The registered shares (Namenaktien) are unitary shares, giving all shareholders the same rights in the companyʼs capital and the same participation rights. There are no restrictions on transferability. Only shareholders listed in the share register may exercise their participation rights. Shareholders are listed with voting rights in the share register if they explicitly declare that they have acquired the shares in their own name and for their own account. The voting and other rights of treasury shares are suspended.
The shares take the form of book-entry securities, and are not documented in a multiple share document, in certificates, in an individual share document or in any other form. Shareholders are not entitled to request delivery of a share certificate, but may request confirmation of their status as a shareholder from the Company at any time. The Company maintains a book-entry security ledger in accordance with Art. 973c of the Swiss Code of Obligations.
