The Annual General Meeting expressed its confidence in the members of the Executive Board and the Supervisory Board of APONTIS PHARMA AG for the 2021 financial year and approved all items on the agenda with large majorities. In his speech, CEO Karlheinz Gast detailed the developments in the past financial year and provided an outlook for 2022.
"We have grown profitably and significantly faster than the overall market and have consistently expanded our Single Pill portfolio. The START study demonstrates the medical and economic benefits of our Single Pills and at the same time our development pipeline offers a lot of potential for future growth. We would like to thank our shareholders for the trust they have placed in us," said Karlheinz Gast, CEO of APONTIS PHARMA AG.

In the constituent meeting of the new Supervisory Board following the Annual General Meeting, Dr. Matthias Wiedenfels was elected Chairman and Olaf Elbracht Deputy Chairman.
With Dr. Matthias Wiedenfels, a proven pharmaceutical expert is taking over as Chairman of the Supervisory Board.
