CECONOMY AG: CECONOMY AG reports on the status of talks concerning a
possible transaction with respect to the Russian business of Media-Saturn

14-Jun-2018 / 18:12 CET/CEST
Disclosure of an inside information acc. to Article 17 MAR of the Regulation
(EU) No 596/2014, transmitted by DGAP - a service of EQS Group AG.
The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.

Media-Saturn-Holding GmbH (MSH), a majority shareholding of CECONOMY AG
(CECONOMY), is in advanced discussions with a company of SAFMAR Group
(SAFMAR) relating to the acquisition of a 15% stake in publicly listed PAO
M.video (M.video), the leading Russian consumer electronics retailer, by MSH
and the transfer of its entire loss-making Russian MediaMarkt business to
SAFMAR. MSH would pay a purchase price in the amount of approx. EUR 258m
(based on today's exchange rates). Depending on the future development of
certain financial ratios of M.video the cash purchase price may be reduced
by an amount of up to EUR 86m (based on today's exchange rates). The
purchase price would be subject to further customary adjustment mechanisms
which might result in an increase or reduction of the purchase price. The
contemplated transaction would entirely eliminate the operative losses of
the Russian business of MSH and would hence be in line with the communicated
strategic agenda of CECONOMY. At the same time would the contemplated
transaction enable MSH to participate in the future value development of

A non-binding agreement on material cornerstones of the contemplated
transaction has been reached.

On the basis of the available figures per 31 March 2018, the transaction
would likely have a one-time negative impact on CECONOMY's net result for
the current financial year 2017/18 of a low three-digit-million-Euro amount.

Neither has a binding agreement between MSH and SAFMAR concerning the
transaction been entered into nor have MSH and CECONOMY taken a decision
whether the transaction shall actually be pursued. CECONOMY will inform the
capital market and the public about the progress of this matter in
compliance with the applicable legal requirements.
