DGAP-News: VanCamel AG / Key word(s): AGM/EGM/Dividend VanCamel AG: AGM approves dividend 28.08.2014 / 16:31 --------------------------------------------------------------------- VanCamel AG: AGM approves dividend - Dividend payment of EUR 0.31 per share adopted - Old shareholders waive dividend - JÖrn Stobbe elected to Supervisory Board - BDO AG new auditor - Actions of the Management Board and Supervisory Board ratified Frankfurt, 28 August 2014 - All motions put to yesterday's Annual General Meeting of VanCamel AG (Prime Standard, ISIN DE000A1RFMM9, VC8) in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, were agreed with 100% of the vote. Above all, the shareholders present at the meeting approved the company's dividend policy. As previously announced, the established Chinese designer of men's fashions is paying a dividend of EUR 0.31 per share. However, the pre-IPO shareholders waived their right to the dividend in order to keep the funds in the company and allow it to exploit future growth opportunities. This proposal, which was put forward by Xiaming Ke as a counter-motion to the original proposal for the distribution of the profit, was adopted at the meeting. The dividend will be paid to shareholders by their custodian bank in the next few days. JÖrn Stobbe elected to Supervisory Board In addition, the AGM elected Mr. JÖrn Stobbe to the Supervisory Board for the period until the end of the AGM which votes on ratification of the actions of the corporate officers for the fiscal year ending 31 December 2017. Mr. Stobbe was previously appointed to the Supervisory Board of VanCamel AG by Cologne District Court with effect from 1 July 2014 to replace the previous Deputy Chairman Mr. Ruliang Xie, who had stepped down. However, this appointment lasted only until the end of this year's AGM. BDO AG is the new auditor The actions of the Management Board and Supervisory Board were ratified. Based on the proposal put forward by the Supervisory Board, BDO AG WirtschaftsprÜfungsgesellschaft was appointed as the new auditor for the financial statements of the company and the consolidated financial statements of the Group for 2014. Having examined several offers, the main reason for the change of auditor was BDO AG's good reputation at the capital market. The presentation given at the AGM and details of the voting results are available on the company's website at Investor Relations / Downloads.
