Shareholder Structure

The chart shows the company’s shareholdings based on the data it collects itself and/or based on the voting rights pursuant to Sections 33 and 34 of the German Securities Trading Act (WpHG) as notified by the shareholders in relation to the current share capital. It is important to note that the number of voting rights reported could have changed within the respective thresholds without triggering an obligation to notify the company.

Major Shareholders (as of December 31, 2023)

Based on the German stock exchange’s definition of free float, only the interest held by Norges Bank (Ministry of Finance on behalf of Norway) does not count toward the free float.
