Porsche welcomes the decision made by the Registration Office in BraunschweigChanges to the VW articles of association turned down
mercial register to become effective. The commercial register based its decision on the fact that such a change to the articles of association can only be passed by the VW Annual General Meeting.
This means that attempts by the State of Lower Saxony to avoid legal clearance by the courts of the issue have been thwarted. The State's application to change the VW articles of association had already been turned down by the Volkswagen AGM on 24 April 2008. In this respect, rescissory actions have already been lodged. The first hearing date has been provisionally set for 6 November 2008.
