5. Resolution about the ratification of the actions of the Supervisory Board

The Board of Executive Directors and the Supervisory Board propose that the actions of the members of the Supervisory Board be ratified for the 2009 financial year.

6. Election to the Supervisory Board

After Dr. Uwe-Ernst Bufe, who had been elected to the Supervisory Board by the Annual General Meeting on 14 May 2008, stepped down from his office as of 31 August 2009, Mr. George Cardona was appointed in his stead as member of the Supervisory Board upon request of the Supervisory Board Chairman by resolution of the Local Court Kassel dated 8 October 2009 until the end of the next Annual General Meeting.

The Supervisory Board proposes to elect Mr. George Cardona to the Supervisory Board with effect from the end of the Annual General Meeting on 11 May 2010 until the end of the Annual General Meeting that decides about the ratification of actions for the 2014 financial year.

Mr. Cardona is an economist by profession, 58 years old, and has his residence in Monaco. He is a member of the following foreign supervisory bodies:

Board of CLL Management Ltd., Guernsey Board of CLL Hedge Portfolio Ltd., Guernsey Board of Diversified Macro Solutions plc, Ireland Board of Donalink Ltd., Cyprus Board of Erglis Ltd., Cyprus Board of Hamilton Art Ltd., Bermudas Board of Hamilton Jets Ltd., Bermudas Board of Linea Ltd., Bermudas (Vice Chairman) Board of Linetrust PTC Ltd., Bermudas (Vice Chairman) Board of MCC Holding plc, Cyprus Board der MCC Investments Ltd., Cyprus Directors' council of OJSC Siberian Coal Energy Co., Russia Directors' council of OJSC EuroChem Mineral and Chemical Company, Russia Board of Valise Ltd., Bermudas (Vice Chairman)

The composition of the Supervisory Board is determined by Section 96 paragraph 1 first alternative of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG) in connection with Section 7 paragraph 1 No. 2 of the German Co-Determination Act (Mitbestimmungsgesetz) and Section 8 paragraph 1 sentence 1 of the Articles of Association. The Annual General Meeting is not bound to resolution proposals.

7. Election of the auditor for the 2010 financial year

Upon recommendation of the audit committee, the Supervisory Board proposes to elect Deloitte & Touche GmbH, Hanover, as auditor for the financial statements and consolidated financial statements for the 2010 financial year.

8. Resolution about the authorization to issue convertible and option bonds with the concurrent creation of conditional capital as well as a corresponding amendment of the Articles of Association; cancellation of the resolution adopted by the Annual General Meeting on 10 May 2006 under item 7 of the Agenda

The Annual General Meeting of 10 May 2006 had authorized the Board of Executive Directors under item 7 of the Agenda until 9 May 2011, with the consent of the Supervisory Board, to issue convertible and/or option bonds and to grant conversion or, as the case may be, option rights for new shares in the company to the holders or, as the case may be, creditors of such bonds. At the same time, the share capital was increased conditionally and the Articles of Association were supplemented in Section 4 with a corresponding paragraph 5. One shareholder filed a lawsuit against the resolution of the Annual General Meeting, which was joined by several interveners, arguing that it was not permissible to determine only a minimum issue price. The District Court Kassel ruled in favour of the lawsuit. The appeal aimed against this ruling was rejected by the Upper State Court Frankfurt am Main. Because of the lawsuit, the amendment of the Articles of Association (creation of conditional capital) was not entered in the commercial register.

The concerns stated at the time against the effectiveness of the resolution of the Annual General Meeting no longer apply, since the law now explicitly permits the determination of a minimum issue price when adopting resolutions about the creation of conditional capital through a clarification Section 193 paragraph 2 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG).

The Board of Executive Directors and the Supervisory Board therefore propose that the following resolution be adopted:

"1. Cancellation of the resolution of the Annual General Meeting of 10 May 2006 adopted under item 7 of the Agenda

The resolution adopted by the Annual General Meeting on 10 May 2006 concerning item 7 of the Agenda about the authorization to issue convertible and option bods, the creation of a conditional capital, and a corresponding amendment of the Articles of Association is cancelled.

2. Authorization to issue convertible and option bonds

a) Nominal amount, authorization period, number of shares

The Board of Executive Directors is authorized until 10 May 2015, with the consent of the Supervisory Board, to issue bearer and/or registered convertible and/or option bonds (hereinafter jointly referred to as "Bonds") on one or several occasions with an aggregate nominal value of up to EUR 1,500,000,000.00 with or without a limited term and to issue or, as the case may be, impose on the holders or, as the case may be, creditors of Bonds conversion rights or obligations or, as the case may be, option rights for shares in the company with a proportionate amount of the share capital of up to a total of EUR 19,140,000.00 as set forth in more detail in the terms and conditions of the convertible or, as the case may be, option bonds. The proportionate amount of the share capital represented by the shares to be issued upon conversion may not exceed the nominal amount of the Bonds.

b) Consideration, issuance by group companies, debentures

In addition to Euros, the Bonds may also be issued in the legal tender of any OECD country, limited to the corresponding Euro counter-value at the time of issuance of the Bond. Bonds may also be issued by group companies of the company; in this case, the Board of Executive Directors is authorized to assume the guarantee for the Bonds on behalf of the company and to grant or impose conversion rights or obligations to/upon the holders, respectively, creditors of such Bonds for shares in the company. The Bond issues may in each case be subdivided into equivalent debentures.

