Nassau, 7 June 2023 – Leifheit Aktiengesellschaft (ISIN DE0006464506), one of the leading brand suppliers of household products in Europe, successfully held its 2023 Annual General Meeting today.

The Annual General Meeting adopted all agenda items by a large majority. It agreed to the proposal by the Board of Management and Supervisory Board and approved the payment of a dividend of EUR 0.70 per dividend-entitled no-par-value bearer share, resulting in a dividend yield1 of 5.2%.

In addition, the Annual General Meeting appointed Stefan De Loecker to the Leifheit AG Supervisory Board for the first time and elected him to serve as deputy chairman in the Supervisory Board meeting that immediately followed. He succeeds Karsten Schmidt, who stepped down upon conclusion of the Annual General Meeting. The Supervisory Board and Board of Management thank Mr Schmidt for his many years of service and his valuable contributions to the Supervisory Board.

“We are very happy to have successfully attracted a noted industry insider like Mr
De
Loecker to serve on the Leifheit AG Supervisory Board,” says Dr Günter Blaschke, Chairman of the Supervisory Board at Leifheit AG.“He has outstanding expertise and more than 30 years of experience in management positions in the global consumer goods sector at companies such as the Nestlé Group. In his most recent position, as CEO of Beiersdorf, he was instrumental in advancing the company's digitalisation, sustainability strategy and further internationalisation. His extensive know-how in the fields of brand-building, innovation and market launch strategies will make him an asset to our Supervisory Board.”
