Pursuant to § 21.1 of the German Securities Trading Act (Wertpapierhandelsgesetz - WpHG), anyone who reaches, exceeds or falls below certain voting right thresholds (3%, 5%, 10%, 15%, 20%, 25%, 30%, 50% or 75%) in respect of a domestic issuer as a result of acquisition, sale or for other reasons is obliged to report this to both the issuer and the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (Bundesanstalt für Finanzdienstleistungsaufsicht - BaFin) without delay, but within four trading days at the latest.

Pursuant to § 26.1 WpHG, Allianz SE is obliged to publish the notifications relating to voting rights that it has received pursuant to §§ 21, 22 WpHG. We publish these notifications via DGAP (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Ad-Hoc-Publizität mbH).

Notification obligations for financial instruments

Since February 1, 2012, more stringent notification obligations have applied to financial instruments and "other instruments" pursuant to §§ 25, 25a WpHG. The notification obligation set out in § 25a WpHG now also covers financial instruments and other instruments that were not previously covered by § 25 WpHG and that allow their direct or indirect holder, either in de facto or financial terms, to acquire shares carrying voting rights issued by a listed issuer. Like the notifications pursuant to §§ 21, 22 WpHG, these disclosures have to be published by the issuer pursuant to § 26.1 WpHG. You can find them on the DGAP website as well.

Notifications relating to total voting rights

As a listed company, Allianz SE is obliged, pursuant to § 26a WpHG, to publish its notifications relating to total voting rights.