c) Shareholder subscription right, subscription right exclusion

The company's shareholders are generally entitled to a subscription right to the Bonds. The Bonds may also be underwritten by one or several banks with the obligation to offer them to shareholders of the company for subscription. The shareholders' subscription right may, however, be excluded, in whole or in part, in the following cases:

aa) The Board of Executive Directors is authorized, with the consent of the Supervisory Board, to exclude the subscription right of the company's shareholders, if the bonds are issued against cash and if the issue price is not materially lower than the theoretical market value of the Bonds as calculated based on recognized financial mathematical methods. However, the subscription right exclusion only applies to Bonds with conversion rights or obligations or, as the case may be, option rights for shares representing a proportionate amount of the share capital of up to ten percent of the share capital as of the time of today's resolution or, if the amount of the share capital is lower at that time, at the time when then authorization is exercised. The maximum limit of ten percent of the share capital shall be reduced by a proportionate amount of the share capital attributable to those shares, which are issued during the term of this authorization in connection with any other capital increase where the subscription right is excluded in direct or indirect application of Section 186 paragraph 3 sentence 4 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG). The maximum limit of ten percent of the share capital shall furthermore be reduced by the proportionate amount of the share capital attributable to those treasury shares, which are sold and transferred by the company during the term of this authorization, where the subscription right is excluded in direct or indirect application of Section 186 paragraph 3 sentence 4 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG).

bb) The Board of Executive Directors is furthermore authorized, with the consent of the Supervisory Board, to exclude the subscription right of the company's shareholders, if and to the extent this is necessary to grant holders of conversion or option rights for shares in the company or, as the case may be, the creditors of convertible bonds furnished with conversion obligations a subscription right to the extent to which they would be entitled to after an exercise of these rights or, as the case may be, they would be entitled to after the fulfilment of the conversion obligations.

cc) The Board of Executive Directors is furthermore authorized, with the consent of the Supervisory Board, to exclude the subscription right of the company's shareholders in order to exempt fractional amounts from the shareholders' subscription right, which are a result of the subscription ratio.

dd) The Board of Executive Directors is finally authorized, with the consent of the Supervisory Board, to exclude the subscription right of the company's shareholders to the extent that Bonds are issued in connection with the acquisition of enterprises, participations in enterprises, or parts of enterprises against consideration in-kind, if the value of the consideration is adequate in relation to the value of the Bonds.

The authorization to exclude the subscription right pursuant to lit. aa) through dd) applies overall only to Bonds with conversion rights or obligations or, as the case may be, option rights for shares representing a proportionate amount of the share capital of up to ten percent of the share capital as of the time of today's resolution or, if the amount of the share capital is lower at that time, at the time when then authorization is exercised.

d) Conversion right, exchange ratio

If bonds with conversion rights are issued, creditors may exchange their Bonds against shares in the company in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Bonds. The exchange ratio is calculated by dividing the nominal amount of a Bond by the determined conversion price for a new share in the company. The exchange ratio may, however, also be calculated by dividing the issue price of a Bond that is below the nominal amount by the determined conversion price for a new share in the company. The exchange ratio may be rounded up or down in each case to the next integer; a premium to be paid in cash may also be determined. Beyond this, it may be determined that fractional amounts be combined and/or be compensated in money.

e) Option right

If option bonds are issued, one or several warrants will be attached to each bond, which authorize the holder, as set forth in more detail in the terms and conditions of the options to be determined by the Board of Executive Directors, to subscribe to shares in the company. The pro-rata amount of the share capital represented by the shares to be subscribed to for each Bond may not exceed the nominal amount of the option bond.

f) Conversion/option price

The respective conversion or, as the case may be, option price for a share in the company (subscription price) has to correspond to either (a) at least 80 percent of the weighted average stock exchange price of the company's shares in the computer trading system XETRA (or any functionally comparable successor system replacing it) at the Frankfurt Stock Exchange during the last ten exchange trading days prior to the day on which the Board of Executive Directors adopts the resolution to issue the convertible or option bonds, or (b) at least 80 percent of the weighted average stock exchange price of the company's shares in the computer trading system XETRA (or any functionally comparable successor system replacing it) at the Frankfurt Stock Exchange during the days on which the subscription rights are traded on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, except for the last two exchange trading days of the rights trading.

g) Protection against dilution

For Bonds with option rights or, as the case may be, conversion rights or obligations, the option rights or, as the case may be, conversion rights or obligations may be adjusted as set forth in more detail in the terms and conditions of the Bonds in the case of an economic dilution of the value of the option rights or, as the case may be, conversion rights or obligations, notwithstanding Section 9 paragraph 1 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG), to the extent that the adjustment is not already stipulated by law. The terms and conditions of the Bonds may furthermore provide for a value-preserving adjustment of the option rights or, as the case may be, conversion rights/obligations for the case of a capital reduction or other extraordinary measures or events (such as e.g. a third party obtaining control, unusually large dividends).

h) Terms and conditions of the Bonds

The terms and conditions of the Bonds may also provide for a conversion obligation as of the end of the term (or any earlier date) or provide for the right of the company to grant shares in the company in whole or in part instead of the payment of the amount of money due to the creditors of the Bonds at the time of final maturity of Bonds having conversion or option rights (this also includes a maturity because of termination).

The terms and conditions of the Bonds may furthermore stipulate in each case that the option or convertible bonds may according to the company's choice, instead of being converted into new shares from conditional capital, be converted into already existing shares in the company or that the option right may be fulfilled by delivering such shares.

