Meeting to the Board of Directors to resolve on an issue of shares, options as
well as other instruments entitling to shares. 

The authorisations to purchase the Company's own shares and to issue new shares
are proposed in order to enable the Board of Directors to decide flexibly on
capital markets transactions that are beneficial for the Company, such as
securing the financing needs of the Company or implementing acquisitions. A
directed purchase of the Company's own shares and a directed share issue always
requires a weighty economic reason for the Company and the authorisations may
not be utilized inconsistently with the principle of equal treatment of
shareholders.
