Axel Springer completes transformation into a European Company

To press release overview

The transformation of Axel Springer AG into a European Company (Societas Europaea/SE) has been completed. The new legal form becomes formally effective today with its entry in the Commercial Register.

The new legal form underlines and facilitates the company's European and international market orientation.

Axel Springer SE will continue to be managed by a two-tier board structure comprising the Management Board and the Supervisory Board. The rights of shareholders and employees also remain unaffected by the transformation. The company’s headquarters remains in Berlin.

The transformation was decided upon at the Annual General Meeting on April 24, 2013, following the submission of the corresponding resolution proposal by the Management Board and the Supervisory Board.
