Interim Statement January – September 2023

Risk and opportunity report

With regard to the HHLA Group’s risk and opportunity position, the statements made in the 2022 combined management report continue to apply, unless otherwise indicated in this report. 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.

The opportunities and risks associated with a strategic investment by Mediterranean Shipping Company S.A. (MSC) are still being evaluated at the time of reporting. Consequently, no conclusive assessment can be made at present in this regard, due also to ongoing negotiations with shareholders. Significant events and transactions
