NOT FOR DIRECT OR INDIRECT PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION, EITHER IN FULL OR IN PART, INTO OR WITHIN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, AUSTRALIA, CANADA, OR JAPAN OR ANY OTHER COUNTRIES IN WHICH THIS WOULD CONSTITUTE AN INFRINGEMENT OF THE PERTINENT LAWS OF THOSE COUNTRIES. Cologne, July 2, 2024 – The Board of Management of DEUTZ AG (ISIN DE0006305006) has today, with the approval of the Supervisory Board, resolved to carry out a capital increase against cash contributions – with the exclusion of pre-emption rights – by using part of the existing authorized capital. Hereto, the share capital of DEUTZ AG is to be increased, by up to 10 %, to up to 138,761,914 no-par-value shares by issuing up to 12,614,719 new no-par-value bearer shares. The new shares will carry full dividend rights for the financial year from January 1, 2024. Placement of the shares will be initiated immediately after the release of this notification. The new shares will be offered for purchase exclusively to institutional investors in a private placement by way of an accelerated bookbuilding process. The placement price, the final number of shares to be issued, and the final gross proceeds will be determined and announced by the Board of Management of DEUTZ AG, with the approval of the Supervisory Board, after completion of the process. The new shares are expected to be admitted to trading in the sub-segment of the regulated market with additional post-admission obligations (Prime Standard) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange as well as in the regulated market of the Duesseldorf Stock Exchange on July 5, 2024 without a prospectus. Trading in the new shares, which will be included in the existing listing of the company’s shares, is intended to commence on July 8, 2024. Delivery of the new shares is expected on July 8, 2024. The aims of the Company’s Dual+ strategy include building up a portfolio that is fit for the future and increasing the resilience of the DEUTZ Group (‘DEUTZ’) by expanding its product ecosystem. To achieve this, DEUTZ is not only pursuing organic growth but also taking a buy-and-build approach. In this context, it recently signed an agreement to acquire genset manufacturer Blue Star Power Systems.[1] The net proceeds from the capital increase will give DEUTZ the financial flexibility to be able to continue investing in growth by acquisition once it has paid the purchase price. As part of the transaction, DEUTZ AG is committing to a lock-up, i.e. the Company will not, subject to the usual market exceptions, issue any further shares or financial instruments that can be converted into shares or carry out a further capital increase within a six-month period. Commerzbank and M.M.Warburg & CO are acting as Joint Global Coordinators & Joint Bookrunners in this transaction.
