XING AG: XING AGM agrees to pay a dividend of €0.56 per share

  • Stefan Winners appointed new Chairman of the Supervisory Board
  • Anette Weber joins Supervisory Board as financial expert

Hamburg, May 24, 2013 – At today’s AGM, shareholders of Hamburg-based XING AG (ISIN DE000XNG8888) approved the dividend payment proposed by the Executive Board and Supervisory Board. Investors with shares entitled to receive a dividend will receive €0.56 per share on May 27, 2013. This equates to a total dividend payment of about €3.1 million. The AGM also appointed two new Supervisory Board members,

Stefan Winners (46) and

Anette Weber (42). This move was necessary because Dr. Neil Sunderland, the former Chairman of the Supervisory Board, and Simon Guild, member of the Supervisory Board, both notified the company in March of their decision to step down from the Supervisory Board as of the AGM. Stefan Winners is a member of the Executive Board of the Hubert Burda Media Group where he is responsible for Burda’s digital sector. He was appointed the new Chairman of the Supervisory Board at the constituent meeting of the Supervisory Board held after the AGM. Anette Weber is CFO Biopharmaceuticals & Oncology Injectables at Sandoz International and is joining the Supervisory Board as an independent financial expert. The voting results for the AGM’s other agenda items, the Executive Board presentations, and the presentation at today’s AGM will all be announced later on today and available
