Berlin, June 17, 2009. SOLON SE (ISIN DE 0007471195) today held its Annual Shareholders' Meeting in Berlin with 44 % of the share capital represented. The meeting was attended by some 230 shareholders and bank and shareholder representatives. All resolutions regarding the eight agenda items presented for voting were adopted by a wide majority. The resolutions adopted included proposals to create new conditional capital and to authorize the Company to buy treasury shares.

The agenda also included election of a new Supervisory Board. Dr. Karl Werner, managing director of Hydraulik Nord GmbH, Schwerin, was elected to succeed Tobias Wahl, who has been Chairman of the Supervisory Board since 2006. Dr. Karl Werner's new membership on the Supervisory Board of SOLON SE is effective immediately and is to extend until cessation of the Annual Shareholders's Meeting deciding on approval of the actions of management for fiscal year 2012. Tobias Wahl ceased to hold office upon expiration of today's Annual Shareholders' Meeting.

The meeting also resolved to expand the SOLON Supervisory Board from the previous three to six members in the future. In light of the Company's dynamic growth during recent years, the Executive Board and the Supervisory Board have come to the conclusion that the Company's Supervisory Board should be expanded to allow the steadily increasing demands on members of the Supervisory Board to continue to be met in full. The newly appointed members are: Dr. Lutz Raettig, chairman of the supervisory board of Morgan Stanley Bank AG, Frankfurt/Main; Dr.-Ing. Horst Dietz, managing director of Dietz Unternehmensberatungsgesellschaft mit beschränkter Haftung, Berlin; and Jakob Leverkus, managing director of ELOS Management GmbH, Hamburg.
