*GRENKE AG resolves on cash capital increase with an issue volume of up to
EUR 200 million*
*Baden-Baden, June 13, 2018*
The Board of Directors of GRENKE AG (ISIN: DE000A161N30), with the approval
of the Supervisory Board, today resolved on a capital increase against cash
contribution with an issue volume of up to EUR 200 million under the
exclusion of current shareholders' subscription rights (this corresponds to
approx. 4.3% of the current share capital based on the Xetra closing price
of June 12, 2018). The Company's share capital shall be increased through
the partial use of the Company's authorised capital that was resolved on by
the Annual General Meeting on May 03, 2018. The Company will issue new
no-par value registered shares with dividend entitlement for the fiscal year
2018 and bearing rights equal to those of the existing outstanding shares of
the Company. The new shares will be offered to qualified investors as
defined by Section 2 (6) WpPG outside of the United States of America under
Regulation S of the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended in a private
placement by way of an accelerated bookbuilding offering. The private
placement will commence on June 13, 2018 and is expected to end on June 14,
2018. The Company reserves the right to close the order book at any time.
The placement price will be determined by the Board of Directors after
conclusion of the accelerated bookbuilding offering and is expected to be
announced on June 14, 2018.
The new shares shall be admitted to trading on the regulated market of the
Frankfurt Stock Exchange without a prospectus with simultaneous admission to
the sub-segment of the regulated market with additional post-admission
obligations (Prime Standard). The new shares will be included in the current
listing as per June 20, 2018.
GRENKE AG intends to use the net proceeds from the capital increase to
finance the Company's further growth in its core markets and successful
internationalisation strategy. In light of the envisaged strong growth, the
capital increase is expected to support the very strong capital base and
maintain the equity ratio in the long term over 16%.
