Mr. Andreas Lange has resigned his office as Supervisory Board Chairman for the company as of May 15, 2012 and has left the supervisory board. The register court in charge has appointed Mr. Klaus von Hörde as new member of the supervisory board for the time until elections take place on the annual general meeting.
