21. Contingent Capital
In addition, the Annual General Meeting on April 29, 2020, resolved to contingently increase the share capital by up to a total of €42 million, composed of up to 42 million no-par-value bearer shares. In accordance with the underlying resolution of the Annual General Meeting, the contingent capital increase will be implemented only if:
- the holders or creditors of conversion and/or option rights attached to the convertible bonds and/or bonds with warrants issued in the period until April 28, 2025, by Beiersdorf Aktiengesellschaft or companies in which it holds a direct or indirect majority interest, choose to exercise their conversion or option rights, or
- the holders or creditors of convertible bonds giving rise to a conversion obligation issued in the period until April 28, 2025, by Beiersdorf Aktiengesellschaft, or companies in which it holds a direct or indirect majority interest, comply with such obligation,
and the contingent capital is required for this in accordance with the terms and conditions of the bonds.
The new shares bear dividend rights from the beginning of the fiscal year in which they are created as a result of the exercise of conversion or option rights, or as a result of compliance with a conversion obligation.
The Executive Board was authorized to determine the further details of the implementation of a contingent capital increase.
