Corporate Management and Control

                Corporate Governance Structure
            

Good corporate governance is the basis for our decision-making and control processes and comprises responsible, value-based management and monitoring focused on long-term success, goal-oriented and efficient cooperation between our Management and Supervisory Boards, respect for the interests of our shareholders and employees, transparency and responsibility in all our entrepreneurial decisions and an appropriate risk management system.

The fundamental elements of Software AG’s corporate governance structure are its two-tier system, with a transparent and effective separation of company management and supervision between the Management Board and the Supervisory Board and the shareholders’ rights of co-administration and supervision at the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting.

                    Supervisory Board Committees
