Possibility of capital increase in companies with privileged founding rights?

In a current decision, the Supreme Court made clear that the capital of a company with privileged founding is possible with the simultaneous addition of a new partner. However, the privileges may no longer be used in this step. Accordingly, only the capital contribution and no foundation-privileged capital contribution must be entered in the commercial register for these new shareholders.
