- Dividend of EUR 0.90 per share for the business year 2012/13
- Management Board is authorized to repurchase voestalpine’s own shares
- Articles of Incorporation to be amended
Furthermore the Annual General Meeting authorized the Management Board to repurchase voestalpine’s own shares representing no more than 10 percent of the share capital of voestalpine AG. This is a renewal of the authorization to repurchase the company’s own shares that was issued in 2010 to be used specifically, but not exclusively for the expansion of the employee shareholding scheme or to service stock option programs or convertible bonds. The authorization to repurchase voestalpine’s own shares is valid for 30 months. In this context, the Management Board of voestalpine AG was also authorized to redeem the company’s own shares up to a maximum of 10 percent of the share capital of voestalpine AG, thus reducing the share capital by the same percentage.
Additionally, the Annual General Meeting adopted a resolution to amend the Articles of Incorporation, mainly in order to adapt them to changes in legislation, particularly the Austrian Stock Corporation Amendment Act 2011.
