TMCNet:  QSC founders increase shareholdings

[February 01, 2013]

QSC founders increase shareholdings

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Cologne - QSC AG's two founders, Gerd Eickers and Dr. Bernd Schlobohm, have each acquired 1,575,000 QSC shares at a price of EUR 2.25 per share over the counter, thus again strengthening their shareholdings. Eickers now holds 12.6 percent of QSC shares, Schlobohm 12.5 percent. Neither of these founders has ever sold a single share since QSC went public in the year 2000. Schlobohm has this to say about his decision to purchase additional shares: "The company is paying an attractive dividend and has set ambitious goals for itself with its Vision 2016. I am convinced that the company will be able to raise its revenues to between EUR 800 million and EUR 1 billion by 2016, while further strengthening its profitability and financial position. This opens up considerable appreciation potential for these shares." Eickers confirms: "As I see it, QSC is a solid investment." Bernd Schlobohm had founded QSC in 1997 together with Gerd Eickers, taking the company public in April 2000. After 13 years as Chief Executive Officer, he recently requested that the Supervisory Board not extend his term of office beyond the Annual Shareholders Meeting that is planned for May 29, 2013. The Supervisory Board complied with this request at its meeting on January 22, 2013. Schlobohm now has his sights set on moving to the Supervisory Board, where he would like to continue to play an active role in helping to shape QSC's strategic development. Eickers has been a member of the Supervisory Board since QSC AG went public, with the exception of one interruption: From January 2001 through December 2003, he served on the Management Board where he was responsible for the areas of customer service, order management and regulatory affairs.
