2PLEASE NOTE: The repurchase price of the lithium carbonate (i.e. the amount paid by HWS AG to you for the repurchase of your lithium carbonate) is shown accordingly on the GLP Project website and is subject to daily fluctuations. The fluctuations are based on the one hand on constantly changing exchange rate differences between different currencies, as lithium carbonate is purchased from suppliers all over the world, and on the changing, currently valid world market prices for lithium carbonate, which are determined by the supply and demand for lithium carbonate in accordance with the current market situation. HWS AG has no influence on these price fluctuations and accordingly passes them on directly to the customer, which is reflected in the selling and purchasing price. However, HWS AG reserves the right to retain a three percent management fee on the repurchase price compared to the sales price (equivalent to the amount for which you can purchase a Lithium Investment Unit from HWS AG).

The archived documents can be made available to you accordingly at any time on request.
