Mertec Holding GmbH, Zossen, Germany informed us on June 25, 2020 pursuant to Art. 43(1) WpHG thereby making reference to the exceedance of the threshold of 3%, 5%, 10%, 15%, 20% and 25% threshold from June 25, 2020, as follows: The underlying facts for the allocation of voting rights is neither used to achieve trading profits nor to implement strategic objectives. The reporting person does not intend to obtain further voting rights by acquisition or any other way. The reporting person does not aim to exert any particular influence on the composition of administrative, management and supervisory bodies. To the extent that the general meeting of shareholders is competent at all, the reporting person will influence the composition of administrative, management and supervisory bodies by exercising its voting rights. Futhermore, the indirect shareholder is a member of the Supervisory Board and the Personnel Committee of the Company's Supervisory Board and will also influence the composition of administrative, management and supervisory bodies in this capacity. The reporting person is not seeking any significant change in the capital structure and dividend policy of the company. The acquisition of the voting rights that led to the above-mentioned notification thresholds being exceeded is based on the attribution of voting rights. No equity capital or borrowed funds were therefore used to finance the acquisition of voting rights.
