 2016 amounted to € 117.4 million.
