"On monday evening i exceeded the reportable threshold of 15 percent," the entrepreneur told the "frankfurter allgemeine zeitung". But the increase was "not a signal to vote against anything at the annual general meeting," thiele stressed. He criticized, however, that lufthansa boss carsten spohr had not named the alternatives discussed with the federal government.
"The board has to put these on the table," said thiele. "I appreciate mr. Spohr, but i am not satisfied with his statement that everything has been checked and that his own ideas could not be implemented. I think they could have negotiated more intensively."
The entrepreneur evaded the question about his voting behavior at the annual shareholders’ meeting several times. Thiele was also reluctant to answer the question of whether he would take action against a possible resolution of the annual general meeting. "I’m not there yet," he said. "But i now see an opportunity to raise the issue once again."
