(1) The determinations in respect of the company’s affairs which are subject to the shareholders’ disposition are made by passing a resolution with a majority of the votes cast.
(2) Each euro of a share grants the holder one vote.
(3) Powers of attorney must be made in text form in order to be valid.
(4) Shareholders who are to be discharged or exempted from an obligation by resolution have no voting right in this connection nor may they exercise that voting right for another.
