Bielefeld. The executive board of GILDEMEISTER Aktiengesellschaft immediately called in the German financial supervisory authority (BaFin) on Thursday, 17 January 2008, to investigate the recent GILDEMEISTER share price movements.
The company has a strong interest in determining who has been influencing the stock market since Tuesday, 15 January 2008. The investigation carried out by the securities regulatory commission should provide information if there is any evidence of share price manipulation or insider trading.
