Around 1,800 shareholders today participated in the Annual General Meeting of Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) for financial year 2011/2012, which was held at the Congress Center Rosengarten in Mannheim. Just under 38 percent of Heidelberg’s share capital was represented at the event.

HEIDELBERG, GERMANY—Heidelberger Druckmaschinen has secured loan guarantees from the German government of 1.4 billion euros, or US$2.01 billion, running through 2012. According to Heidelberg CFO Dirk Kaliebe, the financing  will enable the company to "bridge the period until the difficulties in securing loans within the financial system ease."

Heidelberg, the world’s largest supplier of print media solutions to the graphic communications industry, invites Print 09 attendees to view its latest equipment, technologies and workflow solutions in a fully integrated print shop environment.

As a result of the global financial and economic crisis and the dramatic collapse in order levels in the mechanical engineering sector, the financial year 2008/2009 (April 1, 2008 to March 31, 2009) proved extremely difficult for Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg).
