In May, at the request of shareholders, 350,000 Class A shares were converted to Class B shares. The total number of votes in the company thereafter amounts to 1,566,320,364.
The total number of registered shares in the company amounts to 705,110,094, of which 95,690,030 are Class A shares and 609,420,064 are Class B shares.
