cash compensation
Explanation:
"Barfindung" must be a typo, there is no such term in German (not in this context anyway). It should read "Barabfindung" (cf section 320 (5) of the German Aktiengesetz) which is a cash compensation to be paid to shareholders.

Alternative option: money compensation (not my preference).
