Munich, June 12, 2019. Today, the Annual General Meeting of ProSiebenSat.1 Media SE was held in Munich. By a clear majority, the shareholders confirmed all nine members of the Supervisory Board in office. The Supervisory Board had unanimously stood for re-election.

Furthermore, the Annual General Meeting granted discharge to the Executive Board and Supervisory Board for the 2018 financial year by a clear majority.
Max Conze, CEO of ProSiebenSat.1 Media SE, commented at today’s AGM: "We have set-up a clear growth strategy that combines the power of our Entertainment brands with our equally strong Commerce platforms to build a unique business model. Therefore, we are making our Entertainment business future-fit, focusing on more local content, distributing it digitally and thus increasing our reach. We are making this reach addressable and at the same time creating additional value through the synergies between our Entertainment and Commerce business. In 2019, our full focus continues to be on generating solid organic revenue growth with double-digit growth rates at Red Arrow Studios and NuCom Group as well as a rapidly growing digital business".
