SHOP APOTHEKE EUROPE N.V. ENDS DISCUSSIONS AND ANNOUNCES CLEAN-UP OF ITS EUR 135 MILLION 4.5% CONVERTIBLE BONDS DUE 2023.

Venlo, 6 October 2020. Following the announcements published on 23 September 2020 and 30 September 2020, the negotiations between SHOP APOTHEKE EUROPE N.V. ("Shop Apotheke") and holders (the "Bondholders") of its EUR 135 million 4.5% Convertible Bonds due 2023 (ISIN: DE000A19Y072) (the "Bonds") have resulted in intentions to convert corresponding to more than 98% of the total outstanding amount of EUR 135 million. Conversion notices processed by the conversion agent amount to around 90% of the EUR 135 million issued. Shares for the delivery to converting Bondholders will be issued by Shop Apotheke in the coming weeks in line with the Terms and Conditions of the Bonds.

Due to the successful progress, Shop Apotheke is ending its further negotiations on a potential incentivized conversion effective immediately and will shortly make use of the clean-up call in accordance with the Terms and Conditions of the Bonds, publishing a notice to that effect on its website. Shop Apotheke will make a further announcement once all Bonds have been converted or redeemed.
