*Definition of Free Float by the German Stock Exchange
With effect from the chaining date in June 2002, Deutsche Börse switched over to calculating its indices on the basis of free-float weighting. At the same time, the different classes of shares were separated in all indices, with the consequence that only the respective larger or more liquid class can now be included in a selection index. For the determination of the free-float portion, used to weight a company's class of shares in the respective index, the following definition applies accordingly:
1. All shareholdings of an owner which, on an accumulated basis, account for at least 5 percent of a company's share capital attributed to a class of shares are considered to be non-free float. Shareholdings of an owner also include shareholdings
2. The definition of 'non-free float' - irrespective of the size of a shareholding - covers any shareholding of an owner that is subject to a statutory or contractual qualifying period of at least six months with regard to its disposal by the owner. This does only apply during the qualifying period. Shareholdings as defined by sentence no. 1 above are counted as shareholdings for the calculation according to No. 1.
3. Irrespective of the size of a shareholding, the definition of free float includes all shareholdings held by
This does not apply to shareholdings managed or held in safe custody according to No. 1, or to venture capital companies, or other assets serving similar purposes. The shareholdings as defined by sentence no. 1 above are not counted as shareholdings for the calculation according to No. 1. The various criteria laid down in Nos. 1 to 3 are also fully applied to classes of shares that are subject to restrictions of ownership.
