The new shares will be offered for purchase to institutional investors in a private placement by way of an accelerated bookbuilding process, which starts immediately following the publication of this disclosure. The Company will reserve the right to close the order book at any time.
The free float will rise by the capital increase from 32.8% to 38.9% and thereby increase the market liquidity of the STEICO SE share.