Finally, the terms and conditions of the Bonds may provide that in the case of a conversion and instead of granting shares in the company, the company will pay an amount of money to the party entitled to the conversion, which for the number of shares to be delivered otherwise corresponds to the weighted average stock exchange price of the company's shares in the computer trading system XETRA (or any functionally comparable successor system replacing it) at the Frankfurt Stock Exchange during the ten exchange trading days after the declaration of the conversion or the exercise of the option.

i) Authorization to determine the further terms and conditions of the Bonds

The Board of Executive Directors is authorized, within the framework of the requirements under lit. a) through h), with the consent of the Supervisory Board, to determine the further details of the issuance and of the characteristics of the convertible and/or option bonds, particularly interest rate, issue price, term, denomination, dilution protection, and the conversion or, as the case may be, option period or, as the case may be, determine these in agreement with the corporate bodies of the participation companies issuing the convertible and/or option bonds.

3. Conditional capital increase

The share capital is increased by up to EUR 19,140,000.00 through the issuance of up to 19,140,000 bearer shares with no par value (conditional capital). Purpose of the conditional capital increase is to grant no-par value shares to the holders or, as the case may be, creditors of Bonds, which are issued by the company or group companies of the company in accordance with the above authorization under No. 2 until 10 May 2015. The new no-par value shares will be issued at the conversion or, as the case may be, option price to be determined in each case pursuant to No. 2. The conditional capital increase shall be implemented only insofar as these rights are exercised or the holders or, as the case may be, creditors required to convert fulfil their conversion obligation. The new no-par value shares are eligible to participate in the profits from the beginning of the financial year during which they are created through the exercise of conversion or, as the case may be, option rights or through the fulfilment of conversion obligations; in deviation from this, the Board of Executive Directors may determine, with the consent of the Supervisory Board, that the new no-par value shares are eligible to participate in the profits from the beginning of the financial year, for which the Annual General Meeting has not yet adopted a resolution about the appropriation of the balance sheet profit at the time when the conversion or, as the case may be, option rights are exercised or the conversion obligations are fulfilled. The Board of Executive Directors is authorized, with the consent of the Supervisory Board, to determine the further content of the share rights and the further details of the implementation of a conditional capital increase.

4. Change of the Articles of Association

Section 4 of the Articles of Association is supplemented with paragraph 5:

"The share capital is increased conditionally by up to EUR 19,140,000.00 through the issuance of up to 19,140,000 bearer shares with no par value (conditional capital). The conditional capital increase will be implemented only insofar as the holders or, as the case may be, creditors of conversion or option rights from bonds, which were issued by the company or a group company until 10 May 2015 based on the authorizing resolution of the Annual General Meeting of 11 May 2010, exercise their conversion or option rights, or as the holders or, as the case may be, creditors of the convertible bonds with conversion obligation, which were issued by the company or a group company until 10 May 2015 based on the authorizing resolution of the Annual General Meeting of 11 May 2010, who are required to convert, fulfil their conversion obligation, or to the extent that the company exercises an election right until 10 May 2015, based on the authorizing resolution of 11 May 2010, to grant shares in the company, in whole or in part, instead of a payment of the due amount of money, and to the extent no cash compensation is paid or treasury shares are used to satisfy these claims. The new no-par value shares are eligible to participate in the profits from the beginning of the financial year in which they are created through the exercise of conversion or, as the case may be, option rights or through the fulfilment of conversion obligations; in deviation from this, the Board of Executive Directors may determine, with the consent of the Supervisory Board, that the new no-par value shares are eligible to participate in the profits from the beginning of the financial year, for which the Annual General Meeting has not yet adopted a resolution about the appropriation of the balance sheet profit at the time the conversion or, as the case may be, option rights are exercised or the conversion obligations are fulfilled. The Board of Executive Directors is authorized, with the consent of the Supervisory Board, to determine the further content of the share rights and the further details of the implementation of the conditional capital increase."

5. Authority to amend the Articles of Association

The Supervisory Board is authorized to amend the wording of Section 4 paragraph 1 and 5 of the Articles of Association in accordance with the respective utilization of the conditional capital."

Report of the Board of Executive Directors on item 8 of the Agenda pursuant to Sections 221 paragraph 4 sentence 2, 186 paragraph 4 sentence 2 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG)

A lawsuit had been filed against the resolution adopted during the Annual General Meeting of 10 May 2006 under item 7 of the Agenda regarding the authorization to issue convertible and option bonds and create a conditional capital, which argued that the determination of only a minimum issue price was not permitted. By decision of 21 December 2006, the District Court Kassel ruled in favour of the lawsuit. The appeal aimed against the ruling was rejected by the Upper State Court Frankfurt am Main, civil senates in Kassel, by judgment of 16 May 2008, which has become unappealable.

Considering the uncertain outcome of the legal dispute and the long time that would probably have passed until the German Federal Court of Justice would have rendered a judgment, the company decided not to lodge an appeal on points of law. The concerns that were raised against the effectiveness of the shareholder resolution at the time are no longer relevant, since the law now explicitly permits the determination of a minimum issue price when adopting a resolution about the creation of a conditional capital through a clarification in Section 193 paragraph 2 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG).

We report in detail on the authorization resolution proposed to this year's Annual General Meeting under item 8 of the Agenda, particularly the subscription right exclusion in No. 2, lit. c) of the resolution proposal, as follows:

The issuance of convertible bonds and/or option bonds may, in addition to the classical possibilities of taking up debt or equity, provide the opportunity to utilize attractive financing alternatives on the capital markets depending on the market situation. The Board of Executive Directors believes that it is in the interest of the company to have this financing possibility also available to the company.

