2024 Annual General Meeting of AGRANA Beteiligungs-AG

The 37^th ordinary Annual General Meeting of AGRANA Beteiligungs-AG today
voted to pay out a dividend of € 0.90 per share for the 2023|24 financial
year. This is equivalent to that of the prior year.

AGRANA therefore remains committed to a predictable, reliable and
transparent dividend policy that is geared to continuity. The dividends
are based on the result as well as on the Group’s cash flow and debt
situation, while simultaneously maintaining a solid balance sheet
structure. Moreover, AGRANA also takes current events and the anticipated
future development of business into account in its dividend policy.

The members of the Management Board, Stephan Büttner (CEO), Norbert
Harringer and Stephan Meeder, in addition to the members of the
Supervisory Board, were all relieved of their respective responsibilities
for the 2023|24 financial year.

The AGM also voted to appoint KPMG Austria GmbH Wirtschaftsprüfungs- und
Steuerberatungsgesellschaft, Vienna, to act as the auditor for the 2024|25
financial year.

During the Annual General Meeting, CEO Stephan Büttner presented the
cornerstones of the “Next Level” corporate strategy currently being
developed and explained: “Over past decades, AGRANA has acquired
outstanding expertise in the processing of agricultural raw materials and

nutritional trends, shifts in consumer behaviour, geopolitical change and
the energy transition, we are intensively working to strategically and
organisationally bundle our skills. The aim here is to optimise cost
synergies and better leverage our product-specific expertise to gain
access to additional markets and customer groups. That is why we will in
future concentrate on the community and speciality business with starch,
sugar and fruit juice concentrates as well as innovative food and beverage
solutions based on fruit preparations and natural flavourings. This will
enable us to increase our underlying profitability, better cushion market
volatility and ensure profitable growth as the keys to a successful
