censhare AG parts with CEO Dieter Reichert and CFO Stephan Wehselau

The separation takes place against the background of a different view of the company’s strategic orientation among three of the four main shareholders, and thus with the vast majority of shareholdings, as well as the Supervisory Board on the one hand, and Dieter Reichert and Stephan Wehselau on the other. “The strategic orientation was unclear, and the failures to meet targets in the last quarters were again significant and unacceptable”, Dr Anastassia Lauterbach, Chair of the Supervisory Board said, explaining the committee’s decision.

The Supervisory Board is convinced that Jürg Weber is an excellent interim solution, as he is familiar with the organization for over 10 years and has demonstrated a high level of strategic competence and leadership as Managing Director in building up the highly successful Swiss subsidiary. “I thank the Supervisory Board for the trust it has placed in me. The clear focus of our work in the coming months will be to place censhare’s core competencies at the center of our thoughts and actions.”

Like the founding shareholders, Robert Motzke and Walter Bauer, and the strategic investor, the Supervisory Board supports the company 100 percent and is firmly convinced of censhare’s successful future with its leading software solution, established customer relationships, committed employees and innovative strength. Together with the Executive Board, it will work with great confidence and commitment to shape this future.

The Supervisory Board expressly thanks Dieter Reichert and Stephan Wehselau for their many years of work. Since censhare AG was founded, Dieter Reichert in particular has worked tirelessly for the company as CEO and mastermind.

We wish both of them all the best for their future.

asknet AG Annual Shareholders Meeting Elects New Chairman, the New Supervisory Board Sets the Path for Further Growth of the Business

asknet AG held its annual shareholders meeting today, which approved with 99.9% of the vote the annual report and a number of governance changes, all in line with the acquisition of control of asknet AG by the Swiss-listed The Native SA in November 2017 and asknet’s ongoing refocus on the profitable growth strategy across all of its business units.

Following the deep restructuring and transformation of asknet into a profitable business over recent years (the company returned to profitability in 2017), Mr. Tobias Kaulfuss, the former CEO of asknet AG, was elected as Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the company, with each of Joern Matuszewski and Norman Hansen continuing on the board of asknet AG. Mr. Sergey Skatershchikov, the Chief Financial Officer of asknet AG, was appointed the Chief Executive Officer of asknet AG.

The new Supervisory Board of asknet AG convened on June 28 after the annual shareholders meeting and has approved Mr. Skatershchikov’s proposal to institute a new governance structure for asknet’s second level of management with immediate effect, with Mr. Skatershchikov to act as Chairman of the Management Board, and other management board members to include Mr. Jan Schoettelndreier (head of eCommerce Solutions business unit), Mr. Michael Baumann (head of Academics business unit), Mr. Hubert Maurer (head of finance and administration), Mr. Noel Kienzle (head of technology and data security), and Mr. Aston Fallen (head of business development and marketing).

The new management board structure is aimed at improving the quality of executive decision-making as asknet moves into the fast growth stage of its business development. It assigns greater importance to technology and data security through an expanded executive mandate for Mr. Kienzle that now covers the entire asknet AG organization, and introduces the new role of the head of business development and marketing to reflect the increased focus on sales and key accounts management in the asknet AG.

“Over the last several years asknet AG has been restructured into a very efficient and customer-centric organization and is now in a great position to take further investment and support from its majority shareholder, The Native SA, to execute on the long term profitable growth and market consolidation plans”, commented Mr. Tobias Kaulfuss, the Chairman of the Supervisory Board of asknet AG.

At the fourth annual general meeting on June 22, the Executive Board of the company will explain the results of fiscal year 2017 to the shareholders as well as provide a strategic outlook into the future.

The company’s incoming orders could be increased by 85.4% in the fiscal year 2017 compared to the previous year in the number of machines. In 2017, a total of 241 machines were ordered from SLM Solutions. This corresponds to a value of approx. 170 million euros and an increase in value by more than 111% compared to the fiscal year 2016. Dr. Axel Schulz, Chief Sales Officer, is very pleased: “In particular, the general contracts concluded for the long term give us planning security for the coming years. We will continue our course and conclude additional long-term general contracts thanks to close collaboration with customers.” The long-term strategic decision was taken in 2016 to expand production capacity in Germany for the necessary expansion of production. Construction of the new headquarters in Lübeck-Genin was started at the end of 2016, and the move into the building took place at the beginning of May 2018. Hans-Joachim Ihde, Chairperson of the Supervisory Board and major shareholder of SLM Solutions Group AG, explained: “We are a Lübeck-based company and proud of our roots in this region. We would like to express our thanks both to the city of Lübeck and the state of Schleswig-Holstein for their support in connection with the construction of our new headquarters in Lübeck.”

In October 2017, the company successfully placed a convertible loan amounting to 58.5 million in the capital market, taking advantage of an empowerment of the general meeting of April 17, 2014. The acquired funds are being invested in further growth of the company. “We are well positioned for future market development,” Uwe Bögershausen stated, Chief Financial Officer and spokesperson of the Executive Board of SLM Solutions Group AG. "At the same time, as a young company with strong growth, we want to have the necessary flexibility to respond to opportunities in the capital market in the future too and have therefore asked the shareholders to approve the issuing of new authorized capital, among other things, along with the invitation to the annual general meeting.”

The shareholders of SMA Solar Technology AG (SMA/FWB: S92) granted full discharge to the Managing Board and Supervisory Board for the 2017 fiscal year with a clear majority of over 99% and over 95% at today’s Annual General Meeting in Kassel. The remaining items on the agenda were also passed with a large majority. More than 250 shareholders attended the 2018 Annual General Meeting of SMA Solar Technology AG, and 89% of those with voting rights were present. The Annual General Meeting followed the suggestion of the Managing Board and Supervisory Board and approved the dividend payout of €0.35 per qualifying bearer share for the 2017 fiscal year.

“SMA again demonstrated its high level of flexibility in the last fiscal year,” said SMA CEO Pierre-Pascal Urbon. “In 2017, despite the regional shift in demand, SMA was able to generate annual net income at the level of the previous year. For SMA’s future success, we will further strengthen our core business with PV inverters while ramping up our activities in the field of energy management. Our shareholders supported this strategy at today’s Annual General Meeting.” In the 2017 fiscal year, SMA generated sales of €891.0 million. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) amounted to €97.3 million. Net income amounted to €30.1 million. With a payout totaling €12.1 million, the payout ratio in relation to net income amounts to 40.2%. The depository banks will begin dividend payments on May 25, 2018.

In light of the development in the first quarter of 2018 and the continued high order backlog, the SMA Managing Board confirms its sales and earnings guidance for the 2018 fiscal year, which forecasts sales of between €900 million and €1,000 million and EBITDA of between €90 million and €110 million. For the first time, EBITDA includes expenses of more than €10 million for setting up the digital business. The Managing Board estimates that depreciation and amortization will amount to approximately €50 million. The future payout rate will be between 30% and 60%.
