Schrobenhausen, Germany – The extraordinary general meeting of BAUER Aktiengesellschaft voted today with the required majority to approve the agenda item subject to resolution, thus supporting the management’s proposal.

The fundamental precondition is now met for the planned capital increase to be carried out under the conditions provided for. The share capital of the company is to be increased from its current value of EUR 111,186,566.80, divided into 26,091,781 bearer shares without nominal value, up to EUR 74,124,374.99 against contributions in cash by issuing up to 17,394,520 new bearer shares of no par value in the form of ordinary shares (with voting rights). Shareholders are granted statutory subscription rights.

As already announced, on the side of the main shareholders, Doblinger Beteiligung GmbH, which currently holds 30% of the shares and voting rights according to the latest communication on voting rights, has declared its willingness to participate significantly in the increase in capital.

SD Thesaurus GmbH, a company in which Mrs. Sabine Doblinger holds significant interests, has undertaken by a subscription and purchase agreement to acquire all the new shares which would not be obtained by the other shareholders within the framework of their subscription at the purchase price within the limit of a total amount of 70 million euros.

The Management Board does not know whether and to what extent the Bauer family, which currently owns 36.03% of the shares of BAUER AG, will exercise their subscription rights as shareholders in the context of the capital increase.

Subject to the approval of the Supervisory Board as well as all competent authorities, the subscription phase is expected to begin in December 2022, and the placement of the shares is expected to be completed in January 2023.

As part of his presentation, Michael Stomberg, CEO of BAUER AG, reported on the planned capital measure as well as the current financial year 2022 and the difficult economic and political conditions. “We are pleased that the General Meeting has approved the capital increase, which now allows us to strengthen our equity to achieve our objectives for the years to come.”
