Objectives of the risk management system
Software AG’s primary goal is to generate long-term, profitable growth, accompanied by a steady increase in enterprise value. To that end, we combine established, stable business activities with an involvement in promising new market segments and regions. We strive for balance between opportunities and risks and take on risks only if the business activities associated with them have a high probability of enhancing the value of Software AG.
It is always a prerequisite that we can evaluate risks and that they remain manageable and controllable. In addition, we systematically monitor risks from ongoing business, for example, by keeping a constant eye on product and service quality and managing exchange-rate risks.
