LayTec GmbH converts into AG

LayTec of Berlin, Germany (which provides in-situ optical metrology systems for thin-film processes) has announced its conversion from LayTec GmbH (a limited liability company) into LayTec AG (Aktiengesellschaft, joint stock corporation) with entry into the commercial register of Berlin/Charlottenburg.

LayTec will continue being a privately owned company. The conversion does not impose any changes on the shareholder structure, which has been stable for many years, says the firm. The first advisory board was elected by the shareholder meeting last October. Its chairman, Dr Markus Weyers (in Berlin), is working with Dr Egbert Woelk (in Boston) and Götz Fischbeck (in Frankfurt/Main) to support and advise LayTec’s CEO & president Dr Thomas Zettler and his board of managers.

LayTec belongs to the 50 fastest-growing technology companies in Germany (according to the ‘Deloitte Fast 50’ ranking for the firm’s growth in 2005–2009). LayTec reckons that conversion into an ‘Aktiengesellschaft’ will give it a wider range of options for further growth and for sharing its success with its employees.
