MANNHEIM, Germany — SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) today announced that shareholders approved all agenda items proposed by management at the company’s Annual General Meeting of Shareholders.
For fiscal 2018, SAP shareholders will receive a dividend of €1.50 per share (previous year: €1.40). The total distribution to shareholders amounts to €1.79 billion. Dividends are slated for payment on or after May 20, 2019. The shareholders approved the actions of the Executive and Supervisory Board for the 2018 fiscal year.
The Annual General Meeting held new elections after the regular expiration of the terms of all shareholder representatives on the Supervisory Board. The duration of the terms was staggered into groups of three, four and five years so that in the future not all terms of shareholder representatives would be up for re-election at the same time. All persons standing for election received the approval of the Annual General Meeting.
The shareholders’ side of the Supervisory Board thus consists of the following persons. The duration of each person’s mandate in years is provided in brackets after the name: Prof. Dr. h. c. mult. Hasso Plattner , Dr. h. c. mult. Pekka Ala-Pietilä , Aicha Evans , Diane Greene , Prof. Dr. Gesche Joost , Bernard Liautaud , Gerhard Oswald , Dr. Friederike Rotsch , Dr. Gunnar Wiedenfels .
After the election of five women to the Supervisory Board in the recently held employee representative elections, nine of the 18 Supervisory Board members are now women. The employee representatives on the Supervisory Board are Panagiotis Bissiritsas, Monika Kovachka-Dimitrova, Lars Lamadé, Margret Klein-Magar, Christine Regitz, Heike Steck, Christa Vergien-Knopf, James Wright and Ralf Zeiger.
