AGM approves a dividend of EUR 1.49 per share Switch to registered shares as a basis for delisting agreed

Gleisdorf/Vienna, 13 April 2016

At yesterday's 17th Ordinary Annual General Meeting, as expected the Binder+Co AG shareholders took positive note of the presented financial statements for 2015. In an unsettled market environment sales revenues were raised to a new record level of EUR 95.50 million. EBIT was 38% up on the preceding year at EUR 5.93 million, although this still did not replicate the top figures of previous financial years. The order backlog of EUR 45.06 at the beginning of the year (1.1.2015: EUR 57.80 million) formed a solid basis for the continuation in 2016 of the recent sales upturn.

For the financial year expired, following approval by yesterday's AGM Binder+Co will pay its shareholders a dividend of EUR 1.49 per share (2015: EUR 0.60). 21 April 2016 has been determined as the date for the payment of EUR 0.70 for each share bearing a dividend entitlement. The ex-day in 18 April 2016. 21 April 2017 has been determined as the date for the payment of EUR 0.79 for each share bearing a dividend entitlement. The ex-day in 18 April 2017.

Following an amendment to section 4 (Share Capital and Shares) of the Binder+Co AG company articles, it was agreed to convert the current bearer shares into registered shares. This provides a basis for the planned delisting of the shares traded at present on the Third Market of the Vienna Stock Exchange.

During the elections to the Supervisory Board Kerstin Gelbmann was appointed for the first time and the mandates of Alexander Liaunig, Thomas Jost, Nikolaus Schaschl, Veit Sorger and Kurt Berger were renewed. The new board's period in office terminates with the AGM granting a discharge for the 2020 financial year. During the constituent meeting of the Supervisory Board that followed the AGM, Alexander Liaunig was appointed as board chairman and Thomas Jost as his deputy.

Management Board member Karl Grabner: "As a result of our stable dividend policy, for the past ten years we have offered our shareholders appropriate participation in company success. We have again underlined this commitment in the current year with a dividend payment of EUR 1.49 per share." He went on to add: "In future, the Binder+Co share should also remain a dividend-paying stock."

The Binder+Co Group Binder+Co is a specialist in the field of processing, environmental and packaging technology and the world market leader in the screening and glass recycling segments. The company was listed on the Vienna Stock Exchange at the end of 2006 and is now part of the Third Market in the mid market segment.
