3 February 2017
KUKA Aktiengesellschaft gives notice that Bernd Minning has resigned as a member of the Supervisory Board and thus also as its chairman with effect from 1 February. Dr. Hubert Lienhard, Dr. Friedhelm Loh and Professor Dr. Abel had previously also resigned from their positions on the Supervisory Board. The role of Supervisory Board chairman is being assumed by his deputy Michael Leppek until further notice.
The appointments to replace the retiring members will be made by court order in the near future. These changes are taking place in connection with the takeover by Midea. Midea wishes to be appropriately represented on the Supervisory Board.
The KUKA management team extends its sincere thanks, also on behalf of the workforce, to the retiring members of the Supervisory Board for their commitment over the past years. Particular thanks go to Bernd Minning, who has made a significant contribution to KUKA’s success since 2009.
