New Supervisory Board appointed by court

Unterneukirchen (Germany), June 10, 2008. The Local Court in Traunstein (Germany) informed SKW Stahl-Metallurgie Holding AG on June 10, 2008 that – in accordance with the application submitted by the Executive Board – it has appointed Dr. Friedrich Trautwein, Titus Weinheimer and Dr. Wolfgang Ziegler as new member of the company’s Supervisory Board. This means that the non-co-determined Supervisory Board of the specialty chemicals company – which is to be included in the SDAX from June 23, 2008 – again has its full number of members after none of the candidates at SKW Metallurgie’s Annual General Meeting on June 4, 2008 achieved the two-thirds majority stipulated in the Articles of Incorporation. The new Supervisory Board has a period of office through to the next General Meeting, at which the shareholders can again vote on their representatives.

In its inaugural meeting, which was held immediately after the court appointment was received, the new Supervisory Board elected Titus Weinheimer as its Chairman and Dr. Friedrich Trautwein as its Deputy Chairman.
