Dear Sir/Madam,

Can you please tell me what percentage was assigned to orders for purchasing oversubscription shares during the capital increase in January 2010? I’m not sure whether the order I placed with my bank was billed correctly.

Helmut Ungerich, Schweinfurt

DES: The attractive conditions of our capital increase in January 2010 have stimulated high demand among our shareholders. Oversubscription was therefore only assigned a rate of 2.3%. This means that for every 1,000 shares ordered, effectively you would have been entitled to 23 shares. In the case of theoretical allocations of less than one share, the number of shares is rounded up to the nearest share and for all other differences, it is commercially rounded either up or down. You’ll find further information about the capital increase here.


What is the tax situation regarding the payment of dividends on shares acquired during the course of the capital increase in January 2010?

Alfons Zentendorf, Braunschweig

DES: The shares that you acquired during the capital increase in January 2010 qualify in full for a dividend for 2009. Payment of the dividends is handled in the same way from a tax point of view as all shares which have been acquired since 1 January 2009. This means that as a private investor, you initially get the dividend paid “tax free”. In return, your bank will reduce your purchase price by the dividend received so that this is classified as a gain in the event of a future sale and flat-rate tax will therefore be charged on it. You’ll find further information on this here.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Is it possible to obtain cancelled or invalid actual share certificates from Deutsche EuroShop AG? I am a keen collector of shares and would be delighted if you could let me know.

Frank Schmitt, Leipzig

DES: Unfortunately Deutsche EuroShop does not/has never issued actual share certificates and is therefore unable to contribute to your collection.

Dear IR Team,

I am keen to attend your Annual General Meeting in person this year and would like to book my hotel early. Can you tell me the exact date and venue of the meeting? Many thanks.

Dr. Ursula Hummel, Stuttgart

DES: Our Annual General Meeting will take place on 17 June 2010 in Hamburg. The meeting will be held at the Handwerkskammer (Holstenwall 12, opposite “Planten un Blomen”), where the 2007 Annual General Meeting was held. As a shareholder, we will send you an invitation together with additional information by post in due course.
