Munich, Germany, 30 June 2022 At yesterday's Annual General Meeting, the shareholders of Blue Cap AG (“Blue Cap”) approved all the draft resolutions submitted by the Supervisory Board and the Executive Board with the required consent.

The vast majority of shareholders accepted the dividend proposal of the Management Board and Supervisory Board in the amount of €0.85 per share. In light of the Xetra closing price of June 28, 2022, of €25.70, this corresponds to a dividend yield of 3.3%. With this distribution, Blue Cap AG continues its stable and sustainable dividend policy.

A new chair for the Supervisory Board
In line with the Articles of Association, all five posts on the Supervisory Board were up for election. Kirsten Lange and Freya Oehle were newly elected to the Supervisory Board, replacing Prof. Dr Peter Bräutigam and Dr Stephan Werhahn, who are no longer standing for election. Existing Supervisory Board members Dr Henning von Kottwitz, Dr. Michael Schieble and Michel Galeazzi were re-elected to the Supervisory Board. Dr Kerstin Kopp was elected as a substitute member. The Supervisory Board subsequently moved to appoint Ms Lange as Chair and Dr. Schieble as Deputy Chair.

A good start to the year in a challenging environment, and confirmation of the annual forecast

The Board of Directors of Blue Cap also confirmed its forecast. It continues to expect sales of between €305m and €325m, with an EBITDA margin (adj.) of 9–10% for 2021.

Other draft resolutions adopted by a clear majority
Around 73% of the share capital was represented at the 2022 Annual General Meeting. The other draft resolutions on the agenda were also adopted with a clear majority.
