Frankfurt am Main / Berlin, June 11, 2012 - Today, the management board of Deutsche Wohnen AG, with the approval of the supervisory board, resolved on a capital increase against cash contributions with shareholders' subscription rights. The Company's share capital shall be increased through the exercise of the new authorized capital in the amount of EUR 51,150,000 resolved by the general shareholders' meeting on June 6, 2012 and entered into the commercial register on June 8, 2012 by up to EUR 43,842,858 to up to EUR 146,142,858 against contribution in cash. For this purpose, up to 43,842,858 new no par value ordinary bearer shares shall be issued by the Company. The new shares carry full dividend rights as of January 1, 2012. The new shares will be offered to shareholders for indirect subscription at a ratio of 7:3 at a subscription price for each new share yet to be determined. Seven existing shares of Deutsche Wohnen entitle the holders to subscribe for three new shares. Subject to the approval of the prospectus by the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (Bundesanstalt für Finanzdienstleistungsaufsicht - BaFin) and the publication of the approved prospectus, the subscription period is expected to begin on June 12, 2012 and end on June 25, 2012. Any new share not subscribed for by the end of the subscription period will be offered by way of a private placement. The management board, with the approval of the supervisory board, will determine the subscription price of the new shares of the subscription offer, the offer price of the new shares of a potential private placement as well as the final issue volume by way of separate resolutions.
The subscription price per new share is expected to be set at the latest after the close of trading on June 19, 2012, taking into account the volume-weighted average price for the bearer shares of Deutsche Wohnen AG on the electronic trading system XETRA on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange from the beginning of the subscription period on June 12, 2012, until at the latest the close of trading on June 19, 2012, less a discount to be determined by the management board of the Company with the approval of the supervisory board. The size of the discount will take into consideration an estimate of the volatility of the price of the Company's shares at the time of pricing, as well as market risks specific to the Company. The Company reserves the right, in particular in the event of unfavorable market developments, to terminate the subscription offer.
The Company is targeting to receive gross proceeds from the capital increase from EUR 425 million up to EUR 475 million. The Company intends to use approximately 75% of the net proceeds for financing the envisaged acquisition of the BauBeCon Group and the remainder for complementary acquisitions, in which the Company is in advanced or promising negotiations, as well as for general corporate purposes. Subject to the approval and publication of the prospectus, the subscription rights (ISIN DE000A1PG9Y0 / WKN A1PG9Y) for the new shares will be traded during the period from June 12, 2012, up to and including June 21, 2012, on the regulated market (regulierter Markt) (XETRA and XETRA Frankfurt Specialist) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. The Company's existing shares will be quoted as 'ex-subscription rights' (ex Bezugsrecht) on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange; such quotation is expected to commence on June 12, 2012.
The new shares are expected to be included in the existing quotation for the Company's listed shares in the sub-segment of the regulated market with additional post-admission obligations (Prime Standard) on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange on June 28, 2012.
Credit Suisse and UBS Investment Bank act as Joint Global Coordinators and Joint Bookrunners for the capital increase. The Co-Lead Managers are Bayerische Landesbank, DZ Bank AG Deutsche Zentral-Genossenschaftsbank, Frankfurt am Main, Kempen & Co N.V. and UniCredit Bank AG.
