Organizational Information

BASF saves costs in Europe and the services at Annual Shareholders’ Meeting were reduced as well. Due to this reason no factory tours were offered on the day of the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting. Interested parties will have the opportunity to take part in a free guided tour through the exhibition of the Visitor Center in Ludwigshafen and/or a factory tour on other dates (according to the adapted offer), registration options available at: www.basf.de/visitorcenter.

BASF provided around 1.650 free car parking spaces: Around 650 free car parking spaces were located in the underground car park Rosengarten. Around 1.000 free car parking spaces were found in the BASF car park Z 215 (entrance via Anilinstraße, bus stop Carl-Bosch-Straße) in Ludwigshafen.

On the day of the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting, free shuttle buses run from 7:30 a.m. both from BASF car park Z 215 (entrance via Anilinstraße, bus stop Carl-Bosch-Straße) in Ludwigshafen to Rosengarten and from Mannheim Central Station to Rosengarten.

Refreshments were served in the foyer. We kindly asked that food and drinks not be brought into the assembly rooms. Smoking is prohibited throughout the building. Please refrain from bringing outside food and beverages as these cannot be taken into the venue and will have to be discarded at the security checkpoint.

It is also possible to exercise your voting rights on the day of the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting via the online service.

If you are unable to exercise your voting rights, you have the following options for granting a proxy to a third party:

a) Print out and fill in the proxy authorization form and give this to a representative of your choice, or

b) Complete the proxy authorization form attached to the admission ticket email and forward it to a representative of your choice.
This proxy must clearly identify the purpose (representation of voting rights), the shareholder/appointer of the proxy and the authorized representative (e.g., by giving the name and place of residence of the shareholder).

You can forward the email with the admission tickets to another email address at any time. The admission tickets are labeled “Admission ticket 1 of 2” and “Admission ticket 2 of 2” so that you can tell them apart. 

If an admission ticket is to be used by a person whose name does not appear on the ticket, this person requires an authorization in addition to the admission ticket.
