Munich, Germany, 6 June 2024 – At yesterday’s Annual General Meeting, the shareholders of CANCOM SE elected all proposed Supervisory Board candidates to the Board for a five-year term. The Annual General Meeting confirmed Klaus Weinmann, Prof. Isabell Welpe, Dr. Swantje Schulze, Dr. Kari Kapsch and Dr. Ilias Läber. The Annual General Meeting voted in favour of Jürgen Maidl as a new member of the Supervisory Board to replace Stefan Kober, who was no longer standing for election following the end of his term of office. As an IT expert with proven expertise in major international corporations and experience from various consulting mandates, he will strengthen the Supervisory Board.

In his report to the Annual General Meeting, Rüdiger Rath, CEO of CANCOM SE, addressed the positive development of the CANCOM Group following the acquisition of the CANCOM Austria Group in the first item on the agenda and focussed on the development of CANCOM in the coming years. The CANCOM Group is set to grow in the coming years with powerful teams that are consistently developing a portfolio focused on the five core areas of Modern Workplace, Security & Networking, Cloud & Datacentre, IoT Solutions and Artificial Intelligence.

In the other items on the agenda, the Annual General Meeting approved the proposal for the appropriation of profits, granted discharge to the members of the Executive Board and Supervisory Board for the past financial year, approved the remuneration report and approved the appointment of Baker Tilly as the new auditor and auditor of the sustainability reporting for the 2024 financial year. In addition, the shareholders voted in favour of renewing the authorisation to acquire treasury shares after the authorisation from the 2022 Annual General Meeting had been exhausted with the successful 2023 share buyback programme.

At the Supervisory Board meeting following the Annual General Meeting, the Supervisory Board elected Klaus Weinmann as its Chairman and Dr. Kari Kapsch as its Deputy Chairman.

59.8 percent of the shares were represented at the Annual General Meeting, which was held in Munich. Attendance was thus slightly above the previous year’s level, with 1,669,758 treasury shares acquired by CANCOM under the 2023 share buyback programme not entitled to vote.
