Extraordinary General Meeting of Biofrontera AG: Biofrontera Management Board supported by large majority

Leverkusen, Germany, Dec. 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Biofrontera AG (NASDAQ: BFRA; Frankfurt Stock Exchange: B8F) (the “Company”), an international biopharmaceutical company, today announced the results of the Extraordinary General Meeting held on December 19, 2019. The shareholders present represented 63.71% of the registered share capital.

The resolutions proposed by the Deutsche-Balaton Group, at whose request the Extraordinary General Meeting was held, were rejected by the shareholder meeting with a large majority. Thus, the majority of the shareholders followed the recommendations of the management on all agenda items. Although the shareholders also voted with a clear majority for the additional resolution proposal of the management to establish authorized capital, the ¾-majority required by the German Stock Corporation Act was not achieved for this agenda item.

"The rejection of the proposed resolutions of the Deutsche Balaton-Group shows once again that our shareholders are fully supporting the management of Biofrontera. In particular, the shareholder meeting rejected the repeated motion for a vote of no confidence in the Management Board, thus confirming the confidence in us, as it did at the Annual General Meeting in July this year," says CEO Prof. Dr. Hermann Lübbert. "The Executive Management Board and all employees of Biofrontera are working every day - with the outstanding support of our Supervisory Board - to continue writing Biofrontera's success story. The support of our shareholders is the prerequisite without which we could not do our work. We would like to express our sincere thanks for this".
