Annual General Meeting 2018
What dividend will be proposed for fiscal 2017?
How can I participate and exercise my voting rights at the Annual General Meeting?
Shareholders who would like to attend the Annual General Meeting or would like to exercise their voting rights have to register within a specific time at the company. They also have to provide proof of their share ownership to the company through a collective security deposit bank. Details have been published in the invitation to the Annual General Meeting.
Shareholders who request an admission ticket for the Annual General Meeting from a custodian credit institution on time, generally, do not need to do anything else. In such cases, registration and proof of share ownership shall usually be handled by the custodian credit institution.
What about proxy voting?
We afford shareholders the opportunity to be represented by the proxies appointed by the company. Such proxies must be given authorisation and instructions regarding the exercise of voting rights to this end. These proxies are obliged to cast votes in accordance with the instructions they are given.
Authorisations and instructions on how to exercise voting rights may be issued to the proxies appointed by the company before the Annual General Meeting via the internet or using the appropriate forms. Authorisations and instructions may also be given via the internet during the Annual General Meeting but no later than when the votes commence.
Further details on this procedure are described in the invitation to the Annual General Meeting. The punctual registration of the shareholder and proof of share ownership in accordance with the preceding provisions are also required in order to give authorisations to a proxy.
Where can I view motions to supplement the agenda, countermotions and candidate nominations?
Received admissible motions to supplement the agenda, countermotions and candidate nominations are published on our website along with the management's position on them. Furthermore, requests for supplements to the agenda are announced in the Bundesanzeiger (Federal Gazette), published throughout Europe and communicated to shareholders together with the convocation of the Annual General Meeting in accordance with Section 125, Paragraph 1, Sentence 3 of the German Stock Corporation Act.
