Due to extensive corporate restructuring of the Volkswagen Financial Services subgroup as of September 1, 2017, Volkswagen Financial Services AG is no longer an addressee or obligor within the meaning of the German Money Laundering Act and does not have any relevant business for any retail or wholesale customers.
