Wacker Chemie AG’s business performance is essentially subject to the same risks and opportunities as those facing the WACKER Group. In principle, Wacker Chemie AG’s exposure to risks at joint ventures, associates and subsidiaries depends on the size of its stakes in the respective entities. Through our subsidiaries and holdings, we could face impairments arising from legal or contractual contingencies (especially financing). These contingencies are explained in the Wacker Chemie AG Notes.
As the parent company of the WACKER Group, Wacker Chemie AG is integrated in the groupwide risk management system.
