(London, 3 June 2014) The Chief Financial Officer of Tipp24 SE, Andreas Keil, is to leave the company at his own request. It is with great regret that he is resigning from Tipp24 for personal reasons. Against this backdrop, the company and Mr Keil have signed a contract termination agreement which suitably takes account of both parties' interests. It is planned, for example, that Mr Keil will continue to assist the company until 30 September 2014 in order to ensure a smooth transition.

Andreas Keil took up his position at Tipp 24 SE on 1 February 2013 and, amongst other things, was responsible for conducting a capital increase and helping steer the relocation of the company's registered office to the UK. Before joining the company, he worked for the specialist chemicals company H&R AG and the French Louis Dreyfus Group.

Andreas de Maizière, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Tipp24 SE, states: "We sincerely regret that Andreas Keil has decided to step down from the Executive Board of Tipp24 SE. Over the past 16 months, he has not only performed his duties as CFO but also displayed great expertise in steering the company's complex relocation process. On behalf of the Supervisory Board, I wish him all the best for the future."
