Dusseldorf, 26. June, 2019 - The Supervisory Board of MAX Automation SE (ISIN DE000A2DA58), which is listed in the Prime Standard of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, decided to sell its minority share in ESSERT GmbH during its Board meeting yesterday. Andreas Krause, Chairman of the Management Board and CFO of MAX Automation SE, explains the reasons for this sale decision: "The expectations regarding this investment have not been fulfilled.

We are focusing on sustainable profitable growth and want to further develop the MAX Automation Group yield-optimised".

ESSERT GmbH consists of two business units: "Advanced Robotics" and "Digital Processes". The current shareholders of the company have agreed that Christopher Essert will develop the company according to his desired focus.
