The Company's own shares can be sold, subject to approval by the Supervisory
Board, within a period of five years from the date of authorization other than

an employee participation program, either including members of the Management
Board and/or senior employees or exclusively for members of the Management Board
and/or senior employees, or for a stock option plan for employees, either
including members of the Management Board and/or senior employees or exclusively

The Management Board shall be authorized to withdraw own shares bought back with
