The relevant information can be found on page 21 section 3.5 under “People & Remuneration Committee”, in sections 1.4 – 1.6 of the Remuneration Report ( see page 29 ff. ) and in Articles 29 – 32 of the Articles of Association, which can be found at https://www. vonrollgroup.com / en / corporate-governance / corporate-governance1 / articles-of-in-corporation/ in Section (“Abschnitt”) 4. The following is also stipulated: The maximum amounts of remuneration for the Board of Directors and Executive Management to be approved by the General Meeting are discussed by the People & Remuneration Committee in advance and proposed to the General Meeting for approval by the Board of Directors with the participation and input of all Members of the Board of Directors and the Executive Management. The actual amount to be paid to the Members of the Board of Directors is approved annually by the People & Remuneration Committee with the participation and input of all Members of the Board of Directors. The actual amount of fixed compensation to be paid to the Members of the Executive Management is agreed in the employment contract and is subject to annual review by the People & Remuneration Committee. No variable remuneration is paid. The decisions to determine these remunerations are discretionary decisions, which is why no explanation is given in this regard. The Delegate of the Board of Directors/CEO merely receives remuneration for his role as CEO, not as a Member of the Board of Directors. The remuneration of the Executive Management remained unchanged in the reporting year.

The regulations in the Articles of Association concerning the principles of performance-related remuneration, the allocation of equity securities and conversion rights and options, the additional amount for the remuneration of Members of the Executive Management appointed following the vote of the General Meeting on remuneration, and the vote of the General Meeting on remuneration can be found in Section (“Abschnitt”) 4 Article 30 ff. of the Articles of Association, which can be viewed at www. vonrollgroup.com / en / corporate-governance / corporate-governance1 / articles-of-in-corporation/, with the exception of the regulations on loans, credits and retirement benefits outside the occupational pension scheme granted to Members of the Board of Directors and Executive Management, which have not been included in the Articles of Association.
