Shareholder Structure

Sec. 21 of the German Securities Trading Act (Wertpapierhandelsgesetz) 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 of the German Securities Trading Act 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 € 1 million can be imposed on the relevant shareholder.

The proportion of voting rights held by the investors listed in the following table is taken from the respective latest shareholder notification to Infineon according to sec. 21, 22 WpHG. The stated percentages in the second column refer to the share capital held at the date of the respective notification. The percentages in the third column refer to the current share capital and shall present a simplified overview on the current shareholder structure.

A notification requirement comparable to sec. 21, 22 WpHG and corresponding legal consequences are provided for in sec. 25 of the German Securities Trading Act with regard to financial instruments that result in an entitlement to unilaterally acquire shares carrying voting rights. Furthermore, on February 1, 2012, another notification requirement according to sec. 25a of the German Securities Trading Act has become effective. It shall apply to financial and other instruments that enable their holder to acquire shares with voting rights in factual or in economic terms.
