In view of the good financial situation, the shareholders approved the management’s dividend proposal of € 1.00 per dividend-bearing share. Furthermore, the Annual General Meeting approved the creation of new authorised capital and further granted the Executive Board the possibility to increase the company’s share capital by up to 7,074,370 no-par value shares of the company with a proportionate amount of the share capital of up to € 7,074,370.00 in total by issuing option and/or convertible bonds with a total nominal value of € 400 million through conversion or option rights.

In his address to the shareholders, Rüdiger Rath, CEO of the CANCOM Group, after reviewing the financial year 2022, focused in particular on the recent development of the CANCOM Group. With the acquisition of K-Businesscom, which CANCOM announced in April, the CANCOM Group is growing significantly. In addition to the significant market presence in Austria, the acquisition also opens up new market access in Switzerland and Romania. The strong expertise of K-Businesscom in the areas of cyber defence, software development and customisation as well as IoT and AI enriches the CANCOM portfolio and CANCOM solutions in the workplace environment can be offered to K-Businesscom’s customers.

CANCOM again held its 2023 Annual General Meeting in the presence of shareholders. Around 57 percent of the share capital was represented. In the run-up to the AGM, CANCOM had completed a capital increase in return for a contribution in kind amounting to around 10 percent of the share capital in connection with the acquisition of K-Businesscom, therefore the attendance rate was below the level of the previous year.
