SFC Energy AG: Capital increase successfully placed

Brunnthal/Munich, 28 July 2022 – SFC Energy AG (F3C:DE, ISIN: DE0007568578, “SFC” or the “Company”) has successfully placed its capital increase with subscription rights announced on 11 July 2022. Subsequent to the prior rump placement announcement, SFC Energy AG confirms the final results of the subscription offer. Subscription rights for 2,044,314 new shares were exercised, which corresponds to 70.6% of the up to 2,893,948 offered new shares. Additionally, 849,634 new shares not subscribed for previously during the subscription period were placed at a price of EUR 19.50 per new share (rump placement). The final gross proceeds from the capital increase amount to EUR 56.4 million. SFC intends to use the net proceeds from the capital increase for regional and technological expansion, acceleration of R&D activities and inorganic growth opportunities.

Dr Peter Podesser, CEO of SFC, comments on the successful placement of the capital increase: "We would like to thank all investors who participated in this capital increase to support our company. In a volatile capital markets environment, this is a strong sign of confidence. These funds give us the necessary strength and flexibility to take targeted advantage of opportunities in our markets and to accelerate our growth sustainably."

The Management Board of SFC has determined the final number of new shares from the capital increase from the existing authorized capital to be 2,893,948. The share capital will therefore be increased from currently EUR 14,469,743.00 to EUR 17,363,691.00 by issuing 2,893,948 new ordinary bearer shares with no-par value (no-par value shares). The new shares will carry full dividend rights from 1 January 2022.

In order to take effect, the capital increase needs to be registered with the commercial register of the local court (Amtsgericht) of Munich, Germany, which was applied for yesterday. Trading of the new shares on the regulated market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange and the sub-segment of the Regulated Market with additional post-admission obligations (Prime Standard) is expected to commence on or around 1 August 2022.

The Company and all members of the Management Board will be subject to a 180-day lock-up period after introduction to trading of all the new shares, subject to customary exceptions.
