What is a proxy

No permanent power of attorney can be granted to the custodian bank for general meetings of companies that have issued registered shares. Companies that have issued registered shares notify their shareholders directly in writing. The custodian banks are not involved in this.

The invitation documents provide for the possibility of a transfer of voting rights and the issuing of individual instructions on voting behavior. They also contain a power of attorney form. Please enter the DSW here as an authorized representative and, if necessary, mark any individual instructions on voting behavior. Then please sign the power of attorney and send it to DSW at the following address:

German Protection Association for Securities Possession (DSW)
Regina Birkelbach
P.O. Box 35 01 63
40443 Düsseldorf

When we have received your power of attorney, we will do everything else on our own initiative. This does not involve any further effort for you.
