*Dividend of EUR 0.75 per share approved at Grammer AG's Annual General

*Amberg, July 12, 2019 *- The shareholders of Grammer AG today voted on the
motions submitted by the Executive Board and the Supervisory Board at this
year's Annual General Meeting. In particular, the distribution of a dividend
of EUR 0.75 per share was approved by a large majority. Likewise, a large
majority of the shareholders voted in favor of ratifying the actions of the
Executive Board and the Supervisory Board in 2018 and once again elected
Ernst & Young GmbH Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft, Nuremberg, as the
independent auditors for 2019. The Annual General Meeting postponed a vote
on the creation of new authorized capital with the option of partially
excluding the shareholders' preemptive subscription rights until a future
Annual General Meeting. This was in response to the request of the majority
shareholder, who, as a result of the indirect transfer of its Grammer
shareholding to Ningbo Jifeng Auto Parts Co., Ltd. is dependent on the grant
of approvals from the Chinese supervisory authorities. A resolution on the
authorization of authorized capital would interfere with the current
approval procedure, or at least delay it significantly. This would not be in
Grammer's interest in view of the effort involved.

More than 86 percent of the voting share capital was represented at Grammer
AG's Annual General Meeting, thus exceeding the previous year's record

"2018 as well as 2019 to date have been marked by major challenges facing
the entire automotive industry both at the sector and macroeconomic level.
Grammer AG has held its ground in this difficult market environment but is
also feeling the economic impact. Our organic growth in 2018 in the
automotive segment was somewhat slower than in the previous year. However,
with the distribution of the dividend, we are acknowledging the Group's
strong position and allowing shareholders to participate in the Company's
success," said Manfred Pretscher, Chief Executive Officer of Grammer AG.
