1. Objectives of the acquisition of voting rights (section 43 (1) sentences 1 and 3 WpHG)
a) The indirect shareholding of the reporting person in Deutsche Lufthansa AG is attributed to the reporting person as a result of the acquisition of the shares of the deceased Heinz Hermann Thiele in Stella Vermögensverwaltungs GmbH by way of inheritance. The indirect acquisition of the voting rights in Deutsche Lufthansa AG by the reporting person therefore serves neither to implement strategic objectives nor to generate trading profits.
b) The reporting person currently does not intend to directly or indirectly obtain further voting rights in Deutsche Lufthansa AG by acquisition or any other way during the next 12 months.
c) The reporting person does not intend to influence the composition of the administration, management or supervisory board of Deutsche Lufthansa AG.
d) The reporting person does not intend to make any significant changes to the capital structure of Deutsche Lufthansa AG, especially with regards to the ratio of equity and debt financing and the dividend policy.
2. Source of funds used for the acquisition of voting rights (section 43 (1) sentence 4 WpHG)
Neither equity nor debt was used to acquire the voting rights. The (indirect) acquisition took place by way of inheritance.
