§ 51a Right to information and right of inspection
(1) The directors must without undue delay provide each shareholder, upon their request, with information on the company’s affairs and allow them to inspect the books and company documents.
(2) The directors may refuse to provide information or permit inspection if there is a concern that the shareholder may make use thereof for non-company purposes and thereby put the company or an associated company at a not insignificant disadvantage. Refusal shall require a resolution of the shareholders.
(3) These provisions may not be derogated by the articles of association.
