Please note that since the entry into force of the new Federal Act on the Implementation of the Recommendations of the Global Forum on Transparency and Exchange of Information for Tax Purposes, the issuance of new bearer shares is generally prohibited. In addition, please note that basically all bearer shares must be converted into registered shares by 30 April 2021 at the latest.

Companies that wish to maintain bearer shares on this basis must register this circumstance with the commercial register office until 30 April 2021.
