increase primarily to finance projects related to its internationalisation
strategy as well as for the medium-term funding of the performance of its
group holding functions.

The new shares are to be admitted for trading on the regulated market
(Prime Standard) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange without a prospectus.
Berenberg Bank has acted as sole bookrunner for the capital increase.
