Fast exit from the Nexive Group with two-digit Return on Invested Capital (ROIC)

- Mutares sells 80% stake in Nexive Group to Poste Italiane

- Fastest exit in Mutares' corporate history

- Significant increase in value in only 7 months since acquisition by Mutares despite difficult market environment

Munich/Milan, 29 January 2021 - Mutares SE & Co. KGaA (ISIN: DE000A2NB650) has sold its 80% stake in Milan-based Nexive Group S.r.l. to Poste Italiane S.p.A.. Nexive is the No. 2 in the Italian postal and parcel market.

Mutares had only acquired the 80% majority in Nexive Group in July 2020. The seller at the time, PostNL, initially acquired a 20% minority stake, which was also sold to Poste Italiane today. Mutares and PostNL have coordinated intensively and successfully throughout the exit process with the aim of achieving a synchronized sale.

Nexive was severely impacted by the very difficult economic environment in the first half of 2020. However, since the acquisition by Mutares in summer 2020, the company has been on a significant recovery path. In the short time since the acquisition, Mutares has initiated numerous measures for a successful turnaround, which are now reflected in an attractive exit price.

The quick resale of the Nexive shares to Poste Italiane takes advantage of a limited window of opportunity in Italian legislation. This legislation allows Poste Italiane, under certain conditions and measures, to set forth its acquisition and consolidation plans for the Italian postal and parcel services.

The increase in value achieved with the fastest exit in Mutares' corporate history will be recognized in the Mutares SE & Co. KGaA income statement of the financial year 2020.
