its Executive Board and the Senior Management Group, but the shares can also

General Meeting 2014 on the authorization to acquire and to use its own
shares shall apply. The purchase price paid per share may not be more than

opening auction in the Xetra trading system on the day of trading.

Company through an appointed bank in compliance with the safe-harbor
provisions.
