2005 year-end result

No dividend to be paid - new executive board members appointed - supervisory board changes

2006년 3월 28일

As announced in the ad-hoc disclosure dated December 29, 2005, book losses resulting from the IWKA Group's discontinued operations, the Ex-Cell-O Group's operating loss and one-time charges in
continuing operations weighed heavily on the 2005 year-end result and led to a substantial loss. For the 2005 financial year, IWKA Aktiengesellschaft reports a shortfall of EUR 191.4 million and the IWKA Group a shortfall of EUR 147.5 million.

No dividend to be paid

Since IWKA Aktiengesellschaft's year-end result is negative, there will be no dividend payment for the 2005 financial year.

New Executive Board members appointed

In a meeting on March 28, 2006, the Supervisory Board appointed Mr. Gerhard Wiedemann, Chairman of the board of directors of KUKA Schweissanlagen GmbH, and Mr. Bernd Liepert, Chairman of the board of directors of KUKA Roboter GmbH, as full members of the Executive Board of IWKA Aktiengesellschaft, effective April 1, 2006, in order to integrate the operational management of the IWKA Group's divisions more tightly into IWKA Aktiengesellschaft.

The Executive Board will therefore be comprised of the following persons as of April 1, 2006.

  • Mr. Wolfgang-Dietrich Hein: CEO; strategic corporate development, investor relations, press relations, group senior management and legal affairs, labor director
  • Mr. Dr. Jürgen Koch: Finance and controlling
  • Mr. Gerhard Wiedemann: Automotive division
  • Mr. Bernd Liepert: Robotics division
  • Mr. Dieter Schäfer: Packaging division

Supervisory Board changes

The Supervisory Board agreed to the Executive Board's proposal regarding the restructuring of the IWKA Group in its meeting of March 28, 2006. In order to avoid future conflicts of interest, Dr. Herbert Demel submitted his resignation as a member of the Supervisory Board effective the end of the Annual General Meeting to be held on June 1, 2006. The Supervisory Board shareholder representatives propose Prof. Dr.-Ing. Gerd Hirzinger, Director of the DLR Institute for Robotics und Mechatronics in Seefeld, to be elected as Dr. Demel's successor by the company's Annual General Meeting on June 1, 2006.
