Below you will find the motions for additions to the Agenda, as well as countermotions and election proposals that have been submitted to us by shareholders within the deadline. The motions and rationale in each case reflect the views of the authors as communicated to us.
Statement of the management to the minority request pursuant to Section 120 (1) sentence 2 AktG (Individual discharge of the members of the Board of Directors and Supervisory Board)
The request of Grenke Beteiligung GmbH & Co. KG must be complied with in accordance with the statutory provision of Section 120 (1) sentence 2 AktG. Pursuant to Section 120 (1) sentence 2 AktG, the discharge of the individual members of a corporate body must be voted on separately if a minority so requests whose shares together amount to one tenth of the share capital or the pro rata amount of one million euros. These requirements have been met in the present case. Accordingly, the resolutions on Agenda Item 3 (Resolution of the discharge of the members of the Board of Directors for the 2020 financial year) and Agenda Item 4 (Resolution of the discharge of the members of the Supervisory Board for the 2020 financial year) will be voted on by way of individual discharge.
Statement of the management to Agenda Item 10
The Board of Directors and the Supervisory Board point out that the Supervisory Board candidate proposed under Agenda Item 10, Mr Nils Kröber, attorney-at-law, Neuss, temporarily advised GRENKE AG in connection with the short-seller attack last autumn and that he is currently mandated as legal advisor to Mr Wolfgang Grenke.
Pursuant to Section 49 (1) no. 1 of the German Securities Trading Act (WpHG), we further announce: At the time of convening the Annual General Meeting, the total number of GRENKE AG shares amounts to 46,495,573 no-par value registered shares.
