WALLDORF — SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) today announced that a
shareholder has filed a legal challenge with the Heidelberg District Court against the Company’s
increase in subscribed capital from corporate funds. The increase had been approved at the
Annual Shareholder Meeting on May 9, 2006, with a majority of 99.88%.
As a result of the legal challenge, the share capital change will not be entered
immediately in the Commercial Register at the Mannheim Municipal Court, and the issue of
additional shares (“bonus shares”) to SAP AG shareholders will be delayed. The timing of the
increase in subscribed capital from corporate funds will depend on the legal proceedings. SAP
will issue an update on the case and the timing of the subscribed capital increase as soon as it
becomes clear when this will take place.
