General Meeting for the past fiscal year 2002/2003 in the
Stadthalle Heidelberg today. 84 percent of Heidelberg's share
capital was represented at the event.
Heidelberg shareholders at the Annual General Meeting were invited to vote on eight items on the agenda. These included a resolution regarding the appointment of mem-bers of the Supervisory Board and changes to the Articles of Incorporation.
For the resolution regarding the appointment of members of the Supervisory Board, over 99 percent of the voters were in agreement. At the constituent meeting of the new Supervisory Board that took place after the AGM, the Finance Director of RWE AG, Dr. Klaus Sturany, 56, was elected as the new Chairman of the Heidelberg Supervisory Board.
