Annual & Special Corporate Meetings


Wien (euro adhoc) - The 25th Ordinary Annual Shareholders' Meeting of AGRANA
Beteiligungs-AG today approved an increase in the dividend payout from EUR 2.40
to EUR 3.60 per share for the financial year 2011|12. This is equivalent to a
payout ratio of around one third of the profit for the period and, therefore, is
in line with AGRANA's sustainable dividend policy. "The aim is to allow
shareholders to participate in the extremely positive development of business
activities in the past year," says AGRANA CEO, Johann Marihart.

Due to the expiry of the mandates of all eight elected members of the
Supervisory Board, the Annual Shareholders' Meeting also involved their election
and re-election. The Supervisory Board of AGRANA is now composed as follows:
Christian Konrad (Chairman), Wolfgang Heer (First Deputy Chairman), Erwin
Hameseder (Second Deputy Chairman), Jochen Fenner, Hans-Jörg Gebhard, Ernst
Karpfinger, Thomas Kirchberg, Josef Pröll and the members appointed by the
Central Staff Council, namely Thomas Buder, Stephan Savic, Peter Vymyslicky and
Gerhard Glatz.

The members of the Management Board, Johann Marihart (CEO), Fritz Gattermayer,
Walter Grausam and Thomas Kölbl, as well as the members of the Supervisory
Board, were all released from their respective responsibility for the 2011|12
financial year.  

The auditing and tax consultancy KPMG Austria AG was appointed to act as the
auditor for the 2012|13 financial year.
