Earnings Release Q3 2013 (April 1 to June 30, 2013)
At its meeting today, the Supervisory Board of Siemens AG approved the establishment of a compensation committee. Regulatory and legal requirements and the importance of compensation-related topics in the company's dialogue with society were the backdrop for this step.
In the third quarter of fiscal 2013, Siemens made progress in strengthening its core business activities. Orders rose considerably on a major contract win. Total Sectors Profit declined due to charges related to the implementation of the Siemens 2014 program. Revenue declined slightly owing to a weak market environment.
Joe Kaeser (56), Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of Siemens AG since 2006, has been designated the new President and CEO of Siemens AG, effective August 1, 2013. A new CFO will be appointed very shortly. The current CEO Peter Löscher will resign his position at the end of the day today and leave the Managing Board of Siemens AG by mutual consent. These changes were unanimously approved by the Supervisory Board of Siemens AG at its meeting today.
Today I offered premature termination of my employment contract, which runs until 2017, to the Supervisory Board of Siemens AG. This difficult decision was accompanied by gratitude to the Siemens family and to those Supervisory Board members and Siemens employees who have supported me throughout my tenure, not just in the early days, but particularly in the last months when many have expressed their continued support and the wish that I remain.

Siemens no longer expects to achieve a Total Sectors profit margin of at least 12 percent by fiscal 2014, as aimed for in the Siemens 2014 company program, mainly due to lower market expectations.
