With regard to the HHLA Group’s risk and opportunity position, the statements made in the Management Report section of the 2018 Annual Report continue to apply – unless otherwise indicated in this report – with the exception of the risk assessment of pension obligations. Risks from pension obligations have been significantly reduced as any increase in pension provisions from the recognition of further entitlements beyond the previous regulations no longer constitutes a risk. The court found in HHLA’s favour.
The risks identified still do not threaten the ongoing existence of the Group. As far as the future is concerned, there are also no discernible risks at present that could jeopardise the continued existence of the company.
