Declaration of Conformity

pursuant to Article 161 of the German Stock Corporation Act

The activities of the Managing Board and Supervisory Board of Manz AG are guided by the recommendations set forth in the German Corporate Governance Code. This contains important statutory provisions as well as nationally and internationally recognized standards for corporate governance, which were drawn up and developed further by the appropriate government committee. This is to ensure that a corporation is managed and controlled satisfactorily.

The goal here is also to satisfy the ever-increasing demand for information made by various interest groups, which in turn creates transparency and strengthens the confidence placed in a company’s managing board.
