Compleo Charging Solutions AG resolves subscription rights capital increase against cash contribution for up to 973,957 new shares
Dortmund, November 25, 2021 - The Management Board of Compleo Charging Solutions AG ("Company") today resolved, with the consent of the Supervisory Board of the Company, to increase the share capital of the Company against cash contribution from currently EUR 3,895,828.00 by up to EUR 973,957.00 to up to EUR 4,869,785.00 by issuing up to 973,957 new no-par value ordinary bearer shares ("new shares") with subscription rights for the shareholders of the Company and by making partial use of the existing Authorized Capital 2020 ("capital increase"). As far as the Company is aware, the members of the Management Board and those members of the Supervisory Board, who directly or indirectly hold existing shares in the Company, plan to exercise the respective subscription rights, at least in part, and/or to participate in the rump placement (as defined below).
The new shares, each with a pro rata amount in the share capital of the Company of EUR 1.00 and full entitlement to a dividend as of January 1, 2021, shall be offered to the shareholders of the Company - subject to the approval of a securities prospectus ("prospectus") by the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (Bundesanstalt für Finanzdienstleistungsaufsicht, "BaFin") and the publication of the prospectus - by way of indirect subscription rights during the subscription period expected to begin on November 26, 2021 (including) and end on December 10, 2021 (including) ("subscription period") in accordance with the terms and conditions of the subscription offer and on the basis of the prospectus. The subscription price amounts to EUR 56.00 per new share ("subscription price"). The subscription offer is expected to be published in the Federal Gazette on or around November 25, 2021. The subscription ratio has been set at 4:1, i.e. four (4) existing shares entitle to subscribe for one (1) new share at the subscription price. It is expected that the existing shares will be listed on the Regulated Market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange and the sub-segment of the Regulated Market with additional post-admission obligations (Prime Standard) "ex-subscription rights" from November 26, 2021. Trading of the subscription rights (ISIN DE000A3MQBQ7 / WKN A3MQBQ) for the new shares is expected to commence on November 26, 2021 (including) and end on December 7, 2021 (including).
New shares for which no subscription rights have been exercised during the subscription period ("rump shares") will be offered to selected qualified investors by way of an international private placement at a price not lower than the subscription price ("rump placement"). If not all of the rump shares can be placed, the volume of the capital increase will be reduced to reflect the aggregate number of new shares subscribed for in the rights offering and placed in the rump placement. 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 December 16, 2021. The Company has agreed with the underwriters on a 6-month lock-up period with market standard conditions.
The Company expects gross proceeds from the capital increase of up to approximately EUR 54.5 million. The Company intends to use the net issue proceeds from the capital increase in connection with the acquisition of innogy eMobility Solutions GmbH, Dortmund ("ieMS"), published in an ad hoc announcement on October 26, 2021, from the E.ON subsidiary innogy SE, in particular (i) to finance the preliminary cash purchase price agreed with innogy SE and payable upon closing of the transaction; and (ii) for measures to integrate ieMS into the Compleo Group and further develop the product portfolio in the fiscal years 2022 and 2023.
The public offering of the new shares in Germany will be made exclusively by means of and on the basis of the prospectus, which will be made available, among other places, on the Company's website (www.compleo-cs.com) in the section "Investor Relations - Publications." Approval is expected today.
