Deutsche Börse - AGM 08 May 2019

Item 10: KPMG, Berlin, is proposed as auditor for the current financial year. Next to concerns over the ratio of non-audit/audit fees over a three-year aggregate period we note that KPMG has audited the Company since the financial year 2001 which exceeds our maximum acceptable term of office of 10 years in case no audit tender has taken place after the initial engagement period. We consider a longer term of office may impair the auditor's independence. We therefore recommend opposing the re-election of KPMG as auditor.
