Ternitz, March 8, 2005. The 2005 Annual General Meeting of Schoeller-Bleckmann Oilfield Equipment AG has adopted today the dividend for the business year 2004 amounting to 30 Eurocent plus 10 Eurocent bonus, in total 40 Eurocents per share (following 30 Eurocents for 2003). Furthermore, the Managing Board was authorised to issue up to 3 million new shares by 2010 under a capital increase (authorised capital).

Additionally, the General Meeting has adopted an amendment to the Articles of Association to the effect that, in case of a take-over bid, all shareholders shall be treated equally and a 15% discount is excluded in accordance with § 26 para. 1 of the Take-over Act (Übernahmegesetz). This amendment was proposed by the Supervisory Board, as SBO has now also formally committed itself to observe the Austrian Corporate Governance Code.

The General Meeting has also granted authorisation to the Managing Board to a period of 18 months to which the Board may implement a share buyback program with the consent of the Supervisory Board.

Comments of SBO on the Corporate Governance Code as well as all detailed resolutions and the voting results of the General Meeting 2005 are published on the company’s website:
