EQS Group AG's Virtual Annual General Meeting Surprises Shareholders with a Cake Home Delivery
All resolutions accepted
Prof. Dr. Kerstin Lopatta newly elected as member of the Supervisory Board
Robert Wirth new chairman of the Supervisory Board

Munich - May 14, 2021

Today, EQS Group AG (ISIN: DE0005494165) successfully held its second fully Virtual Annual General Meeting, including the right to ask questions live. While last year, shareholders couldn't share in the delights of the cake buffet usually provided at the in-person AGM, this time, registered shareholders received a Cake Home Delivery.

EQS Group AG has plenty of experience with Virtual Annual General Meetings. This is the 10th year that shareholders have been able to attend online. The Munich-based RegTech provider was the first listed company in Germany to offer this option. And after providing a live virtual Q&A for the first time last year, this year there was a new first, the Cake Home Delivery for registered shareholders to replace the traditional cake buffet provided at the in-person AGM. Shareholder Lukas Spang from Munich was particularly surprised when in the morning of the AGM, CEO Achim Weick and the Supervisory Board member Robert Wirth personally delivered the cake to his home.

Achim Weick, CEO of EQS Group AG: "This was a lot of fun for us. With our Cake Home Delivery initiative, we wanted to express our thanks to shareholders who actively take part in the Annual General Meeting and we wished to promote more shareholder attendance".

These culinary treats were organised jointly by EQS Group AG and the Munich-based social start-up company Kuchentratsch. Kuchentratsch employs pensioners who bake and deliver cakes according to traditional grandmas' recipes.

During the Annual General Meeting, the Executive Board gave an overview of the growth prospects of EQS Group AG for Compliance Cloud products and answered numerous questions from shareholders. All resolutions were approved.

Changes to the Supervisory Board

Long-term member Peter Conzatti retired from the Supervisory Board, after having been a Board member since 2005. He has supported the company with his capital market expertise since it was founded in the year 2000. EQS Group AG is very grateful to Mr Conzatti for his work.

Peter Conzatti: "The opportunity to cooperate with the founder Achim Weick and the great team at EQS in taking the company from a small Munich-based start-up to today's global company has always been a pleasure and honour for me. We will certainly stay in contact."

Newly elected to the Supervisory Board was Prof. Dr. Kerstin Lopatta. She is a university professor for accounting, audit and sustainability at the Hamburg University. Prof. Lopatta's professional career started as a consultant for tax and audit firms. She gained international experience in Europe, the USA and Asia. With Prof. Lopatta, EQS Group AG gains an expert whose profile covers both the requirements of a Supervisory Board member and the business areas served by EQS Group AG.
