Dear International Cooperation and Development,

Thank you for your email. I am happy to assist you in providing more information. The company has been listed in the EU transparency register at https://ec.europa.eu/transparencyregiste... and you can find the names of some of their representatives in this list. Since a complete list of representatives is unavailable, I would like to emphasise that this request should not just cover the people listed in this entry.

The company was founded in 2004, the timeframe should not extend beyond this date.

Please indicate if more information is required.

Yours faithfully,

Mathias Schindler
