Mrs Nadia Thiele, Germany, informed us on 19 April 2021 pursuant to section 43 (1) WpHG thereby referring to her notification from 25 March 2021, as follows: 1. Objectives of the acquisition of voting rights (section 43 (1) sentences 1 and 3 WpHG) a) The indirect shareholding of the reporting person in Deutsche Lufthansa AG is attributed to the reporting person as a result of the acquisition of the shares of the deceased Heinz Hermann Thiele in Stella Verm?gensverwaltungs GmbH by way of inheritance.
