Roche's Annual General Meeting

Roche's 2008 Annual Report and financial statements have been approved by shareholders
According to the Roche Global website, Roche's Annual General Meeting, which was held in Basel on March 10, has approved all the board of Directors' proposals. The 703 shareholders in attendance, representing 90.2 per cent of a total of 160,000,000 bearer shares, approved the 2008 Annual Report and financial statements. They also authorised a +9 per cent increase in the dividend to 5.00 Swiss francs per share and non-voting equity. With this increase, the payout ratio rises to 49 per cent, which means that about half of net income will be paid out to shareholders. Franz Humer, André Hoffmann and John Irving Bell were re-elected to the board of directors for a further three-year term of office.
