The fixed remuneration paid to individual Supervisory Board members is €85,000, in accordance with the Articles of Association. In addition, Supervisory Board members are reimbursed for cash expenses. The Chairman of the Supervisory Board receives two-and-a-half-times the amount, while his deputy, as laid out in § 12 (1) sentence 1 of the Articles of Association receives one-and-a-half times this amount. Members of the Presiding, Audit, Personnel and Finance Committees also receive additional compensation for their work in these committees. If a member of the Supervisory Board simultaneously holds several offices for which increased remuneration is granted, he or she shall only receive the remuneration for the highest-paying office. More detailed information on the remuneration of our Supervisory Board members are published in the notes to the consolidated financial statements in the Annual Report.
In the current Annual Report we also published the individual remuneration of the Supervisory Board members, as recommended by the German Corporate Governance Code. The publication is made in the remuneration report as part of the Annual Report.
