II. Notice of beneficial owner of shares

1 Any person who alone or by agreement with third parties acquires shares in a company whose participation rights are not listed on a stock exchange, and thus reaches or exceeds the threshold of 25 per cent of the share capital or voting rights must within one month give notice to the company of the first name and surname and the address of the natural person for whom it is ultimately acting (the beneficial owner).

2 If the shareholder is a legal entity or partnership, each natural person that controls the shareholder in analogous application of Article 963 paragraph 2 must be recorded as a beneficial owner. If there is no such person, the shareholder must give notice of this to the company.

3 If the shareholder is a company whose participation rights are listed on a stock exchange, if the shareholder is controlled by such a company in accordance with Article 963 paragraph 2, or if the shareholder controls such a company in this sense, it must only give notice of this fact and provide details of the company’s name and registered office.

4 The shareholder must give notice to the company within three months of any change to the first name or surname or to the address of the beneficial owner.

5 The obligation to give notice does not apply if the bearer shares are organised as intermediated securities and deposited with a custodian in Switzerland or entered in the main register. The company shall designate the custodian.
