Today, the annual general meeting of HOMAG Group AG elected the six
shareholder representatives to the supervisory board as scheduled. The
existing member Torsten Grede was reappointed. Dr. Horst Heidsieck, Hans
Fahr, Gerhard Federer, Dr. Dieter Japs and Thomas Keller were elected for
the first time. The six employee representatives on the supervisory board,
namely Reiner Neumeister, Reinhard Seiler, Ernst Esslinger, Hannelore
Knowles, Jochen Meyer and Carmen Hettich-Günther, were reappointed by the
court of registry. At the constituent meeting of the supervisory board
following the annual general meeting, Torsten Grede was confirmed as
chairman and Reiner Neumeister as his deputy. The annual general meeting
followed the proposal of the management board and supervisory board to
carry forward the total retained profit to new account. The full session of
the annual general meeting agreed to this and the other items of the agenda
with majorities of between 63.9 and 99.9 percent. Overall, around 290
shareholders attended the annual general meeting in Freudenstadt,
representing 81.4 of capital stock.

In his speech, CEO Rolf Knoll discussed the restructuring program
implemented by HOMAG Group to reduce the cost base, among other things.
According to Knoll, the success of this program is shown by the positive
start to the year, with encouraging results for Q1 2010 and a return to the
black. He is therefore confident that HOMAG Group will achieve a low,
positive result for the year in addition to making significant gains in
terms of revenue and order intake in the current year. Knoll also referred

to the strong increase in medium-term opportunities for growth on account
of the company's broad strategic position.
