Paderborn, November 8, 2006. At an extraordinary meeting, the Supervisory Board of Wincor Nixdorf AG, Paderborn, approved a request by Chief Executive Karl-Heinz Stiller on November 8, 2006 to release him from his post with effect from the close of the next Annual General Meeting on January 29, 2007. The current Chief Financial Officer and Deputy CEO, Eckard Heidloff, was unanimously elected to succeed him. This decision sees Wincor Nixdorf putting a younger man at the helm and, at the same time, ensuring management continuity.

At the same time as this decision, Supervisory Board Chairman Johannes Huth informed the Supervisory Board that he is also to relinquish his position at the close of the AGM on January 29, 2007. The Supervisory Board has decided to propose to the AGM that Karl-Heinz Stiller be elected as a new member of the Supervisory Board. Should he be elected by the AGM, Karl-Heinz Stiller will then put his name forward for election as Chairman of the Supervisory Board.

After the Supervisory Board meeting, Karl-Heinz Stiller cited two reasons for his departure from the Board of Directors: "As last fiscal year demonstrates, the Company is in excellent shape. In terms of organization and personnel, Wincor Nixdorf is very well poised for a great future - an ideal time for me (I’m due to turn 65 next April) to hand over the reins of the Company to younger hands."  At the end of the extraordinary meeting of the Supervisory Board Johannes Huth said, "With these top appointment resolutions the stage is set for management continuity and for continuity in terms of Wincor Nixdorf’s continued success going forward."