The issuance of convertible bonds and/or option bonds (together "Bonds") makes it possible to take up capital at attractive conditions. The generated conversion or, as the case may be, option premiums benefit the company's capital base and thereby enable it to utilize more advantageous financing opportunities. The possibility to also establish conversion obligations in addition to the grant of conversion and/or option rights, which are also provided for, expands the structuring scope for this financing instrument. The authorization provides the company with the necessary flexibility to place the Bonds by itself or through direct or indirect affiliates. Other than in Euro, Bonds may also be issued in the legal currency of any other OECD country. In order to achieve a balanced relationship between the company's interest in expanding the basis of its financing possibilities through the aforementioned instruments and the interests of the shareholders to be protected against any unreasonable dilution of their shareholdings, the conditional capital shall be created only up to a maximum amount of ten percent of the share capital.

The shareholders will generally also receive a subscription right for convertible or option bonds. The Board of Executive Directors shall, however, be authorized, with the consent of the Supervisory Board, to exclude the subscription right of the shareholders when Bonds are issued against cash contributions in corresponding application of Section 186 paragraph 3 sentence 4 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG), insofar as the issuance of shares based on conversion or, as the case may be, option rights or conversion obligations is limited to up to ten percent of the company's share capital.

The possibility to exclude the subscription right enables the company to make use of advantageous stock exchange situations rapidly and to place Bonds on the market quickly and flexibly and based on attractive conditions. Stock markets have become significantly more volatile. Generating the most advantageous issue result therefore depends increasingly on the ability to react to market developments on short notice. Conditions that are advantageous and as close to the market as possible can generally be obtained only, if the offer period for which the company is bound by them is not too long. In the case of rights issues, a safety discount is necessary, which is regularly not insignificant, in order to ensure the attractiveness of the conditions and thus the chances for success throughout the entire offer period. Though Section 186 paragraph 2 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG) does permit a publication of the subscription price (and thus in the case of option and convertible bonds of the conditions of the bond) until the third-last day of the subscription period, a market risk nevertheless exists in this case for several days, considering the volatility of stock markets, which may lead to safety discounts when the bond conditions are determined and thus to conditions that are not close to the market. Where a subscription right is granted, an alternative placement with a third party becomes more difficult or, as the case may be, may involve additional efforts because of the uncertainty as to whether it is exercised (subscription behaviour). Finally, the company is unable to react to any change of the market situation at short notice where a subscription right is granted, because of the duration of the subscription period, which may lead to detrimental capital procurement for the company.

The interests of the shareholders are protected in the case of an exclusion of subscription rights in accordance with Section 186 paragraph 3 sentence 4 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG), since Bonds will not be issued significantly below market value. The market value is to be determined in accordance with recognized financial mathematical principles. For this purpose, the expert opinion of an experienced investment bank or auditing firm will be obtained. When determining the price, taking account the respective situation on the capital markets, the Board of Executive Directors will keep the discount from the market value as small as possible. As a consequence, the imputed value of a subscription right will effectively approach zero so that the shareholders cannot suffer a significant economic loss through the exclusion of the subscription right. The shareholders are also able to maintain their participation in the company's share capital at nearly identical conditions through an acquisition over the stock exchange. Their financial interests are reasonably protected thereby. The authorization to exclude the subscription right in accordance with Section 186 paragraph 3 sentence 4 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG) applies only to Bonds with rights to shares, to which a proportionate amount of the share capital totalling no more than ten percent of the share capital is attributable at the time the resolution is adopted on 11 May 2010 or, if it the amount of the share capital is lower at that time, at the time when the authorization is exercised. Shares are credited towards this maximum amount, which are otherwise issued with exclusion of the subscription right or in accordance with Section 186 paragraph 3 sentence 4 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG). This credit occurs in the interest of shareholders in the smallest possible dilution of their participation.

Furthermore, the Board of Executive Directors is to be provided with the possibility, with the consent of the Supervisory Board, to exclude the subscription right of shareholders in order to grant a subscription right to the holders or creditors of convertible and/or option rights or of convertible bonds with conversion obligations to the extent to which they would be entitled to after an exercise of the conversion or, as the case may be, option rights or after fulfilment of the conversion obligation. This makes it possible to prevent that if the authorization is exercised, the option or, as the case may be, conversion price for the holders of already existing conversion or, as the case may be, option rights will have to be reduced under the option and conversion conditions or that the company may have to provide other dilution protection.

The Board of Executive Directors is furthermore to be authorized, with the consent of the Supervisory Board, to exempt fractional amounts from the subscription right. Such fractional amounts may result from the amount of the respective issue volume and the calculation of a practicable subscription ratio. Excluding the subscription right in these cases makes it easier to implement the capital measure. The free fractions excluded from the shareholders' subscription right are either sold over the stock exchange or are realized otherwise in the manner most beneficial for the company.

Finally, the Board of Executive Directors is also to be authorized, with the consent of the Supervisory Board, to exclude the subscription right of shareholders to the extent that Bonds are issued against consideration in-kind for purposes of acquiring enterprises, participations in enterprises, or parts of enterprises, if the value of the consideration in-kind is adequate in relation to the value of the Bonds. This makes it possible to use Bonds as and acquisition currency in suitable cases, thereby acquiring interesting acquisition target on short notice while preserving liquidity. This is of particular importance for the company, since it is exposed to international competition and since it may be advantageous to take recourse to international partnerships and participations for the development or marketing of products and services. The Board of Executive Directors will examine diligently in each individual case, whether it will make use of the authorization to issue Bonds with the exclusion of subscription rights. It will do this only, if this is in the interest of the company.

