Item 4: We uphold our recommendation to oppose the discharge of the Supervisory Board due to its decision not to claim for compensation against former or current Management Board members in connection with the conclusion of the European Commission's antitrust proceedings against the Company as we consider the investigations carried out to date to be insufficient and the Supervisory Board's decision not to be in the best interest of the Company's shareholders.
Items 5a and 5b: KPMG, Berlin, is proposed as auditor for the current financial year as well as for the review of the interim financial statements 2019 until the next AGM. We have no concerns over the ratio of non-audit/audit fees. However, we note that KPMG or its predecessors have audited the Company since at least the financial year 1979 which significantly exceeds our maximum acceptable term of office. We therefore recommend opposing the re-election of KPMG as auditor.

De plus, l'actionnaire majoritaire, Apax, est surreprésenté au conseil, en possédant la moitié des sièges, pour une participation au capital de 42,19%.
