Changes of control and defense measures
The Articles of Incorporation contain no waiver of the duty to make a public offer under the terms of Art. 32 and 52 of the Stock Exchange Act (“opting out”). The result is that a shareholder who directly, indirectly, or in concert with third parties acquires shares in the company and, together with the shares he already possesses, thereby exceeds the 33 ⅓ percent threshold of voting rights in the company must make an offer for all listed shares of the company.
There are no clauses relating to changes of control.
