Jena, Apolda, August 1, 2006 - The Stockholders' Meeting of Intershop Communications AG (Prime Standard: ISH2) today adopted the resolutions proposed by the Management Board and Supervisory Board on the approval of the actions of the Management Board, the appointment of the auditors and the authorization to buy back own shares. The resolutions were adopted by a majority of more than 95 percent.
The motion to approve the actions of the Supervisory Board was rejected by the meeting, which had a low turnout representing only 10.759% of the Company's capital stock. Only 25.856% of those present voted to approve the actions of the Supervisory Board.
"The general trend towards a decline in stockholder attendance was confirmed at this year's Intershop Stockholders' Meeting", said Dr. Jürgen Schöttler, CEO.
