During the current business year 2008 the SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES AG will adhere to the recommendations of the German Corporate Governance Code as amended by the Federal Department of Justice as per June 14, 2007. In the past business year 2007 the recommendations of the German Corporate Governance Code as per June 12, 2006 were adhered to. This excludes the following recommendations stated in No. 1 – 5 for the business years 2007 and 2008.
  1. In connection with the conclusion of a personal liability insurance for the member of the Boards (“D&O insurance") the company agreed with them that the members of the Boards will pay their own insurance premiums for the D&O insurance (c. Sec. 3.8 Para 2 of the Code).
  2. Instead of the determination of the maximum age of members of the Executive Board according to the by-laws, the by-laws of the Supervisory Board state that the age limit has to be considered for the succession planning (c. Sec. 5.1.2 Para. 2 of the Code).
  3. As long as the Supervisory Boards is only comprised of three members, there have not been and there will be no committees (c. Sec. 5.3.1 and 5.3.2 of the Code).
  4. Instead of the determination of the maximum age of members of the Supervisory Board according to the by-laws, the by-laws of the Supervisory Board state that the age limit has to be considered for the proposal of new members to be elected (c. Sec. 5.4.1 of the Code).
  5. There is no individualized information about the annual contribution to the provisions for pensions or pension funds for pension benefits for members of the Executive Board (with respect to Art. 4.2.5 of the Code) and no information about the kind of the fringe benefits granted to the members of the Executive Board by the company (with respect to Art. 4.2.5 Para. 3 of the Code). The compensation report as part of the Group’s Status Report already contains detailed information regarding the compensation of individual Executive Board members pursuant to the specifications of the German Executive Board Compensation Disclosure Act.
