Advisory and Monitoring of Executive Board by the Supervisory Board

During the course of all of its meetings, the Supervisory Board attended to the business trends of the SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES AG during the business year 2018 and discussed and evaluated these developments with the Executive Board. The Executive Board regularly reported to the Supervisory Board about the key figures concerning the course of order intake, sales and earnings trends. The underlying trends were also discussed. The Executive Board informed the Supervisory Board through monthly reports on the current course of business and backlog as well as other key financial indicators. The course of the business in the year 2018 was compared with the company’s forecasts for the business year 2018. All deviations were documented and the required measures for potential adjustments were discussed with the Executive Board. Additional written and oral reports of the Executive Board, by other employees, the auditors as well as by external consultants supplemented the reporting.

The Executive Board provided the Supervisory Board with the interim reports as well as the half-year report for the business year 2018 in a timely manner ahead of the publication. The reports were presented by the Executive Board and important key figures and statements explained in detail. In particular, the Supervisory Board had the profit-and-loss statements, the liquidity situation and the trend in shareholders' equity as well as other selected balance sheet positions explained in detail. The recommendations of the Supervisory Board with regards to individual interim reports as well as to the half-year report were implemented by the Executive Board.

The development of the shareholders’ equity of the SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES Group (IFRS), the development of the shareholders’ equity of the SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES Aktiengesellschaft (HGB) as well as the liquidity situation within the Group were a topic of each of the meetings of the Supervisory Board. The liquidity of the company was documented and continuously monitored during the entire course of the year. Furthermore, the Chairman of the Supervisory Board regularly discussed the situation of the company and its future development in individual talks with the Executive Board. At all times, the other members of the Supervisory Board were informed about these meetings thereafter.

The further development of strategic positioning of the company was agreed between the Executive Board and the Supervisory Board and its implementation discussed at regular intervals. The required capital expenditure plans were analyzed and decided within the scope of the resolved strategy.
