On that day, the preferred shares with a nominal value of 50 German Marks (DM) will be replaced at on the stock exchanges by no-par-value shares in a ratio of 1:10. Ten no-par value shares will replace one old share; each of the former representing 2.60 Euro of the company's equity, which will then be 45.5 million Euro, in accordance with the decision at the shareholders' meeting.
