is increasing its share capital by approximately 9.8 per cent through use
of authorized capital and excluding shareholders' subscription rights.

placement has been oversubscribed. The placement price was EUR 17.75 per

the regulated market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange with a simultaneous
listing in the Prime Standard segment of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange,
which has enhanced disclosure obligations. The shares qualify for a
