Press release on the Annual General Meeting 2018
Venue: Hotel Hilton München Park, Am Tucherpark 7, 80538 Munich

Munich, May 15, 2018 - LUDWIG BECK AG (ISIN DE 0005199905) held its Annual General Meeting on May 15, 2018, attended by almost 500 shareholders, shareholders' representatives and guests. Short of 80% of the share capital equaling 2.9m votes were represented. All agenda items were approved by overwhelming majority votes.

Once again, the Executive Board reviewed the year 2017, in which LUDWIG BECK had come up against some difficult challenges. The Munich Fashion Group had nevertheless managed to conclude the 2017 fiscal year with a distinct increase in results as compared to the previous year and to still maintain sales at a high level.

The Group generated gross sales in the amount of EUR 173.2m (previous year: EUR 177.1m). The LUDWIG BECK segment including the online trade at www.ludwigbeck.de contributed EUR 99.0m (previous year: EUR 101.1m) and the WORMLAND segment EUR 74.2m (previous year: EUR 76.0m) to this result. The German fashion trade in general concluded the lapsed fiscal year down 2% (Source: TextilWirtschaft). Earnings before taxes (EBT) amounted to EUR 5.6m (previous year: EUR 5.2m).

"Equipped with our corporate strengths we will weather all market adversities also in 2018, and we will continue scoring with product quality, service performance and enhanced experiential value even though capricious weather conditions in the first months of the year have further complicated our endeavors", Dieter Münch, member of the Executive Board of LUDWIG BECK AG stated.

Regarding individual agenda items:

Dividend:

The Annual General Meeting approved the proposal of the Executive Board and the Supervisory Board on the appropriation of the balance sheet profit of LUDWIG BECK AG in the amount of approximately EUR 2.4m.

Other agenda items:

Fonds Research 2019: S.E.A. Asian High Yield Bond bietet attraktive Investitionschance

Auch 2019 hat die GBC AG unter der Vielzahl an Publikumsfonds neun „Fonds Champions“ herausgefiltert. Darunter auch den S.E.A. Asian High Yield Bond (ISIN: LU1138637738), der eine gute Anlagechance anbietet mit einer Strategie, die kaum reproduzierbar ist. Insbesondere vor dem Hintergrund des anhaltenden Niedrigzinsniveaus sehen wir den Anleihefonds als äußerst attraktive Investitionschance, um nachhaltige und volatilitätsarme Renditen zu erzielen. Wir haben den S.E.A. Asian High Yield Bond mit 4 von 5 Falken eingestuft.
