Company Description (as filed with the SEC)
AIXTRON SE was incorporated as a German limited liability corporation in 1983 and converted to a stock corporation under the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany in 1997. In 2010, AIXTRON converted from a German stock corporation ("Aktiengesellschaft" or "AG") to a stock corporation in the form of a European Company ("Societas Europaea" or "SE"). As such, AIXTRON SE is subject not only to the German stock corporation law, but also to the superseding European SE regulations and the German SE Implementation Act ("SE-Ausführungsgesetz"). As a result of such conversion, AIXTRON will continue to be treated to a large extent like a German stock corporation, including with respect to capital measures, shareholders' meetings and accounting. AIXTRON is headquartered in Herzogenrath, Germany and has wholly-owned subsidiaries in the United Kingdom, China, Japan, South Korea, Sweden, Taiwan and the United States. ... More ...
