Shareholder Structure

Sec. 21 of the German Securities Trading Act (Wertpapierhandelsgesetz – “WpHG”) requires each person whose shareholding reaches, exceeds or, after exceeding, falls below the 3%, 5%, 10%, 15%, 20%, 25%, 30%, 50% or 75% voting rights thresholds of a listed corporation to notify such to the corporation and to the German Federal Supervisory Authority for Financial Services (Bundesanstalt für Finanzdienstleistungsaufsicht - "BaFin") immediately, but no later than four trading days after they have reached, exceeded or fallen below such a threshold. For the purpose of determining the relevant shareholding, voting rights which are deemed to be held by way of attribution according to sec. 22 WpHG must also be taken into consideration. Non-compliance with the notification requirement has serious consequences: such holders cannot exercise any rights from any of the shares concerned until the disclosure requirement has been complied with (and in certain cases six months longer). In addition, a fine of up to € 2 million can be imposed on the relevant shareholder; regarding legal entities even a fine of up to 10 million or 5 per cent of the relevant (group) turnover of the reportable legal person may be imposed.

The voting rights held by the investors listed in the following table are taken from the respective latest shareholder notification to Infineon. The stated percentages in the second column refer to the number of shares on which the notification has been based.