The authorization to exclude subscription rights pursuant to lit. c) aa) through c) dd) is limited overall. It applies overall only to Bonds with conversion rights or obligations or, as the case may be, option rights for shares representing a proportionate amount of the share capital of up to ten percent of the share capital at the time the resolution is adopted on 11 May 2010 or, if the amount of the share capital is lower at that time, at the time when the authorization is exercised. By limiting the authorization to exercise subscription rights, the interest of the shareholders in the lowest possible dilution of their participation is protected.

9. Resolution about the creation of a new authorized capital, amendment of the Articles of Association; cancellation of the resolution adopted by the Annual General Meeting on 10 May 2006 under item 8 of the Agenda By resolution of the Annual General Meeting of 10 May 2006 (item 8 of the Agenda), the Board of Executive Directors was authorized until 9 May 2011, with the consent of the Supervisory Board, to increase the share capital of the company on one or several occasions against contributions in cash or in kind, however, by no more than an aggregate maximum of EUR 54,400,000.00 through the issuance of no more than 20,625,000 new bearer shares with no par value (authorized capital). Based on the stock split with a ratio of 1:4, which was decided by the Annual General Meeting on 14 May 2008, and the related increase of the share capital from EUR 108,800,000.00 to EUR 165,000,000.00 the corresponding provision of the Articles of Association (Section 4 paragraph 4) was adjusted insofar as the authorization related to the issuance of a maximum of 82,500,000.00 new no-par value shares. In connection with the issuance of 26,400,000.00 new no-par value shares, decided based on the authorization by the Board of Executive Directors with the consent of the Supervisory Board on 25 November 2009, the Supervisory Board has adopted the necessary amendment of the wording of Section 4 paragraph 4 of the Articles of Association (reduction of the scope of the authorization to the issuance of 56,100,000.00 new no-par value shares).

Since it has turned out in the meantime that the determination of the relevant stock exchange price for the issue price in the case of a capital increase with the exclusion of subscription rights in the existing authorization is obstructive to a flexible use of the instrument, the authorization is to be renewed early with a modified definition of the relevant stock exchange price as well as a limitation of the potential volume to thirty percent of the share capital and reduction of the scope of the authority for a subscription right exclusion in the case of capital increases against contributions in-kind to twenty percent of the share capital.

The Board of Executive Directors and the Supervisory Board therefore propose that the following resolution be adopted:

"1. Cancellation of the resolution adopted by the Annual General Meeting on 10 May 2006 under item 8 of the Agenda

The resolution adopted by the Annual General Meeting on 10 May 2006 under item 8 of the Agenda is cancelled.

2. Adoption of a resolution about the creation of a new authorized capital, amendment of the Articles of Association

a) The Board of Executive Directors is authorized until 10 May 2015, with the consent of the Supervisory Board, to increase the company's share capital on one or several occasions against contributions in cash or in kind, however, by no more than an aggregate amount of EUR 57,420,000.00 through the issuance of no more than 57,420,000 new bearer shares with no par value (authorized capital). Shareholders are generally to be granted a subscription right when the capital increase is implemented. The Board of Executive Directors may, with the consent of the Supervisory Board, exclude the statutory subscription right of the shareholders in the following cases up to an aggregate proportionate amount of the share capital of EUR 38,280,000.00 (corresponding to 38,280,000 no-par value shares):

aa) The Board of Executive Directors may, with the consent of the Supervisory Board, exclude the statutory subscription right of the shareholders for fractional amounts that arise as a consequence of the subscription right.

bb) The Board of Executive Directors may, with the consent of the Supervisory Board, exclude the statutory subscription right of shareholders during capital increases against cash contributions up to a proportionate amount of the share capital of EUR 19,140,000.00 (corresponding to 19,140,000 no-par value shares), if the issue price of the new shares is not materially less than the stock exchange price of the already exchange-listed shares of the same class and structure when the issue price is finally determined by the Board of Executive Directors. The proportionate amount of the share capital of EUR 19,140,000.00 is reduced by the proportionate amount of the share capital attributable to those shares, which are issued during the term of this authorization in connection with any other capital increase where the subscription right is excluded in direct or indirect application of Section 186 paragraph 3 sentence 4 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG). The proportionate amount of the share capital of EUR 19,140,000 is furthermore reduced by the proportionate amount of the share capital allocable to those shares, which are sold and transferred by the company during the term of this authorization and where the subscription right is excluded in direct or indirect application of Section 186 paragraph 3 sentence 4 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG). Relevant stock exchange price for purposes of sentence 1 shall be the price of the company's share in the computer trading system XETRA (or any functionally comparable successor system replacing it) at the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.

cc) The Board of Executive Directors may, with the consent of the Supervisory Board, exclude the statutory subscription right of the shareholders in the case of capital increase against contributions in kind up to a proportionate amount of the share capital of EUR 38,280,000.00 (corresponding to 38,280,000 no-par value shares), if the new shares are to be used as consideration during the acquisition of an enterprise or a participation in an enterprise by the company. The proportionate amount of the share capital of EUR 38,280,000.00 shall be reduced by the proportionate amount of the share capital attributable to those shares, which are issued during the term of this authorization in connection with any other capital increase using authorized capital or conditional capital where the subscription right is excluded. The proportionate amount of the share capital of EUR 38,280,000.00 shall furthermore be reduced by the proportionate amount of the share capital attributable to those treasury shares, which are sold and transferred by the company during the term of this authorization and where the subscription right is excluded.

