Bremen, October 4, 2022. Marco and Christa Fuchs have transferred their entire direct and indirect holdings in OHB SE to a newly established Fuchs Family Foundation (Fuchs-Familienstiftung). The purpose of the establishment of the foundation and the transfer of shares which has taken place is to create a stable structure to ensure sustained ownership of the Company.
The foundation's objective with regard to OHB, the long-term retention of the entrepreneurial family assets of Marco and Christa Fuchs, is manifested in the foundation's articles of incorporation: In all decisions made by the foundation, the central benchmark is the securing, sustaining and continuation of the OHB Group.
The number of family shares, which are pooled under a voting agreement, has not changed as a result of this step: The Fuchs share pool continues to comprise 69.72 % of the shares in OHB SE, which also includes 1,000,000 shares of OHB held by the company Martello Value GmbH & Co. KG, which was recently founded by Romana Fuchs Mayrhofer. As a result of the transfer of the shares to the foundation, there have been no changes with regard to the persons acting - insofar as the (indirect) shareholder position at OHB SE is concerned: As Chairman of the Family Foundation, Marco Fuchs continues to control the OHB Group.
