reports that Mr Luis Rauch, Chief Financial Officer of H&R
Aktiengesellschaft, will be leaving the Executive Board of H&R
Aktiengesellschaft effective 31 August 2013 by mutual agreement with the
Company.
 
This personnel change in the Board takes place in connection with the

the Salzbergen Refinery, which will in future - as reported in the ad-hoc
statement of 25/04/2013 and the press release of 26/04/2013 - substantially

Initially acting below Executive Board level, Mr Hartwig will at first

Alexander Reinsch (39), since 1 August 2013, Mr Hartwig has been
responsible for developing H&R Group Services GmbH.  Mr Hartwig was