The Board of Executive Directors is authorized, with the consent of the Supervisory Board, to determine the further details of a capital increase using the authorized capital.

b) Section 4 paragraph 4 of the Articles of Association is revised as follows:

Shareholders are generally to be granted a subscription right when the capital increase is implemented. The Board of Executive Directors may, with the consent of the Supervisory Board, exclude the statutory subscription right of the shareholders in the following cases up to an aggregate proportionate amount of the share capital of EUR 38,280,000.00 (corresponding to 38,280,000 no-par value shares):

b) The Board of Executive Directors may, with the consent of the Supervisory Board, exclude the statutory subscription right of shareholders during capital increases against cash contributions up to a proportionate amount of the share capital of EUR 19,140,000.00 (corresponding to 19,140,000 no-par value shares), if the issue price of the new shares is not materially less than the stock exchange price of the already exchange-listed shares of the same class and structure when the issue price is finally determined by the Board of Executive Directors. The proportionate amount of the share capital of EUR 19,140,000.00 is reduced by the proportionate amount of the share capital attributable to those shares, which are issued during the term of this authorization in connection with any other capital increase where the subscription right is excluded in direct or indirect application of Section 186 paragraph 3 sentence 4 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG). The proportionate amount of the share capital of EUR 19,140,000.00 is furthermore reduced by the proportionate amount of the share capital allocable to those shares, which are sold and transferred by the company during the term of this authorization and where the subscription right is excluded in direct or indirect application of Section 186 paragraph 3 sentence 4 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG). Relevant stock exchange price for purposes of sentence 1 shall be the price of the company's share in the computer trading system XETRA (or any functionally comparable successor system replacing it) at the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.

The Board of Executive Directors is authorized, with the consent of the Supervisory Board, to determine the further details of a capital increase using the authorized capital."

c) The Supervisory Board is authorized to modify Section 4 paragraph 4 of the Articles of Association in accordance with the respective utilization of the authorized capital."

Report by the Board of Executive Directors on item 9 of the Agenda pursuant to Sections 203 paragraph 2, 186 paragraph 4 sentence 2 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG)

The Board of Executive Directors requests under item 9 of the Agenda to be able to exclude the subscription right of the shareholders in respect to shares issued using authorized capital in three cases:

1. The exclusion of the subscription right for fractional amounts is necessary in order to be able to provide a practicable subscription ratio. The shares excluded from the shareholders' subscription right as free fractional amounts are either sold over the stock exchange or are realized otherwise in the manner most beneficial for the company.

2. The exclusion of subscription rights during capital increases against cash contributions that is requested within the scope permitted by law (up to a maximum of ten percent of the share capital) enables the management to utilize advantageous stock market situations on short notice and achieve a higher inflow of funds through a rapid placement of new shares with acquiring investors. When utilizing the requested authorization to exclude subscription rights, the Board of Executive Directors will determine the issue price so that the discount from the stock exchange price is as small as possible. Shares will be credited towards the maximum limit of ten percent of the share capital, which were issued otherwise during the term of the authorization and where the subscription right was excluded pursuant to or in accordance with Section 186 paragraph 3 sentence 4 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG) (e.g. by way of utilizing the conditional capital or by disposing of treasury shares). This credit occurs in the interest of shareholders in the smallest possible dilution of their participation.

3. It furthermore requests to be able to exclude the subscription right in the case of a capital increase against contributions in-kind (up to a maximum of twenty percent of the share capital), if the new shares are to be used as consideration in the acquisition of an enterprise or participation in an enterprise. The requested authorization enables the Board of Executive Directors to have own shares in the company available upon short notice for the acquisition of enterprises or participations therein without taking recourse to stock exchanges. Considering the increasing competition, the company depends on the ability to make quick and flexible use of arising opportunities for strategic acquisitions. It may not be possible to provide the large consideration for the acquisition of participations in enterprise without compromising the company's liquidity. Providing a sufficient authorized capital with the possibility to exclude the subscription right thus strengthens the negotiation position of our company and provides it with the necessary flexibility to be able to make use of arising opportunities for the acquisition of enterprises or participations therein. The management will only make use of the authorized capital for the aforementioned purpose, if the relationship between value of the new shares of the company and the value of the consideration is adequate. Shares will be credited towards the maximum limit of twenty percent of the share capital, which are issued during the term of the authorization in connection with any other capital increase using authorized capital or conditional capital where the subscription right of the shareholders is excluded as well as treasury shares, which are sold and transferred by the company during the term of this authorization and where the subscription right is excluded. This credit occurs in each case in the interest of shareholders in the smallest possible dilution of their participation.

10. Resolution about the authorization to acquire and use treasury shares

The Board of Executive Directors was authorized until 31 October 2010 by resolution of the Annual General Meeting on 13 May 2009 to acquire treasury shares for the company. The Board of Executive Directors and the Supervisory Board propose that the following resolution be adopted:

"1. With the revocation of the authorization of 13 May 2009, the Board of Executive Directors is authorized until 10 May 2015 to acquire treasury shares of the company.

