All Candidates for Supervisory Board of SKW Stahl-Metallurgie Holding AG do not Reach Required Majority

Unterneukirchen (Germany), June 4, 2008. At the Annual General Meeting of SKW Stahl-Metallurgie Holding AG on June 4, 2008, the Supervisory Board in office until the end of the AGM (at about 58% each) did not reach the majority of two thirds required by the articles of association for reelection. Markus Zöllner, Dr. Martin Vorderwülbecke and Dr. Georg Obermeier were therefore not reelected as members of the Supervisory Board. Counter candidates proposed by shareholders (at about 2.5% each) did not meet the required two thirds majority either. SKW Stahl-Metallurgie Holding AG has therefore no current Supervisory Board.

All of the 4,422,250 shares of SKW Stahl-Metallurgie Holding AG are traded at the Stock Exchange in Frankfurt/M. at the Regulated Market (Prime Standard), ISIN DE000SKWM013 (WKN SKWM01).
