TeamViewer intends to convert into European stock corporation (SE)
Goppingen, 14 March 2022: At its meeting on 11 March 2022, the Supervisory Board of TeamViewer AG approved the proposal of the Management Board to prepare the conversion of the company into a European stock corporation (Societas Europaea, or SE) under the name TeamViewer SE. The shareholders of TeamViewer AG will vote on the conversion into the new legal form at the Annual General Meeting on 17 May 2022.
Oliver Steil, CEO TeamViewer AG: "TeamViewer has grown continuously and strongly in recent years and has developed into a global technology company. Our solutions for workplace digitalization along the entire value chain are needed by companies around the globe. Meanwhile, our employees are active in around 20 locations worldwide. By converting to an SE, we are underlining TeamViewer's claim to be a leading software provider from Europe and giving ourselves an internationally recognized legal form that is appropriate for our global presence and size."
TeamViewer has placed a particular focus on Europe to develop its software in accordance with the highest data protection and security standards. In addition to various locations in Germany, the company has been very successfully operating an engineering hub in Ioannina, Greece, for several years, with a team of around 50 employees. Last year, TeamViewer also expanded its presence in further EU member states and has added new subsidiaries in Austria and Portugal.
TeamViewer will maintain its dualistic management system as a Societas Europaea with the Management Board as the executive body and the Supervisory Board as the oversight body. The change of legal form will not affect the composition and responsibilities of the two bodies. In the future, TeamViewer Group employees across the company's European locations will be involved in cross-border corporate matters even more strongly and institutionalized. For this purpose, a procedure for information and consultation in cross-border matters of TeamViewer SE will be agreed upon with representatives of the employees within the framework of the legal requirements. The headquarter of the company will remain in Goppingen, Germany.
Shareholders of TeamViewer AG will automatically become shareholders of TeamViewer SE as a result of the planned conversion. The conversion will not have any effect on the legal status and the trading of the TeamViewer shares on the stock exchange.