The acquisition will occur through a stock exchange or by means of a public purchase offer addressed to all shareholders.

a) In the case of an acquisition through a stock exchange, the purchase price per share paid by the company (without ancillary acquisition costs) may not exceed or fall below the relevant stock exchange price by more than ten percent; relevant stock exchange price for this purpose shall be the price for the company's shares determined by the opening auction in the computer trading system XETRA (or any functionally comparable successor system replacing it) at the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.

b) In the case of an acquisition through a public purchase offer addressed to all shareholders, the offered purchase price per share (without ancillary acquisition costs) may not exceed or fall below the relevant stock exchange price by more than ten percent; relevant stock exchange price for this purpose shall be the weighted average price for the company's shares determined by the opening auction in the computer trading system XETRA (or any functionally comparable successor system replacing it) at the Frankfurt Stock Exchange during the last ten exchange trading days prior to the publication of the purchase offer. The volume of the offer may be limited. If the overall subscription to this offer exceeds this volume, the acceptance has to occur on a pro-rata basis. A preferred acceptance of small quantities of up to 100 offered shares of stock per shareholder may be provided for.

Based on the aforementioned authorization own no-par value shares corresponding to no more than ten percent of all no-par value shares of the share capital may be acquired for the company. The company may not hold more than ten percent of the total number of no-par value shares of its share capital at any time, which is why no-par value shares that were previously acquired and are still held by the company are credited towards the maximum number of no-par value shares that may be acquired.

2. The Board of Executive Directors is furthermore authorized, with the consent of the Supervisory Board, to sell and transfer shares in the company, which are or were acquired based on an authorization pursuant to No. 1 or a an authorization previously issued by the Annual General Meeting pursuant to Section 71 paragraph 1 No. 8 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG), on the stock exchange or a public offer addressed to all shareholders.

In the following cases, the shares may also be sold and transferred in a different manner und thus also subject to an exclusion of the subscription right of the shareholders:

a) Disposal of shares representing a calculatory share of the share capital of up to a total of ten percent of the share capital against payment of an amount of money per share, which may not be materially less than the stock exchange price of the company's shares of the same class and structure. Relevant stock exchange price for this purpose shall be the closing price of the company's shares in the computer trading system XETRA (or a functionally comparable successor system replacing it) at the Frankfurt Stock Exchange on the day prior to the disposal.

b) Providing shares as consideration for purposes of acquiring enterprises, parts of enterprises, or participations in enterprises.

c) Serving convertible and option bonds, which were issued based on an authorization of the Annual General Meeting.

The authorization to exclude the subscription right pursuant to lit. a) through c) applies in aggregate to shares representing a proportionate amount in the share capital of up to ten percent of the share capital at the time of today's resolution or, if the share capital amounts to less at that time, at the time the authorization is exercised. The maximum limit of ten percent of the share capital shall be reduced by the proportionate amount of the share capital attributable to those shares, which are issued during the term of this authorization in connection with a capital increase using authorized capital or conditional capital where the subscription right is excluded.

3. The Board of Executive Directors is finally authorized, with the consent of the Supervisory Board, to cancel shares of the company, which are or were acquired based on the authorization pursuant to No. 1 or an authorization previously issued by the Annual General Meeting pursuant to Section 71 paragraph 1 No. 8 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG) and no additional resolution of the Annual General Meeting is required to effect the cancellation. The cancellation shall occur pursuant to Section 237 paragraph 3 No. 3 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG) without capital reduction in the manner that the share of the other no-par value shares in the share capital is increased as a consequence of the cancellation pursuant to Section 8 paragraph 3 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG). The Board of Executive Directors is authorized pursuant to Section 237 paragraph 3 No. 3 second half-sentence of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG) to adjust the number of shares in the Articles of Association.

4. The authorizations to acquire treasury shares, to dispose of them, and to cancel them may in each case be exercised in whole or in part, in the latter case also on several occasions."

Report by the Board of Executive Directors on item 10 of the Agenda pursuant to Section 71 paragraph 1 No. 8 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG) in connection with Section 186 paragraph 3 sentence 4, paragraph 4 sentence 2 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG)

Item 10 of the Agenda contains the proposal to authorize the company pursuant to Section 71 paragraph 1 No. 8 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG) until 10 May 2015 to acquire treasury shares of up to ten percent of the share capital. With the proposed renewed authorization, the company is enabled beyond the previous time frame to continue to use the instrument of acquiring treasury shares, in order to realize the advantages related to the acquisition of treasury shares in the interests of the company and its shareholders. This authorization exists within the legal limits of Section 71 paragraph 2 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG).

In addition to the acquisition through the stock exchange, the company is also to be provided with the possibility to acquire treasury shares through a public purchase offer (tender process). In this alternative, each shareholder willing to sell can decide, how many shares and, if a price range is determined, at what price he wants to offer such shares. If the quantity offered at the determined price exceeds the demanded number of shares, the sales offers will have to be allocated. The possibility should exist here to provide for a preferential acceptance of small offers or of small parts of offers of up to a maximum of 100 shares of stock. The purpose of this possibility is to avoid fractional amounts during the determination of the quotas and small residual holdings and to thereby facilitate the technical implementation.

The proposed authorization also provides for the ability of the Board of Executive Directors, with the consent of the Supervisory Board, to carry out a disposal of the acquired treasury shares also in a different manner than on a stock exchange or through an offer to all shareholders, if the acquired treasury shares are disposed of at a price, which is not materially less than the stock exchange price of shares of the company at the time of the disposal.

The possibility provided by the authorization to exclude the subscription right in corresponding application of Section 186 paragraph 3 sentence 4 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG) serves the interest of the company to sell treasury shares e.g. to long-term oriented investors or to win new shareholder groups at home and abroad. The possibility to exclude the subscription right enables the management to make use of the opportunities for a fast and cost-effective placement that may come up because of the situation of stock exchanges at the time without offering a subscription right that involves significant efforts in terms of time and costs.

