, Gerresheimer AG

The distribution of a dividend of EUR 1.10 per share was approved at the Annual General Meeting of Gerresheimer AG held in Duesseldorf. The MDAX-listed Group produces glass and plastic pharma and cosmetics packaging and products for safe and simple drug delivery such as insulin pens, inhalers and syringes.

“In the pharma and healthcare markets important to us, the year 2017 that we now look back on was characterized by uncertainty, above all as a result of developments in the US. I am confident that the global pharma markets will pick up again in the years ahead and that we will deliver sustained and profitable growth. It is important to us that our shareholders participate in our financial success. Accordingly, we are increasing the dividend for the seventh year in a row,” said Rainer Beaujean, Speaker of the Management Board and CFO of Gerresheimer AG, summing up at the Annual General Meeting.

The dividend has been increased by 4.8% to EUR 1.10 per dividend- entitled share. A dividend of EUR 1.05 per share was distributed in the prior year. The dividend will be paid out on April 30, 2018.

A large majority voted in favor of the resolution formally approving the acts of the Management Board and Supervisory Board in the financial year 2017. Deloitte GmbH Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft, Duesseldorf, was elected as auditor for the financial year 2018.

At the Annual General Meeting, 79.78% of the capital stock was represented.
