Essen, 14 June 2019: At the Annual General Meeting of Instone Real Estate Group AG held yesterday in Essen, the shareholders voted by a large majority in favour of the proposals put forward by the management board and supervisory board.
In particular, the two members of the supervisory board, Thomas Hegel and Dietmar P. Binkowska, were elected to the supervisory board by the Annual General Meeting. After their predecessors Stefan Mohr and Richard Wartenberg resigned from their supervisory board mandates as of 31 December 2018, Thomas Hegel and Dietmar P. Binkowska were appointed members of the supervisory board by the Local Court Essen (Amtsgericht Essen) at the request of the board of management with effect of 12 April 2019. The Annual General Meeting has now elected Mr. Hegel and Mr. P. Binkowska as members of the supervisory board for the period up to the end of the Annual General Meeting which resolves on the discharge of the members of the supervisory board for the 2021 financial year.
Furthermore, the members of the management board and the supervisory board were discharged by a large majority for their term in office in the 2018 financial year. Deloitte GmbH Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft, Düsseldorf, was appointed auditor and consolidated group auditor for the 2019 financial year.

These items were also approved by a large majority.
"The management board and supervisory board would like to thank the shareholders for their confidence, which was expressed in their broad approval of the proposed resolutions. We look forward to continuing our excellent cooperation with Mr. Thomas Hegel and Mr. Dietmar P. Binkowska as members of the supervisory board. The additional resolutions from today have increased the flexibility for future financing and created the conditions for simplifying group management and optimizing our tax structure – in other words, they have strengthened our planned growth," comments Kruno Crepulja, CEO of Instone Real Estate.
