German term or phrase: ad 4:
This is from the minutes of a Swiss shareholders' meeting:

For each section, there is a heading,

ad 4:

ad 1:

ad 6:

etc.

I am totally unfamiliar with this abbreviation.

Could anyone help?

Thanks.

Explanation:
I suppose it is an abbreviation meaning "Tagesordnungspunkt", it is the shareholders' meeting and this could be a possibility, but I can't tell you what this abbreviation actually stands for, it could be Latin, but the meaning is "Tagesordnungspunkt"

just a guess


Explanation:
This is a bit of a stab in the dark, but could it be that this 'ad' is Latin and the equivalent of the German 'zu 1', etc.

Having said that, I've never found a satisfactory translation for 'zu' in this context either )-:

The fact that it's written in lower case and with no dots makes me think it may be a word, rather than an abbrevation. Of course, I could be way off the mark! Stranger things have happened ....

HTH (and doesn't just confuse the issue!)

zu 4/ad 4


Explanation:
Just to make it clear.

You could use "ad 4" in a German context as well. References found, I have come across it several times myself ...
To make it clear, what is meant, you may say "zu 1".
