Today, at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of Raiffeisen Bank International AG (RBI), shareholders approved all resolutions proposed under the individual agenda items.

In his opening address, Supervisory Board Chairman Erwin Hameseder discussed, among other topics, the strategic progress made in 2019. He went on to say: “This includes, in particular, our group-wide digitalization program, the development and implementation of new technologies and the continuous expansion of the IT infrastructure. The key concern for the Supervisory Board is on the further development of data and cybersecurity.”

Johann Strobl, CEO of RBI, gave a positive summary at the AGM: “In 2018 we generated the highest level of consolidated profit in our history, facilitated by the risk costs as well as positive developments in terms of revenues. We are therefore paying a dividend of € 0.93 per share for the 2018 financial year, 50 per cent higher than the prior year.” The payment will be made to shareholders with dividend entitlement on 24 June 2019. 

The Management Board also spoke about the digitalization strategy. It is based on five pillars and is aimed at the encouragement of innovation and the development of new business models.

Martin Schaller was reelected to the Supervisory Board and his term of office was extended until the AGM resolving on the release from liability for the 2023 financial year.
