PRESSEINFORMATION / PRESS RELEASE

Baden-Württembergische Versorgungsanstalt für Ärzte, Zahnärzte und Tierärzte continues to be shareholder of R. STAHL

Waldenburg, 18 January 2016. R. STAHL AG has today published a notification of existing voting rights, pursuant to section 41, para. 4f of the German Securities Trading Act (WpHG) of the Versorgungsanstalt für Ärzte, Zahnärzte und Tierärzte which shows a voting share in R. STAHL AG of zero. This notification of existing voting rights is of a technical nature. The Versorgungsanstalt has informed R. STAHL AG that its shareholding has not changed.

Reason for the notification of voting rights is an amendment to the German Securities Trading Act which became effective at the end of November 2015 as a result of European law stipulations. In contrast to the previous legal situation, investors of legally independent open special funds no longer fall under the voting rights notification obligation according to sections 21 et sqq. of the German Securities Trading Act. Investors of open special funds who have to date been subject to notification obligations, are obliged to submit a notification of existing voting shares according to section 41, para. 4f of the German Securities Trading Act stating a voting share reduced to zero.

The Versorgungsanstalt has been subject to notification obligations until the aforementioned amendment to the German Securities Trading Act came into force, and has most recently notified a share of voting rights in R. STAHL AG of 5%. As the investor holds its shares via legally independent open special funds it now has to state a voting share reduced to zero in the form of a notification of existing voting rights, although it is according to its own statements economically speaking still holder of the respective shares.
