Published in 2002, the German Corporate Governance Code is based on internationally
and nationally recognized standards of good and responsible governance. The code covers
essential regulations on the governance and supervision of listed companies.
The code aims to promote the confidence of national and international investors, customers,
financial markets, employees and general public in the management and supervision
of listed German stock corporations.

US Disclaimer – Unsponsored American Depositary Receipt ("ADR") Program
An ADR program enables US investors to invest in a non-US company through a US dollar-denominated
instrument that trades and settles like US stock. As of October 10, 2008, the US Securities
and Exchange Commission allows depositary banks to establish ADR programs without
the participation or permission of a non-US issuer (a so-called “unsponsored ADR”)
based on a reasonable, good faith belief that the non-US issuer publishes certain
information in English.
WACKER does not authorize or encourage the creation of unsponsored ADR facilities
in respect of its securities and disclaims any liability in connection with any unsponsored
ADR program. WACKER's website does not include all information in English required
to maintain an exemption under Rule 12g3-2(b) of the US Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
No depositary institution or bank should rely on a belief that Wacker publishes all
information required to maintain such an exemption.
