PNE AG: General meeting of shareholders approves dividend

Cuxhaven, 30 May 2024 – The general meeting of shareholders of PNE AG took place today (30 May 2024) as an event with personal attendance in Cuxhaven.

The shareholders voted overwhelmingly in favour of the use of the balance sheet profits and hence the proposal of the Board of Management and Supervisory Board to distribute a dividend of euro 0.04 and also a special dividend of euro 0.04 per eligible share.
