Voting rights notifications when reporting thresholds are crossed

Pursuant to § 33.1 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 § 40.1 WpHG, Allianz SE is obliged to publish the notifications relating to voting rights that it has received pursuant to § 33 WpHG. We publish these notifications via EQS Group AG.
In the table below we have listed the latest notifications of all investors having reported crossing of thresholds pursuant to § 33 WpHG. The companies subject to the notification requirement set out in this table are the parent companies in each case. You can find details in the individual notifications.

Notifications relating to total voting rights

As a listed company, Allianz SE is obliged, pursuant to § 40 WpHG, to publish its notifications relating to total voting rights.
