RWE Annual General Meeting approves dividend of €0.85 per share, higher than in previous year

Essen, 28 April 2021

  • Acts of the Executive Board and the Supervisory Board approved by large majority / all proposed resolutions approved by majority
  • All Supervisory Board members newly appointed


At the entirely virtual AGM held today by RWE AG, shareholders voted by a large majority in favour of the resolutions presented by the Executive Board and Supervisory Board. Among other things, the shareholders approved an increased dividend for fiscal 2020 compared to the previous year, of €0.85 per share. The dividend will be paid out on 3 May. In addition, they approved the remuneration system for members of the Executive Board and passed a resolution on the modifications to the remuneration system for members of the Supervisory Board. Item 6 on the agenda was an individual vote to elect the ten shareholder representatives on the Supervisory Board:

  • Dr. Werner Brandt, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of ProSiebenSat.1 Media SE
  • Dr. Hans Bünting, Self-employed Management Consultant
  • Ute Gerbaulet, Personally Liable Partner at Bankhaus Lampe KG
  • Prof. Dr. Ing. Dr. Ing. E.h. Hans-Peter Keitel, Self-employed Management Consultant
  • Mag. Dr. h.c. Monika Kircher, Self-employed Management Consultant
  • Günther Schartz, Administrator of the Trier-Saarburg District
  • Dr. Erhard Schipporeit, Self-employed Management Consultant
  • Ullrich Sierau, Self-employed Consultant for Business Start-ups
  • Hauke Stars, Member of various Supervisory Boards
  • Helle Valentin, General Manager Global Business Services Nordic, IBM Corporation
Five candidates were newly elected for a tenure of four years and a further five candidates for a tenure of three years. This was done to avoid the need to hold new elections for all seats on the Supervisory Board at a single Annual General Meeting, which could cause the Board to lose a substantial amount of experience. The tenure of all members previously belonging to the Supervisory Board ended today.

The entire AGM was broadcast live online. The recordings of the Executive Board and Supervisory Board speeches are available afterwards online. Once they had registered, all shareholders had the opportunity to submit their questions via internet by 26 April, all of which were responded to at the AGM. The votes were cast online and by postal vote by using a form or by granting proxy to the voting rights representatives of the company. The votes of a total of 421,281,869 shares were represented. That is equivalent to 62.30% of the voting share capital (voting turnout in previous year: 63.37%).
