Clearstream Banking1 informs customers that the annual general meeting (AGM) of German Startups Group GmbH & Co. KGaA (ISIN DE000A1MMEV4) will take place on

7 August 2020

In the interests of the shareholders of the company, CBF reminds customers of the statutory obligation of banks to re-register or register the positions in the name of the shareholders.

In order to avoid discrepancies in the share register resulting from a large number of unregistered positions, re-registrations in the names of the new shareholders must be carried out as soon as possible after the respective purchase transaction. 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.

Owing to the AGM, the transmission of re-registration and registration instructions from CASCADE-RS to the share register will be interrupted as follows. Automatic re-registration to nominee in accordance with § 67, 4 AktG (ALU) will also be interrupted in accordance with the following information.
