As proposed by the company's management, net profit of approximately EUR 40 million was allocated to the retained earnings and partly carried forward to new account. The actions of the members of the Executive and Supervisory Boards were fully approved for the 2010 fiscal year.

Dr. Wolfgang Bornheim, Dietmar Peter Binkowska and Dieter Keller were voted to the Supervisory Board for a further five years. In line with the recommendation of the audit committee, the General Meeting voted to appoint Ernst & Young GmbH as auditors of the annual financial statements and consolidated financial statements for the 2011 fiscal year.
