THE EVOLUTION OF L'AUBIER DERIVES FROM THE INITIATIVE OF THOSE WHO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR IT, BUT IT IS ONLY THE RECOGNITION AND SUPPORT OF A GROWING CIRCLE OF PARTNERS THAT HAS ALLOW US TO GIVE OUR INITIATIVE CONCRETE EXPRESSION.
You want to partner with a company which places the human being and his environment at the heart of its activities, in keeping with the spirit of our time.
You can invest a specific amount that you no longer need in exchange for immediate benefits.

The voting share capital
The voting share capital of L'AUBIER Ltd is CHF 4,500,000.-. It is structured to protect the future and independence of the company. One tenth of this capital consists of shares with a nominal value of CHF 100.- and represents a majority of the votes. They are not for sale and are exclusively reserved for our small ‘public benefit’ association, whose members are leaders and managers of the initiative. The majority vote is thus immune from speculation and does not belong to any private person. The other nine tenths of the capital consists of shares of a nominal value of CHF 1,000.- and are freely available and widely distributed among more than 700 shareholders. To keep the majority of votes for our ‘public benefit’ association, a charge of CHF 100.- is added to every share of CHF 1,000.-.
The full share price of CHF 1,111.- includes 1% federal stamp duty. The shares of L'AUBIER Ltd are not publicly traded. They have a tax value of about one third their nominal value. They can be resold at any time to a person of your choice, but the company itself cannot redeem them. Where applicable, however, we can help you find a new buyer at a price to be agreed. At all times, shares may also be donated to our tax-exempt foundation.
