Berlin, 24 May 2017 - The Annual General Meeting of TLG IMMOBILIEN AG held yesterday supported the growth strategy chosen by the company. The shareholders in attendance adopted all of the proposals of the Management Board and Supervisory Board with significant majorities. Besides the regular matters relating to the end of the 2016 financial year, the resolutions in question concerned, for example, the raising of capital in order to finance the future growth of TLG IMMOBILIEN AG.
With the approval of 99.9997% of the voting registered capital present, the General Meeting accepted the proposal concerning the appropriation of the retained profits from the 2016 financial year of around EUR 60.8 m. In line with this resolution, a total amount of around EUR 59.3 m will be paid to the shareholders in the form of a dividend. This corresponds to EUR 0.80 per no-par value share with dividend entitlements and is around 11% higher than the dividend paid in the previous year (EUR 0.72 per no-par value share with dividend entitlements). The remaining EUR 1.5 m will be carried forward as profit. The dividend will be paid in full from the tax reserve account in the sense of § 27 of the German Corporate Tax Act (KStG). Therefore, no capital gains tax or solidarity surcharge will be deducted and no taxable income from capital assets will result according to § 20 para. 1 line 1 no. 1 of the German Income Tax Act (EStG).
With significant majorities of 99.9% and 98.8% of the voting registered capital of the company represented at the General Meeting, the actions of the members of the Management Board and Supervisory Board in the 2016 financial year were formally approved.
With a 99.8% majority of the voting registered capital present, the Berlin office of Ernst & Young Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft GmbH was once again appointed to audit the annual and consolidated financial statements for the 2017 financial year and to review the half-yearly financial report 2017.
Furthermore, Mr Frank D. Masuhr was appointed to the Supervisory Board with a majority of 98.5% of the voting registered capital present. Mr Masuhr was judicially appointed as the successor of Mr Alexander Heße who left the board of his own volition as at the General Meeting in 2016.
Additionally, the adjustment of the remuneration of the Supervisory Board was passed with a 99.96% majority of the voting registered capital present.
With majorities of 94.5% and 84.7% of the voting registered capital present, the creation of another Authorised Capital 2017 and the authorisation of the Management Board to issue convertible bonds, option bonds, participation rights and/or profit participation bonds (or combinations of these instruments), as well as the creation of a new Contingent Capital 2017, were approved.
Profit and loss transfer agreements between TLG IMMOBILIEN AG and its five subsidiaries were also upheld by unanimous resolutions.
'Once again we were able to see out a financial year with great success and strong indicators and enjoyed the unwavering confidence of our shareholders. In light of the resolutions passed yesterday, we feel more than encouraged with our decision to pursue a growth strategy', says Peter Finkbeiner, member of the Management Board of TLG IMMOBILIEN AG.
Niclas Karoff, also a member of the Management Board of TLG IMMOBILIEN AG, adds: 'We are determined to continue to expand our platform significantly in future through property acquisitions, whereby we will remain true to our standards of quality and value proposition as we always do.'
