Wintershall Dea, a European independent gas and oil company, has converted its legal form from a limited liability company (Gesellschaft mit beschränkter Haftung – GmbH) to a joint-stock company (Aktiengesellschaft – AG), under the company name Wintershall Dea AG. This happens as another long-planned step agreed by its shareholders at the time of the merger.
The change became effective on 26 July 2021 with registration of the legal entity in its new legal form in the Commercial Register of the Local Court of Lüneburg (Germany).
Pursuant to section 13 Commercial Register Ordinance (Handelsregisterverordnung) the company Wintershall Dea AG was registered under a new commercial register number (HRB 20 98 23).
Despite this registration under a new commercial register number, the company’s legal identity is preserved and not affected. The composition of the management board remains unchanged.
