Voting Rights Notifications

Notification of voting rights pursuant to the German Securities Trading Act (WpHG)

Knowledge of changes relating to major holdings of voting rights in listed companies increases the transparency in the capital market and helps investors in making investment decisions. This is why natural and legal persons are required to notify BaFin and the listed company of the extent of their voting rights once these reach, exceed or fall short of a threshold as the result of acquisition or sale of voting shares or financial instruments or for any other reason.

These thresholds are 3%, 5%, 10%, 15%, 20%, 25%, 30%, 50% or 75%. In addition to voting shares, capital market participants must also report if they hold certain financial instruments with which shares can be acquired. In this case, however, the input threshold is 5%. The issuer and BaFin must be promptly notified of any changes in voting rights.

The investors who have notified Uniper SE that they have exceeded thresholds in accordance with Section 33 of the German Securities Trading Act are listed in the table below.
