Vienna, Austria, 15 March 2019 – Prior to the Annual General Meeting on May 8, 2019, the Nomination Committee of the publicly listed Semperit AG Holding addressed questions of succession planning for the Supervisory Board.

Dr Christoph Kollatz (Chairman of the Supervisory Board) and Christoph Trentini will resign from the Supervisory Board at the upcoming Annual General Meeting in order to devote themselves to other tasks in the future.

As a member of the Semperit Management Board, Dr Felix Fremerey is focused on the intensive and comprehensive restructuring of the Medical Sector. His current interim Management Board mandate shall therefore be transformed into a permanent one. Accordingly, the Supervisory Board mandate of Dr Fremerey ends, which was dormant from the moment he was appointed to the Semperit Management Board.

Birgit Noggler, Finance Expert, and Patrick Prügger, Managing Director (CFO) of B & C Industrieholding, are proposed as new members of the Supervisory Board by the Nomination Committee. Peter Edelmann was designated as the future Chairman of the Supervisory Board.

The consistent restructuring and transformation course at Semperit is not affected by the planned personnel changes in the Supervisory Board: The experienced Semperit Management Board team will continue to implement the developed path, which is supported by the Supervisory Board, with great emphasis.
