CORPORATE GOVERNANCE

Corporate governance, the recognized principles of good and responsible corporate management and control, are a high priority at Deutsche Beteiligungs AG. With open, timely and regular information and transparent decision-making structures, we justify and promote the trust of current and future investors and others.

We welcome the current development of corporate governance in Germany. It contributes to the maturation of the capital market culture, from which Deutsche Beteiligungs AG, as a private equity investor, benefits particularly. Corporate governance is not a new topic for our Board of Management and Supervisory Board: many of these requirements arise directly from the German Stock Corporation Act, the Securities Trading Act and other laws. For us, they have always determined only the minimum standard that we exceed in our Articles of Association, in our rules of procedure and, above all, in practice.
