Beta Systems Software AG reconvenes Annual General Meeting of Shareholders


Berlin, April 22, 2013 – The next regular Annual General Meeting of the shareholders of Beta Systems Software Aktiengesellschaft (BSS, ISIN DE0005224406) will take place on May 29, 2013 in Berlin. Today's convening of a new meeting was necessary as, following an intensive discussion of the substantive proposals without a resolu-tion being passed, an end was called to the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders held on March 5, 2013.

Apart from the discharge of the Management Board and the Supervisory Board for the fiscal year 2011/12 and the selection of an external auditor for the fiscal year 2012/13, items on the agenda also include supplementary elec-tions to the Supervisory Board, along with the election of substitute members. The elections are a new item on the agenda, as two former Supervisory Board members laid down their office with effect from the start of April 2013. The new members proposed by the company for the Supervisory Board are Mr. Wilhelm K. T. Zours, Heidelberg, and Prof. Dr. Heiko Schinzer, Kürnach.

Furthermore, the acting Supervisory Board elected Mr. Stephan Helmstädter to the position of Chairman of the Supervisory Board and Mr. Stefan Hillenbach as Vice Chairman from its members in its meeting on April 15, 2013.
