The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.

21 September 2020

Barcelona, Spain. Sociedad Anónima Damm ("DAMM", the "Company") announced on 14 September 2020 the invitation by its wholly owned subsidiary Corporación Económica Delta, S.A. (the "Offeror") to the holders ("Bondholders") of its outstanding €200,000,000 1.00 per cent. Secured Guaranteed Exchangeable Bonds due 2023 guaranteed by the Company, exchangeable into existing ordinary shares of Ebro Foods, S.A. (XS1492150260) (the "Bonds"), to offer to sell any and all of their Bonds to the Offeror for cash at the Purchase Price (as defined below) (the "Invitation"). The Company hereby announces the final results of the Invitation.

The Invitation was launched for an overall amount of €200,000,000 in aggregate principal amount of the Bonds. The purchase price that the Offeror will pay for the Bonds validly tendered and accepted for purchase was fixed at €100,000 per €100,000 in principal amount of such Bonds (including all rights to accrued interest thereon) (the "Purchase Price"). No payment (other than as part of the Purchase Price) will be made in respect of the accrued but unpaid interest on the Bonds accepted for purchase pursuant to the Invitation.

The Invitation expired at 5.00 p.m. (CET) on 18 September 2020 (the "Expiration Deadline"). As at the Expiration Deadline, the Offeror had received from Bondholders valid indications to tender their Bonds at the Purchase Price for Bonds representing an aggregate principal amount of €21,100,000, which represents 10.55% of the aggregate principal amount of the Bonds currently outstanding. The Offeror confirms that it will accept for purchase all Bonds validly tendered pursuant to the Invitation.

The settlement is expected to occur on 23 September 2020 (the "Settlement Date"). On the Settlement Date, the Bondholders whose Bonds are accepted for purchase will receive from the Offeror the Purchase Price for the purchased Bonds on a delivery versus payment basis against delivery by them of the purchased Bonds.

UBS Europe SE acted as sole dealer manager in connection with the Invitation (the "Dealer Manager"). Lucid Issuer Services Limited also acted as the Tender Agent with respect to the Invitation.

Bonds purchased by the Offeror pursuant to the Invitation will be cancelled and will not be reissued or resold whereas the Bonds which were not tendered and/or repurchased will remain outstanding following the Settlement Date and continue to be subject to their terms and conditions.

The Invitation is governed by English law.
