Supplementary Information on the Virtual Annual General Meeting

Against the background of the still ongoing Covid-19-pandemic, we decided to hold this year’s Annual General Meeting again virtually without the personal participation of our shareholders. Shareholders could follow the Annual General Meeting entirely live on the Internet via our online service. In beforehand to the Annual General Meeting, we informed our shareholders about the speeches of the CEO and the Chairman of the Supervisory Board.

Our shareholders could exercise their voting rights both by postal ballot or by proxies nominated by the company. Again this year, shareholders had the right to ask questions to the company before the Annual General Meeting. In addition, we offered the possibility to submit in advance comments in writing or as video messages that had been published on our website. Moreover, also on a voluntary basis, shareholders were given the opportunity to direct follow-up questions to the company during the Annual General Meeting. Details can be found in the agenda, in the explanations on shareholder rights and in the online service.

Remuneration Executive Board

At the recommendation of its Nomination Committee, the Supervisory Board resolved with effect as of 1 January 2021 a new remuneration system for members of the Executive Board. On 19 May 2021, the Annual General Meeting approved the new remuneration system.

The new remuneration system for the Executive Board of Deutsche Börse AG is closely aligned with the corporate strategy “Compass 2023” and geared to the long-term. Thereby, it sets holistic performance incentives for both a strong financial performance and also an environmental and social development based on a transparent and professional governance.
