Outlook: conversion of Supervisory Board remuneration to a purely fixed sum

At the 2013 Annual General Meeting of METRO AG, the Management Board and the Supervisory Board will propose to convert Supervisory Board remuneration to a purely fixed sum. The Supervisory Board believes that fixed compensation independent of the Company’s success is more appropriate for the monitoring and supervisory duties it performs. The amount of the proposed fixed compensation is based on the average total remuneration paid in previous years. Should the Annual General Meeting approve the recommendation, it would apply as of the financial year 2013/2014 (1 October 2013 to 30 September 2014).
