Annual General Meeting of Wacker Neuson SE approves dividend of EUR 0.60 per share; Executive Board optimistic about remainder of the year despite continued uncertainty

Munich, May 26, 2021 - At today's virtual Annual General Meeting, Wacker Neuson SE shareholders approved all items on the agenda proposed for resolution with a large majority. Votes were cast for approximately 79 percent of the share capital.

Shareholders approve dividend in the amount of EUR 0.60
The dividend payout proposed by the Executive Board and Supervisory Board in the amount of EUR 0.60 per share for the past fiscal year was approved by shareholders. In light of the unpredictability surrounding the ramifications of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Annual General Meeting had resolved to suspend the dividend payout in the previous year.

Further votes saw the Annual General Meeting approve the new remuneration system for the Executive Board with a large majority and also ratify the remuneration system for the Supervisory Board presented at the meeting. In addition, the actions of the Executive Board and Supervisory Board were approved for fiscal 2020. Ernst & Young GmbH Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft, Stuttgart, was again appointed as auditor.

Positive outlook despite major uncertainty in the supply chain
2021 got off to an extremely successful start for Wacker Neuson with the Group reporting revenue growth of 6 percent in the first quarter and a significant rise in profitability (EBIT margin: 10.0 percent; +3.0 percentage points relative to previous year). "The mood in our key target industries remains very positive and demand for our products is high," explains Kurt Helletzgruber, CEO and CFO of Wacker Neuson SE. "The situation regarding global supply chains remains challenging, however, and material shortages and rising prices for raw materials, components and transport will continue to be the biggest sources of uncertainty over the remainder of the year also for us," he adds. As before, the Group expects to generate revenue of between EUR 1,700 million and EUR 1,800 million for the year as a whole with an EBIT margin in the 8.0 to 9.5 percent range.

New Executive Board team complete from June 1
As previously announced, Dr. Karl Tragl will take on the role of new CEO and Chairman of the Executive Board of Wacker Neuson SE on June 1, 2021. Christoph Burkhard will assume the position of Chief Financial Officer (CFO) on June 1. With these appointments, the Executive Board of Wacker Neuson SE will again comprise four members. Felix Bietenbeck is Chief Operations Officer (COO) and Chief Technology Officer (CTO), Alexander Greschner remains Chief Sales Officer (CSO). Mr. Kurt Helletzgruber will return to the Supervisory Board as planned when the new members of the Executive Board join the company (see also Corporate News published on March 23, 2021 and May 5, 2021).
