With effect from the end of the Annual General Meeting, Willibald Dörflinger, Karl Fink and Albert Hochleitner will step down from the Supervisory Board at their own request. The company and the Supervisory Board express their thanks for their long-standing and competent work. Special thanks are extended to Willibald Dörflinger, who made a significant contribution to AT&S’s transformation from a printed circuit board producer to a listed, globally operating group of companies with his entrepreneurial initiative and expertise. In 1994, he participated in the management buyout of AT&S. Until 2005, he was initially a managing partner, then a member of the Management Board and finally Chairman of the Management Board. In 2005, he transferred to the Supervisory Board of AT&S. Willibald Dörflinger will continue to maintain a close relationship with the company as a core shareholder.
Lars Reger, Hermann Eul, Robert Lasshofer and Georg Hansis were elected to the Supervisory Board for the first time. After expiry of his regular term of office, Hannes Androsch was re-elected to the Supervisory Board. The members of the Supervisory Board were elected for the maximum term in accordance with the Articles of Association (i.e., until the end of the Annual General Meeting which resolves on granting discharge for the financial year 2024/25). In this context, the number of shareholder representatives in the Supervisory Board was increased by one person from eight to a total of nine members.
The Supervisory Board of AT&S is therefore composed of the following members: Hannes Androsch, Regina Prehofer, Georg Riedl, Gertrude Tumpel-Gugerell, Karin Schaupp, Lars Reger, Hermann Eul, Robert Lasshofer and Georg Hansis. In addition, the Supervisory Board also includes the members delegated by the Works Council: Wolfgang Fleck, Günter Pint, Siegfried Trauch and Günther Wölfler.
At today’s Annual General Meeting, an update and amended version of the company’s Articles of Association was also adopted. The objective of this change was, in particular, the adaptation of the Articles of Association to new developments and current market practices.
All other agenda items presented for resolution were also adopted by the shareholders represented at the Annual General Meeting.
