Hamburg, 19 June 2017. After the first five months of the current fiscal year 2017 (1.1.-31.5.), the wine trading group Hawesko Holding AG (HAW, HAWG.DE, DE0006042708) is well on its way to achieving its full-year targets, as Chief Financial Officer Raimund Hackenberger reported at the company’s annual general shareholders’ meeting today. CEO Thorsten Hermelink gave a positive summary of his first eighteen months in office, saying that over the past year the management board had focused on improving profitability and met important prerequisites for sustainable growth in the future. “Our new team has already accomplished a great deal and initiated new developments, yet we’re only at the beginning of the tasks we’ve set for ourselves!”

In addition to the formalities, the agenda included the election of a new member of the supervisory board. Wilhelm Weil, the director of the Robert Weil Winery in the Rheingau region, is one of the most renowned German winegrowers, and will succeed Dr. Wolfgang Reitzle, who resigned his seat on the advisory board at the end of the shareholders’ meeting.

Moreover, the annual general shareholders’ meeting decided that a dividend of EUR 1.30 per share would be paid for fiscal year 2016, which is payable as of 22 June 2017. Thus, the shareholders will receive a dividend unchanged from the previous year.
