Hannover, 7 May 2014:
The Annual General Meeting of Hannover Re today approved all proposed resolutions by a large majority.
In his address to shareholders Chief Executive Officer Ulrich Wallin took the opportunity to look back once more on the very pleasing 2013 financial year, in which the company further improved on the profit generated in the previous year. A very good underwriting result in non-life reinsurance provided the basis for new record net income of EUR 895.5 million.
The Annual General Meeting approved the proposal of the Executive Board and Supervisory Board to pay a gross dividend of EUR 3.00 per share for the 2013 financial year.
In addition, the General Meeting re-elected the existing shareholder representatives as members of the Supervisory Board of Hannover Rück SE.
The next Annual General Meeting is scheduled for 6 May 2015 in Hannover.
