Gerresheimer AG approves dividend and elects new Supervisory Board members

A EUR 0.60 dividend per share was approved at the Annual General Meeting of Gerresheimer AG, a leading partner to the pharma and healthcare industry, which was held today in Düsseldorf. A strong set of results was reported for the 2011 financial year at the AGM, where shareholders elected six shareholder representatives to the Supervisory Board, including new members Dr. Karin Dorrepaal and Dr. Peter Noé. At its meeting today, the Supervisory Board re-elected Gerhard Schulze as its chairman.

“We achieved strong growth in revenues and profits in 2011. Our acquisition of the Brazilian market leader for pharmaceutical plastic packaging made a positive contribution to this development. After getting off to a good start in the 2012 financial year, we made a further acquisition to improve our position in the emerging markets. Neutral Glass is our first production facility in the growth market of India. We intend to drive growth in the emerging markets over the next few years and consolidate our position in Europe and North America. This will be achieved by way of both organic growth and further acquisitions,“ summarized Uwe Röhrhoff, Chief Executive Officer of Gerresheimer AG, at the Annual General Meeting.
A dividend of EUR 0.60 per share will be paid on April 27, 2012. Dividend income is tax-free for shareholders based in Germany. Last year the dividend was EUR 0.50 per share.
