"Ms. Mierzejewska has been one of the driving forces of the successful restructuring of aap's operations, which is a clear demonstration of the merits she has and will contribute to our company. She has also impressively demonstrated her sales competence, not least with regard to the US market. Together with the head of our US subsidiary, she has reorganised sales in the USA and thus made a significant contribution to being able to record dynamic sales growth this year despite COVID-19. The prolongation of Mr. Di Girolamo's and Mr. Hahn's contracts is a recognition of their contribution to aap's restructuring and repositioning from a strategic, financial and product development point of view. They contribute vast experience with all aspects of the company which is supportive to make decisions the first time right. We are convinced that the new Management Board brings the skills, experience, and perspective that aap needs. Based on the visible progress of the last months, it is now a matter of consistently continuing along the path we have chosen in order to put aap on a profitable growth path and create sustainable value for our shareholders."
