KGaA [ISIN DE0005558696] and Managing Director of the general partner, paragon GmbH, Klaus Dieter Frers, has informed the company today that he expects to lose his entire paragon share package soon.

Today, this party has announced that it will realize a first tranche on November 11, 2022; the remaining shares would also be up for realization at a later date. Mr Frers has announced legal actions against this.

The third party has not yet stated what its intentions are after the announced acquisition of the share package. paragon GmbH & Co. KGaA regards these events as an attempt of a hostile takeover. Its general partner paragon GmbH has declared to the company that, irrespective of the outcome of the proceedings, the sole management of the company lies on paragon GmbH and Mr Frers remains its managing director.
