Hanover, March 31, 2023 – Chief Financial Officer Dr. Johannes Schmidt-Schultes has informed the company’s Supervisory Board that he will not be available for a contract extension at the end of his appointment period August 31, 2023. Dr Schmidt-Schultes is leaving the company as of today. He has decided to tackle new professional challenges after his work as Chief Financial Officer of the Delticom Group, Schmidt-Schultes announced.

The Supervisory Board of Delticom AG regrets this decision. “Dr. Schmidt-Schultes managed the commercial-administrative functions of the company very confidently and with exemplary commitment during a challenging and labour-intensive period,” said Karl-Otto Lang, Chairman of the Supervisory Board. “He not only managed the preparation of the annual financial statements, but also coordinated the extension of the syndicated loan agreement on the part of the company. By means of the work programme initiated by him, structural and process flows in the financial organisation were further streamlined. Dr. Schmidt-Schultes was also responsible for Delticom AG’s capital market communication in line with the principles of transparency and clarity, and enjoyed the respect and recognition of investors and analysts,” said Karl-Otto Lang.

The Supervisory Board expressly thanks Dr. Schmidt-Schultes for his work and wishes him continued professional success and personal well-being. After his departure, Dr. Schmidt-Schultes’ areas of responsibility will be taken over in part by Dr. Andreas Prüfer and in part by Mr. Philip von Grolman.
