Dealings subject to reporting requirements
Section 15a of the German Securities Trading Act (WpHG) states that members of supervisory and management boards of public limited companies (Aktiengesellschaften) and persons authorised to take key operational decisions must notify both the company and the German Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin) of their own dealings in shares of the company or in financial instruments of the company based on such shares.
Board of Management members Dr Haase and Mr Wellenzohn, and Supervisory Board members Mr Kauffmann and Mr Karlsten, disclosed their purchases of DEUTZ shares in accordance with this regulation in 2015. No other persons required by section 15a WpHG to make such a disclosure did so before the adoption of the 2015 annual financial statements. Transactions disclosed in previous years are published on the DEUTZ AG website.
There were no shareholdings of Board of Management or Supervisory Board members that were subject to reporting requirements pursuant to article 6.2 DCGK in the year under review or before the 2015 annual financial statements were adopted.
