Pursuant to Section 15a (1) sentence 1 WpHG, the notification must be issued within 5 working days. The notification is to be submitted to us and the issuer. The duty to provide a notification always arises upon conclusion of the transaction (conclusion of a contract). Within this context, the transaction constituting an obligation is the sole area of focus. Owing to the fact that the interval between the date of the transaction and the date on which the notification was furnished exceeded the specified period of 5 days, we have to assume that the notification did not occur within the required time frame. However, up to now your conduct regarding notifications has been beyond reproach.
