  • The Ordinary General Meeting will be held on August 10, 2022.
  • Six new candidates for the Supervisory Board elections: Henning Giesecke, Denis Hall, Barbara Knoflach, Hans-Hermann Lotter, Marika Lulay and José Sevilla Álvarez

Wiesbaden, June 30, 2022 Today, Aareal Bank AG has invited to its annual general meeting on August 10, 2022. The general meeting originally scheduled for May 18 was adjourned due to the acquisition of Atlantic BidCo GmbH. Due to the ongoing pandemic, Covid-19 will again be held in the form of a virtual general meeting without the physical presence of shareholders.

The agenda includes the election of six members of the Supervisory Board. The Supervisory Board proposes Henning Giesecke, Denis Hall, Barbara Knoflach, Hans-Hermann Lotter, Marika Lulay and José Sevilla Álvarez for the Supervisory Board elections. They are to replace members of the Supervisory Board of Holger Giese, Friedrich Munsberg and Dr. Ulrich Theileis, who made themselves available on short notice in the event of vacancies on the supervisory board and who, like Jana Brendel and Elisabeth Stheeman, are leaving the board at their own request. In addition, Richard Peters is resigning from his board membership after nine years because of his age. Chairman of the Supervisory Board prof. dr hab. Hermann Wagner and Sylvia Seignette remain on the supervisory board on the side of the shareholders.

Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Aareal Bank AG, prof. dr. Hermann Wagner explained: We would like to thank the departing members for their dedicated work on the Supervisory Board, and in particular the members appointed by the court at the beginning of the year for their willingness to appear on the board at short notice at the beginning of the year. Along with new candidates, we propose exceptionally suitable personalities to be elected to the Supervisory Board. They have a documented high level of competence and international experience in areas important for the Aareal Bank Group and contribute to the diversified competence profile of the Supervisory Board. At the same time, a total of six members of the Supervisory Board remain on the management board, thus ensuring the necessary continuity of the work of the Supervisory Board.

The agenda also includes the approval of the remuneration report for the financial year 2021, which is required after the amendment of the German Joint Stock Companies Act by the Act implementing the Second Shareholder Rights Directive (ARUG II), which contains detailed information on the remuneration of the Management Board and Supervisory Board for the past fiscal year. As announced, the updated Management Board remuneration system will also be put to a vote by shareholders.

The entire General Meeting on August 10, 2022 will be broadcast in audio and video format to duly registered shareholders and their proxies via the shareholders’ portal on Aareal Bank’s website (here in the Investors / General Meeting 2022 section). There you can also exercise your voting right or grant a power of attorney via electronic means of communication. In addition, shareholders have until August 8, 2022, 24:00 CEST to submit inquiries electronically.
