Essen, 28 April 2022

At the virtual Annual General Meeting (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 2021 compared to the previous year, of €0.90 per share. The dividend will be paid out on 3 May 2022. In addition, they approved the remuneration report for members of the Executive Board and the Supervisory Board and elected Thomas Kufen, Lord Mayor of the city of Essen, to represent the shareholders on the Supervisory Board. Kufen had previously been legally appointed a member of the Supervisory Board on 18 October 2021 by the district court of Essen after Günther Schartz resigned from his office. The resolution amended on the request of Enkraft Impactive GmbH & Co. KG to include the preparation of a spin-off of RWE Power AG was rejected by a large majority.

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 by the stated deadline, all shareholders had the opportunity to submit their questions via internet by 26 April 2022, all of which were responded to at the AGM. For the first time, shareholders had the opportunity during the AGM to ask follow-up questions on the answers given.

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 388,305,915 shares were represented. That is equivalent to 57.42% of the voting share capital (presence in previous year: 62.30%).
