Heinz Dürr family pools voting rights

Bietigheim-Bissingen, December 5, 2011 - In the context of inheritance law provisions, Heinz Dürr GmbH and Heinz und Heide Dürr Stiftung GmbH intend to enter a pool agreement / vote binding agreement regarding their holdings of Dürr AG shares. Ahead of that, Heinz Dürr GmbH has sold 250,000 shares of Dürr AG in off-exchange trading to prevent the threshold of 30% from being exceeded as a result of the agreement. Exceeding the threshold of 30% would have the consequence that a mandatory offer to all other shareholders would have to be submitted.
