At the 15th Annual General Meeting of AvW Invest AG, which was held today in Krumpendorf am Wörthersee, Dr. Arnulf Komposch was elected as a member of the Supervisory Board for a term of office expiring in 2011. As is the case for all members of AvW Invest AG´s Supervisory Board, Dr. Komposch fulfils the criteria for the independence of Supervisory Board members as required by the Austrian Corporate Governance Code and is thus considered an independent holder of proxy rights.

Effective today, Ms. Maria Ott resigned from her position as a member of the Supervisory Board of AvW Invest AG. Ms. Ott, who was appointed to the Supervisory Board in September 2002, resigns from her seat on her own request.

The Annual General Meeting also resolved with a majority of more than 99,9 percent to increase the dividend by 50 per cent . Accordingly, a dividend of EUR 1.20 per share will be distributed.

Furthermore, the other items on the agenda were voted on with a majority of more than 99,9 percent. The respective voting results and further information can be found on the AvW website at www.avw.eu, Investor Relations, Annual General Meeting.
