Shareholder Rights

Shareholders of a joint stock company are entitled to property rights and management rights. These rights are regulated in greater detail in the German Stock Corporation Act and the Articles of Association of K+S Aktiengesellschaft. Property rights result from shares in the Company's assets. They include the right to dividends and subscription rights.

The management rights include in particular the right to demand and to be given information, control rights, the voting and participation right as well as the authority to challenge resolutions adopted by the Annual General Meeting. Examples of some of these shareholder rights, which do not claim to be complete, are discussed in more detail below:

Right of the shareholder to demand information

Counterproposals of shareholders' representatives on the Supervisory Board

Minority rights

Total number of shares and voting rights

At the time the meeting is convened, the company's share capital is divided into 191,400,000 no-par value shares with the same number of voting rights.

The company holds 200,000 treasury shares at the time the meeting is convened, from which it does not derive any voting rights. The company will sell and transfer these treasury shares prior to the Annual General Meeting (mainly to employees in connection with the employee stock program), which is why the company will no longer hold any treasury shares at the time of the Annual General Meeting.
