As a matter of principle, there are no restrictions on the transfer of shares of HOCHDORF Holding Ltd. In regard to the relationship with the company, shareholders are those who are recorded in the share register. A share register is kept for registered shares, and their owners are recorded therein. The company must be notified of any changes. Recording in the shareholder register requires proof of the share acquisition. Buyers of registered shares are entered in the share register as shareholders with voting rights, on request, provided that they expressly declare that they have acquired the registered shares in their own name for their own account. If the buyer is not prepared to make such a declaration, the Board of Directors may refuse the entry with voting rights. The recording limit is 5% of the voting rights.
