Axel Springer SE statement

In connection with media reports regarding merger talks with ProSiebenSat.1 we state:

Although as a basic rule, Axel Springer SE does not comment on the substance of market speculations, the following applies: Axel Springer SE continues to pursue the transformation of the company's legal form into a KGaA (partnership limited by shares/Kommanditgesellschaft auf Aktien) with the goal to secure the continuation of Axel Springer Gesellschaft für Publizistik GmbH & Co./Friede Springer’s control of the company on a long-term basis and open up growth options. Thus, speculations regarding a relinquishment of control are completely unfounded.
