Siemens Gamesa Board of Directors 300The Extraordinary General Meeting of Shareholders of Siemens Gamesa, held today in Bilbao, has approved the delisting of the company by 98.43% of the votes of the shareholders attending the General Meeting in person or by proxy. 
 
This process is part of the cash tender offer submitted by Siemens Energy in May 2022, with the aim of leveraging the companies’ joint potential.

The National Securities Market Commission (CNMV) authorized the offer in November 2022 and 77.88 percent of Siemens Gamesa’s minority shareholders tendered their shares during the acceptance period, which closed on December 13, 2022. As a result, Siemens Energy’s stake in Siemens Gamesa increased to 92.72 percent.
 
Following the approval granted today by the shareholders, the delisting of the Siemens Gamesa shares is now subject to authorization by the CNMV and the settlement of all the purchase transactions. In December 23, 2022, Siemens Energy placed a standing purchase order at €18.05 to the remaining shares of Siemens Gamesa, which will be in force until the CNMV suspends its trading.
 
Siemens Gamesa will reduce the number of members on the Board of Directors from ten to three, with the aim of simplifying the current governance structure and streamlining decision-making. Board members Francisco Belil, Gloria Hernández, Harald von Heynitz, Maria Ferraro, Rudolf Krämmer and Mariel von Schumann, who submitted their resignations in December 2022, will leave Siemens Gamesa once the company is delisted. Chairman Christian Bruch and CEO Jochen Eickholt will remain on the new board along with Anton Steiger, who serves as a non-executive proprietary director.
