Frankfurt – Oktober 14, 2021 – McDermott Will & Emery advised Joint Global Coordinators Jefferies and Hauck & Aufhäuser on a rights issue of Mutares SE & Co. KGaA from authorised capital against cash contribution.

A total of 5,140,439 new registered no-par value shares of the Company were issued at a price of €19.50 per share in partial utilisation of the Company’s authorised capital, raising total gross issue amount of approximately €100 million. Mutares intends to use the proceeds to accelerate growth through acquisitions of new portfolio companies, add-on acquisitions to strengthen existing portfolio companies and investments in existing portfolio companies.

Furthermore, in the course of the capital measure, the Company has also applied for an uplisting of the shares, which were previously listed in the Scale segment, for trading on the Regulated Market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange with further post-admission obligations (Prime Standard). Admission of the existing shares and the new shares issued as part of the capital increase is expected on October 19, 2021. The listing of the Company’s shares on the Regulated Market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (Prime Standard) is expected to take place on October 20, 2021.
