The Heidelberg district court, a court of first instance, has rejected challenges filed against resolutions of the SAP AG 2006 Annual General Meeting of Shareholders. In particular, the court declined to overturn the Shareholder Meeting’s resolution to increase the Company’s subscribed capital using corporate funds.
The decision confirms the same court’s September 20, 2006 ruling, which granted SAP AG an interim release permitting the Company to proceed with the subscribed capital increase while the main actions, the challenges, were still before the court. That interim release decision was immediately appealed by one of the plaintiffs, so the subscribed capital increase is blocked until the Karlsruhe regional appellate court hears the appeal on the interim release. The plaintiffs also have a month in which to appeal the judgment on the main actions. The Company will provide information on the court proceedings and the expected timing of the bonus share issue as soon as this is foreseeable.
