13 Jun 2024

  • Ulf Holländer leaves the board after 24 years and moves to the supervisory board
  • New management team with Constantin Baack as CEO

Hamburg, 13 June 2024 – Hamburg, June 13, 2024 - The Annual General Meeting of the Hamburg-based asset and investment manager MPC Capital AG (Deutsche Börse, Scale, ISIN DE000A1TNWJ4) has today resolved to distribute a tax-free dividend of EUR 0.27 per share. The Annual General Meeting also approved all other proposals put forward by the management board and supervisory board with a large majority.

For Ulf Holländer, this was his last Annual General Meeting as CEO of MPC Capital AG. He has now been elected to the supervisory board by the Annual General Meeting, replacing Dr. Ottmar Gast. The supervisory board is completed by Joachim Ludwig and Dr. Axel Schroeder, who will continue to serve as chairman of the board.

In his speech, Ulf Holländer emphasized the opportunities that the energy transition and the investment needs for decarbonizing the global economy present for MPC Capital: "We see MPC Capital well positioned to further develop our business at a high level in 2024 and build on the successful financial year 2023. Based on a balance sheet with a consistently comfortable cash position and a high equity ratio, we will focus on expanding our existing business. And we will actively seize opportunities to generate sustainable and profitable growth. Due to the high demand for investments related to the energy transition, we see attractive investment opportunities – especially in the areas of maritime infrastructure and renewable energy."

With the conclusion of the Annual General Meeting, Constantin Baack takes over the position of CEO. Together with CFO Dr. Philipp Lauenstein and Christian Schwenkenbecher, who joins the management team as Chief Client Officer, he aims to lead MPC Capital into the next growth phase: "We have successfully expanded our maritime activities in recent years and see enormous development opportunities here – not least due to the necessary decarbonization of world trade. And we will continue to seize opportunities for opportunistic transactions that arise from market uncertainties or changing valuation levels. We also see great potential in the field of renewable energy, which is indispensable for the energy transition. We want to significantly expand this area and further sharpen our strategy in the future."

At the Annual General Meeting, which was once again held virtually from MPC Capital's headquarters in Hamburg, 75.5 percent of the shares were represented. The voting results of the Annual General Meeting and the CEO's speech are published on the website at www.mpc-capital.de/HV.

For shareholders subject to taxation in Germany, the dividend will be paid out from the tax contribution account (§ 27 KStG) without deduction of capital gains tax and solidarity surcharge.
