Mister Spex SE, Europe's leading digitally driven omnichannel optician, announces that all resolutions were adopted as proposed by the Company’s boards at last Friday’s Annual General Meeting (“AGM”). The AGM was chaired by Supervisory Board member Birgit Kretschmer, while founder and CEO Dirk Graber as well as CFO Stephan Schulz-Gohritz were also present, delivering a presentation on the results of the past financial year.

During the 2024 Annual Shareholders’ Meeting, shareholders approved all 9 resolutions submitted by the Board of Directors. The agenda included the remuneration policies applicable to the members of the Supervisory Board and Management Board; the election of two new members to the Supervisory Board; and the re-appointment of four existing members to the Supervisory Board. All supplementary motions and countermotions submitted were rejected by the Annual General Meeting after a long, intensive discussion with a clear majority of around 75% of the votes cast.

In his speech, CEO Dirk Graber addressed the 2023 financial year and the future development of Mister Spex “After a challenging financial year 2023, we expect 2024 to be a year when we move on to our next chapter of excellence. We will continue to implement lean processes, further fostering simplicity and building on our optical expertise. Looking ahead, we want to continue to build value for our customers. In 2024 specifically, we will focus on expanding our assortment range and the services that we offer.”

Supervisory Board Membership

The AGM approved the staggered re-appointment of four existing members to the new Supervisory Board of Mister Spex being Nicola Brandolese, Birgit Kretschmer, Pietro Luigi Longo, and Nicole Srock.Stanley. Additionally, the AGM approved the election of Claus-Dietrich Lahrs, and Gil Steyaert, who succeed Peter Williams and Stuart Paterson.

Election of the new auditor

In addition, the AGM appointed Deloitte GmbH Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft as auditor for the audit of the annual financial statements and of the consolidated financial statements for the financial year 2024.

Remuneration

The Remuneration Report and the new remuneration policies for the Company’s board were approved by shareholders. This includes an adjustment of the long-term incentive program (VSOP) for the Management Board intending to give the remuneration of the Management Board an even stronger long-term focus and align it with the interests of shareholders.

Attendance rate

Attendance at last Friday’s AGM was 76% of the share capital, in comparison to 2023 when the attendance was 51%.