The purpose of acquiring treasury shares is also to enable the company based on the proposed authorization resolution to act flexibly and cost-effectively when acquiring enterprises within the context of its intended acquisition policy, in order to e.g. use treasury shares as consideration when buying enterprises in certain cases.

In addition, it is meant to enable the company to use the shares also for serving conversion and option bonds. It may be practical to use treasury shares in whole or in part instead of new shares from a capital increase to fulfil the conversion or option rights. By using treasury shares, any dilution of the shares of shareholders that would occur if the conditional capital were used, is ruled out. When deciding, whether to deliver treasury shares or to utilize the conditional capital, the Board of Executive Directors will diligently balance the interests of the company and of the shareholders.

The financial and voting right interests of shareholders are reasonably protected during a disposal of the own shares to third party when the subscription right of shareholders is concluded based on the rule of Section 71 paragraph 1 No. 8 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG). The acquired treasury shares may, if they are to be disposed of other than on the stock exchange or through an offer to all shareholders, be disposed of only at a price, which is not materially less than the relevant stock exchange price of the company's shares at the time of disposal (cf. No. 2 lit. a) of the authorization). The authorization to exclude the subscription right is limited to a total of ten percent of the company's share capital. Shares are credited towards this maximum limit, which were issued during the term of this authorization in connection with a capital increase using authorized capital or conditional capital with the exclusion of the subscription right. This credit occurs in the interest of shareholders in the smallest possible dilution of their participation.

Requirements for the attendance at the Annual General Meeting and the exercise of the voting right

Only shareholders of the company who register in time and document their eligibility are entitled to attend the meeting and exercise the voting right.

As documentation, a special certificate confirming their shareholding issued in text form by the depositary institution ("Confirmation") is sufficient. The Confirmation must refer to the beginning of the 21st day prior to the meeting ("Record Date"), which is 20 April 2010, 00:00 hours.

The registration and the Confirmation must be received by the company under the following address in text form in the German or English language no later than on 4 May 2010, 24:00 hours:

K+S Aktiengesellschaft c/o Commerzbank AG WASHV dwpbank AG Wildunger Straße 14 60487 Frankfurt am Main (Germany) Fax: +49 (0) 69 / 5099 - 1110 E-Mail: hv-eintrittskarten@dwpbank.de

In case of questions regarding the exercise of the voting right, please contact Bank of New York Mellon, Tel.: +1-888-269-2377.

Importance of the Record Date

The Record Date is the decisive date for the scope and exercise of the attendance and voting right at the Annual General Meeting. In relation to the company, only those are considered shareholders for purposes of attending the Annual General Meeting or exercising the voting right, who have documented their shareholding as of the Record Date. Changes in the shareholdings after the Record Date are not relevant. Shareholders, who have acquired their shares only after the Record Date, are accordingly unable to attend the Annual General Meeting. Shareholders, who have properly registered and provided the Confirmation, are also entitled to attend the Annual General Meeting and exercise the voting right, if they sell and transfer the shares after the Record Date. The Record Date has no effect on the ability to sell and transfer shares and is not a relevant date for any dividend entitlement.

Proxy voting procedure

The voting right may also be exercised through a proxy, i.e. a bank or a shareholders' association.

Granting the power of attorney, revoking it, and proof of authorization vis-à-vis the company generally require the text form. The revocation may, however, also be effected by the shareholder attending the Annual General Meeting in person.

Exemptions from the text form requirement may exist for banks, shareholders' associations, or equivalent persons or institutions, c.f. Section 135, Section 125 paragraph 5 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG). We therefore ask that our shareholders coordinate with banks, shareholders' associations, or equivalent persons or institutions regarding the form of powers of attorney granted to them.

We would like to point out that a proper registration and confirmation of shareholding by the depositary institution are also required when granting proxy.

Shareholders are offered to authorize proxies appointed by the company, who are bound to observe instructions. Granting the power of attorney, revoking it, and proof of authorization vis-à-vis the company require the text form.

To authorize and issue instructions to proxies appointed by the company or a third party, the corresponding section of the admission ticket may be used, which is mailed to shareholders by the depositary institution after their proper registration.

The company offers an Internet-based system for the electronic transmission of the power of attorney and instructions or, as the case may be, of the revocation under www.k-plus-s.com. The admission ticket number is required to use this system. The admission ticket is mailed by the depositary institution after the registration has been completed. Shareholders will find further details on the company's website in the section Annual General Meeting in the more detailed "Explanations on the attendance at the Annual General Meeting and proxy voting".

If a shareholder authorizes more than one person, the company may reject one or several of them.

Transmission of the Annual General Meeting on the Internet

The Annual General Meeting will be transmitted on the Internet under www.k-plus-s.com until the end of the speech of the Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors.

An election proposal must be made available on the company's website as set forth in more detail in Sections 127, 126 paragraph 1 and 2 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG), if it is received by the company under the address specified below no later than on Monday, 26 April 2010, 24:00 hours.

We will make counter-motions or election proposals, which we have received in time, available on the Internet under www.k-plus-s.com, if they meet the legal requirements. We will also make any comments by the management available under the aforementioned Internet address. We will announce motions for amendments received in time, if they meet the legal requirements.

Total number of shares and voting rights

At the time the meeting is convened, the company's share capital is divided into 191,400,000 no-par value shares with the same number of voting rights.

The company holds 200,000 treasury shares at the time the meeting is convened, from which it does not derive any voting rights. The company will sell and transfer these treasury shares prior to the Annual General Meeting (mainly to employees in connection with the employee stock program), which is why the company will no longer hold any treasury shares at the time of the Annual General Meeting.
