Tele Columbus AG successfully implements capital increase

- Rights offering concluded

- Inflow of funds in a gross amount of approximately EUR 475 million expected

- Share capital of the Company increased by EUR 146,109,887.00 to EUR 273,666,138.00

Berlin, 12 May 2021. Tele Columbus AG (the "Company") (ISIN: DE000TCAG172, WKN: TCAG17), one of Germany's leading fibre network operators, has successfully implemented the capital increase by way of a rights offering resolved on 17 April 2021 and thus concluded the rights offering. All offered shares were either subscribed for based on the exercise of subscription rights or based on the acquisition of unsubscribed shares by Kublai GmbH, the majority shareholder of the Company. The gross proceeds generated by the capital increase will amount to approximately EUR 475 million. As previously announced, the gross proceeds will be used in particular to achieve a sustainable capital structure of the Company and to further implement its Fibre Champion strategy.

 

During the subscription period from 27 April 2021 to 10 May 2021, 139,411,373 new shares were subscribed based on subscription rights. A further 6,698,514 shares, for which subscription rights were not exercised, were acquired by Kublai GmbH, the majority shareholder of the Company, pursuant to a backstop agreement dated 21 December 2020 between the Company and Kublai GmbH, which was concluded in connection with the public takeover offer by Kublai GmbH.

The capital increase was entered into the commercial register of the Company today and thereby became effective. The share capital of the Company was thus increased by EUR 146,109,887.00 from EUR 127,556,251.00 to EUR 273,666,138.00 through the issuance of 146,109,887 new registered no-par value ordinary shares.

The new shares are entitled to dividends as of 1 January 2021, while the existing shares of the Company are entitled to dividends for the financial year as of 1 January 2020. The new shares will therefore initially have a different ISIN, WKN and ticker symbol than the existing shares. Following the Company's annual general meeting resolving on the distribution of dividends for the financial year ending 31 December 2020 (if any), currently scheduled for 28 May 2021, the new shares will be assigned the same ISIN, WKN and ticker symbol as the existing shares.

The admission to trading of the new shares on the regulated market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange is expected to take place on 14 May 2021. The delivery of the new shares to the custodian banks is planned for 17 May 2021. Shareholders of the Company who have participated in the capital increase will subsequently receive the acquired shares in their depositary accounts. The first day of trading in the new shares is expected to occur on 17 May 2021.
