Questions about the Forest Share

What is a BaumInvest share?

BaumInvest shares are “registered shares with restricted transferability”, which are not traded on the stock exchange. Several shares are certificated and combined in so-called collective certificates. These collective documents have a number and are kept in a collective certificate register.

Where and how can I purchase shares?

Within the context of a capital increase:
BaumInvest AG issues new shares in the context of capital raises. These shares are first offered to existing shareholders within the scope of the subscription right. Shares that are not purchased by existing shareholders can be purchased by new shareholders. You can find out whether and when a capital increase of BaumInvest AG is possible on our website.

How can I sell my shares?

If you want to sell your BaumInvest shares, you can do so on the so-called secondary market. For legal reasons, BaumInvest AG is not in a position to act as a direct intermediary between prospective share sellers and prospective share buyers. In addition, the sale between two parties entails risks for both parties with regard to payment and transfer of ownership. We are pleased therefore to have gained an experienced, competent, secure and transparent partner in Umweltfinanz GmbH in the trading of non-listed shares. On its portal umweltaktienhandel.de Umweltfinanz GmbH maintains a price list for unlisted shares from the environmental sector. Here you will find supply and demand for unlisted shares and other sustainable investments – in open order books without proprietary trading interest. The company acts as a trustee, which receives the payment from the buyer and in return releases the transfer of ownership of the shares. Click here for the BaumInvest AG order book.

What effect does the dollar exchange rate have on my investment?

A weak dollar rate is advantageous for land purchases and ongoing reforestation and maintenance costs. However, a strong dollar is advantageous for later harvest yields and the associated distributions. We assume that if the dollar depreciates further, timber prices will not remain pegged to the dollar course. It is important to know that the market for timber, as well as for other raw materials, does not depend on a specific currency. It depends on supply and demand.

What kind of control do I have over my investment as an investor?

BaumInvest AG is a stock corporation under German law and is therefore required to maintain a balance sheet. This means that annual financial statements have to be presented every year and a general meeting is convened to which all shareholders are invited. The shareholders elect a supervisory board from their ranks which represents their interests vis-à-vis the management and which exercises far-reaching control functions. In addition, the shareholders are continuously informed about business developments. And they have the opportunity to participate in investor trips to visit the reforestation projects in Costa Rica.

Is there an obligation to make additional contributions or a loss sharing?

No. There is neither an obligation to make additional contributions nor a loss sharing. As a shareholder, you bear the maximum risk up to the amount of the purchase price for which you acquired the share(s).
