Ad-hoc Announcement: Bechtle AG suspends conversion into SE
Neckarsulm, 29 October 2021 – The Supervisory Board of Bechtle AG today approved the proposal submitted by the Executive Board to suspend the intended re-registration of the company under the corporate form of a Societas Europaea (SE), or European Company, and terminate any efforts in this regard.
Pandemic-related restrictions have made it impossible to conduct statutory in-person meetings to prepare the conversion, and there is no certainty at this time as to whether in-person meetings within the required time frames will once again be possible in the coming months.
The Executive Board may revisit its plans to convert the organisation into an SE at a later time.
Visions have multiple stakeholders. In essence, however, it is a company’s employees who transform this envisaged future into reality. Ideally, they identify with the vision’s aims and are involved in creating it.
Dr Thomas Olemotz on the meaning of the new Vision, what it consists of and the future of the company. The CEO is convinced that the new blueprint for the future will bring orientation and drive in our high-paced era.
With ELO, Bechtle digitalised invoice processing on the legacy on-prem infrastructure, linking it up to the accounting system. Ordering and contract management are currently being made into digital processes.
It’s our formula for success. Company visions don’t generally define a target margin. But since when has Bechtle followed the crowd? A 5% EBT margin provides security, as it allows us to freely shape and invest in our future.
