Clarification on the voting rights notification of Dr. Susanne Klatten dated June 25, 2024

In the voting rights notification published today, Dr. Susanne Klatten informed SGL Carbon SE that no voting rights in SGL Carbon SE via SKion GmbH are attributable to her anymore, as she has no longer control of SKion GmbH. However, SKion GmbH, Bad Homburg (Germany), remains the largest shareholder in SGL Carbon SE with 28.55%.

At the beginning of June 2024, Dr. Susanne Klatten announced in an interview that she would be handing over the ownership of SKion GmbH to her three children. In the interests of continuity, she would remain Managing Director of the company. Klatten said in the interview that this is not a "classic handover, it's more a transition". The close collaboration with the next generation at SKion will begin in July and is scheduled to last several years.
