SIG Group AG ("SIG")

SIG nimmt EUR 204 Millionen auf zur teilweisen Finanzierung der

Akquisitionen von Scholle IPN und Evergreen Asia

SIG hat durch die Platzierung von 11 Millionen neuen Aktien zum Preis von

CHF 19.40 rund EUR 204 Millionen eingenommen.

Die Kapitalerhöhung führte zu einem Bruttoerlös von CHF 213'400'000. SIG

beabsichtigt, den Nettoerlös aus der Kapitalerhöhung zur teilweisen

Finanzierung der Akquisitionen von Scholle IPN und Evergreen Asia zu

verwenden, die am 1. Februar 2022 bzw. am 5. Januar 2022 angekündigt wurden.

Der verbleibende Teil des Kaufpreises wird durch Barmittel und Fremdkapital

finanziert. Weitere Informationen zu den beiden Akquisitionen sind hier und

hier zu finden.

Samuel Sigrist, CEO von SIG, sagte: «Ich danke den bisherigen und den neu

dazugekommenen Aktionärinnen und Aktionären von SIG, welche die heutige

Kapitalerhöhung zu einem Erfolg gemacht haben. Mit der Akquisition von

Scholle IPN stärkt SIG ihre Position als globale Anbieterin für innovative

und nachhaltige Verpackungen für flüssige Lebensmittel und Getränke. Die

Übernahme von Evergreen Asia ermöglicht einen gezielten Zugang zum

attraktiven und schnell wachsenden Markt für frische Milchprodukte in Asien,

vor allem in China. Die heutige Transaktion stärkt die ausgewogene

Kapitalstruktur von SIG. Wir werden fortfahren, unsere Verschuldung mit

unseren starken und robusten Cashflows zu reduzieren, wie wir das in der

Vergangenheit erfolgreich getan haben.»

Das Aktienkapital der SIG wird sich durch Ausgabe von 11'000'000 Namenaktien

mit einem Nennwert von je CHF 0.01 aus dem bestehenden genehmigten

Aktienkapital gemäss Artikel 6 der Statuten der Gesellschaft gegen

Bareinlage von CHF 3'375'208.72 auf CHF 3'485'208.72 erhöht.

Die neuen Aktien sind für das Geschäftsjahr 2022 vollständig

dividendenberechtigt.

Die neuen Aktien werden voraussichtlich am 19. Mai 2022 an der SIX Swiss

Exchange kotiert und zum Handel zugelassen. SIG hat sich vorbehaltlich der

üblichen Ausnahmen verpflichtet, für eine Periode von 90 Tagen keine

weiteren Aktien auszugeben.
