NOT FOR RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, IN OR INTO: UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, AUSTRALIA, CANADA, JAPAN
Today the General Partner of CompuGroup Medical SE & Co. KGaA (the Company) resolved, with the approval of the Supervisory Board and the Joint Committee of the Company, to increase the share capital of the Company (ISIN: DE000A288904) by up to 515,226 new shares (approx. 0.97% of current share capital) and to sell up to 4,806,709 treasury shares of the Company (approx. 9.03% of current share capital). The subscription right of the shareholders is excluded pursuant to Section 186 (3) Sentence 4 in conjunction with Section 278 (3) of the German Stock Corporation Act.
The capital increase will be carried out against contribution in cash and by partial utilisation of the authorised capital provided for under Section 4 (3) of the Company's articles of association. The share capital of the Company shall be increased from EUR 53,219,350 to up to 53,734,576 EUR by issuance of up to 515,226 new registered non-par value shares. The new shares carry the same rights as the existing shares and are entitled to dividends for the fiscal year 2020. Following their issuance they will be included in the existing listing of the regulated market as well as simultaneously in the sub-segment of the regulated market with additional post-admission obligations (Prime Standard) on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. The sale of treasury shares will also be carried out against cash consideration.
Therefore, in the course of the capital measure, a total of up to 5,321,935 shares will be offered in an international private placement exclusively to qualified investors by way of an accelerated bookbuilding process ("Accelerated Bookbuilding"), which will commence directly after the publication of this release. The order book will presumably close on 23 June 2020 before the opening of trading, although the Company reserves the right to close the order book at any earlier time. The placement price and the exact number of shares placed will be determined following completion of the placement process. In order to ensure a timely delivery to the investors participating in the offer, GT1 Vermögensverwaltung GmbH, the investment company of the major shareholder Mr Frank Gotthardt, makes available to the placing credit institutions by way of a share loan free of charge and until the registration of the capital increase with the commercial register a number of shares corresponding to the capital increase for the purpose of the placement.
The Company has agreed to a lock-up of 90 days, subject to market standard exemptions.
The expected net proceeds from the capital measure serve to strengthen the equity base of CompuGroup Medical-Group and provide it with financial flexibility for the implementation of its strategy to further organically and, if opportunities arise, dynamically grow through mergers and acquisitions.
