In the interests of the shareholders of the company, compliance is required with the statutory obligation of banks to re-register/register the positions in the name of the shareholders pursuant to §67, 4 (1) Stock Corporation Act (AktG).

If the registration does not take place, there will be discrepancies in the share register. Therefore, re-registrations must be entered as soon as possible after a purchase transaction has been settled. In addition to registrations in the names of shareholders, it is also possible to register shares in the name of a depository bank acting as nominee.

Information on instructions in CASCADE-RS

For the participation of shareholders in the AGM and the associated exercise of voting rights, the shareholding shown in the share register of the company on the last re-registration date/technical record date is decisive. 

Re-registrations for shareholders who wish to participate or be represented at the AGM, must be entered in CASCADE-RS on the last re-registration date/technical record date (status "K" - checked) as follows:

  • Transfer times for instructions that are planned for processing in the third allocation run:

    Until 16:30    Data upload via the Investors Portal
    Until 16:45    SWIFT, File Transfer
    Until 17:00    Online via CASCADE-RS in status "K"
  • Transfer times for instructions that are planned for processing in the fourth allocation run:

    Until 18:20    Data upload via the Investors Portal
    Until 18:30    SWIFT, File Transfer
    Until 18:45    Online via CASCADE-RS in status "K"

Considering the processing timeframe at the register companies on the last re-registration date/technical record date, it is recommended to keep the number of instructions that are transferred in the fourth allocation as low as possible.

Fourth allocation run

The fourth allocation run for DF Deutsche Forfait AG shares is conducted on business days at approximately 21:00 in addition to the regular CASCADE-RS allocation times (10:15, 13:15 and 17:00) and solely for the above-mentioned period of time. The usual allocation times apply thereafter.

The information and instructions in Announcement RS18133 apply.

Delivery remains unaffected

Clearstream Banking1 will not block holdings at any time.
After confirmation of the re-registration by the share register, securities of the registered holdings are managed in CASCADE-RS in registered positions. The entering and processing of instructions for position transfers both from the allocated positions following successful allocation processing as well as from registered positions into the deliverable unregistered positions in order to fulfill delivery obligations is possible, without restrictions and at any time during the planned processing cycles if there are sufficient holdings. Schedules to be observed when instructing position transfers before the AGM are described in the above table.
