Explanation: rechtsgültuige Vertregung = legally valid representation
At shareholders meetings the shares are represented either by their owners or by an "authorised representative" of the owner (Vertretungsberechtigter, Vertretungsbevollmächtigter). The type of representation of the share capital attending is then reported to the shareholders meeting.
