Pursuant to the authorisation, a maximum of 10,000,000 shares may be issued in one or more tranches, corresponding to approximately 53.7% of all registered shares in the Company. Under the authorisation, the Board of Directors may issue either new shares or treasury shares. The share issue would be carried out in accordance with the shareholders’ pre-emptive subscription right, i.e. new shares would be offered for subscription by the Company’s shareholders pro rata to their existing shareholding in the Company. The Board of Directors would be authorised to decide on all other conditions of the issuance of shares. The authorisation is valid at most until the end of the next Annual General Meeting. The authorisation does not revoke prior authorisations of the Board of Directors to decide on the issuance of shares and/or option rights entitling to shares.
