Biofrontera AG: Major shareholders submit competing election proposals for elections to the Supervisory Board

Leverkusen, Germany (pta/02.08.2022/16:10 UTC+2)

The Management Board and the Supervisory Board of Biofrontera AG (hereinafter also referred to as the "Company") have proposed to the Annual General Meeting of Biofrontera AG convened for August 23, 2022 to reduce the seats of the Supervisory Board to five members and to change the Articles of Incorporation accordingly after one member who was elected on December 14, 2021 has prematurely resigned. The Supervisory Board has therefore not submitted a proposal for the election of a sixth member to the Annual General Meeting convened for August 23, 2022.

Maruho Deutschland GmbH and other shareholders today submitted the proposal to elect Prof. Dr. Hermann Lübbert, Leverkusen, Executive Chairman of Biofrontera Inc. as the sixth member of the Supervisory Board. Prof. Dr. Lübbert is the founder of Biofrontera AG and was the CEO of Biofrontera AG until December 13, 2021.

Previously, Deutsche Balaton AG, a company of the Deutsche Balaton Group, had added agenda item 8 (Election of a Supervisory Board member) to the agenda of the Annual General Meeting on August 23, 2022, and proposed Prof. Dr. Karin Lergenmüller, Professor of Marketing and General Business Administration at Rhein-Main University of Applied Sciences, Wiesbaden, for election as the sixth member.
