In the appeal proceedings before the Düsseldorf Higher Regional Court regarding the Company’s claims for damages against its former CEO Gereon Neuhaus and its former Supervisory Board Chairman Manfred A. Wagner in connection with the “sbr” complex, the defendants withdrew their appeals shortly before today’s announcement date. Thus, the first-instance judgment of the Regional Court Duisburg dated April 29, 2019, became final and conclusive, by which Mr. Neuhaus and Mr. Wagner as co-debtors were ordered to pay damages in the amount of EUR 1,022,676.03 plus interest and the defendant Gereon Neuhaus was also ordered to pay damages in the amount of a further EUR 414,452.05 plus interest (see ad-hoc publication dated April 30, 2019).
