PRESS RELEASE
 

Expansion and strengthening of the existing finance structures of ENCAVIS AG will be used for organic growth opportunities in huge solar park projects in Western Europe, the strategic portfolio expansion and to diversify the regional wind risk. Encavis AG today announces the launch of an offering of new bonds in an aggregate principal amount of up to EUR 53 million to tap the hybrid convertible bond issued by Encavis Finance B.V. in 2017
 

Hamburg, September 4, 2019 - The management board of the SDAX listed Hamburg based solar and wind park operator Encavis AG (the "Company") resolved today, with the approval of the supervisory board, to launch a tap offering of its outstanding perpetual subordinated bonds with time limited conversion rights into ordinary bearer shares of the Company in the aggregate principal amount of EUR 97.3 million issued by its wholly owned subsidiary Encavis Finance B.V. on September 13, 2017 (the "Original Bonds") by issuing new bonds in an aggregate principal amount of up to EUR 53 million (the "New Bonds"). The total aggregate principal amount of the hybrid convertible bond will thereby increase to up to EUR 150.3 million. As of the settlement date the New Bonds will be consolidated with the Original Bonds and form a single issue (Gesamtemission) under the existing ISIN DE000A19NPE8. The New Bonds will be issued without subscription rights at an issue price to be determined by a book building process. The book building will start immediately. The final issue price of the New Bonds is expected to be announced tomorrow prior to market opening.

The proceeds of the issuance of the New Bonds will be used by Encavis AG to finance new investments in solar and wind parks, the portfolio expansion as well as for general corporate purposes and can be accounted for as "equity" under the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).

The issuer of the New Bonds is Encavis Finance B.V., a wholly owned subsidiary of Encavis AG registered in the Netherlands.

The settlement date for the offering is expected to be on September 13, 2019. Inclusion of the New Bonds to the listing of the Original Bonds on the Open Market segment (Freiverkehr) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange is expected to take place on the same day

The New Bonds will be placed only with institutional investors in selected European countries in compliance with Regulation S of the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, by way of a private placement.

Jefferies International Ltd. acts as Sole Global Coordinator and Sole Bookrunner on the transaction.
