Klaus Dieter Frers is also Managing Director of the company, which functions as a family holding company.   "Basically, this step does not change the shareholder structure. This also ensures continuity for paragon," explained Klaus Dieter Frers in response to questions from the capital market. The Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin) has approved the application for voting rights not to be taken into account in accordance with Section 36 No. 3 WpÜG.
