Foreign shareholdings reach 40% - Company does not intend to buy back own shares according to Section 4 Paragraph 1 LuftNaSiG

Publication of an ad hoc notification in accordance with Art. 17 MAR

At the time of this notification the share register of Deutsche Lufthansa AG shows a shareholding of 41.7 per cent non-German shareholders. In accordance with Section 4 Paragraph 1 German Aviation Compliance Documentation Act (LuftNaSiG), the company is authorised to buy back own shares within the meaning of Section 71 Paragraph 1 No. 1 German Stock Corporation Act (AktG).  

The Executive Board of Deutsche Lufthansa AG is required under Section 6 Paragraph 2 LuftNaSiG to disclose the occurrence of circumstances as per Art. 17 MAR that authorise the Company to buy back its own shares under Section 4 Paragraph 1 LuftNaSiG. 

Following careful analysis, the company does not believe that there is any immediate danger of an increase of non-German shareholdings which would endanger the company’s ability to meet the requirements for retaining its licenses, rights and prerogatives under aviation law. It currently does not intend to exercise its right to buy back its own shares under Section 4 Paragraph 1 LuftNaSiG.
