Vapiano SE decides on cash capital increase of EUR 2,033,418.00

Cologne, October 23, 2018

The Management Board of Vapiano SE (ISIN: DE000A0WMNK9), with the approval of the Supervisory Board, today decided on a capital increase in exchange for cash of EUR 2,033,418.00, from EUR 24,029,833.00 to EUR 26,063,251.00, excluding shareholder subscription rights. The share capital of the company will be increased by using part of the authorized capital approved at the Annual General Meeting on May 30, 2017. For this purpose, the company will issue 2,033,418 new bearer shares with the same rights as the existing shares of the company. The new shares will be offered to qualified investors at a price of a minimum of EUR 10.00 in an accelerated bookbuild. Vapiano's main shareholders, Mayfair Beteiligungsfond II GmbH & Co. KG, VAP Leipzig GmbH & Co. KG and Exchange Bio GmbH may also submit purchase orders within the scope of the bookbuild and have entered into a backstop agreement to acquire any unplaced new shares at a price of EUR 10.00.

The accelerated bookbuilding will start on October 23, 2018, and is expected to end on October 24, 2018. The company reserves the right to close the order book at any time.

The placement price will be determined by the Management Board after completion of the accelerated bookbuild. The placement price is expected to be announced on October 24, 2018.

The new shares will be admitted to trading on the regulated market without a prospectus and simultaneously on the sub-segment of the regulated market with additional post-admission obligations (Prime Standard) on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, and will be included in the existing listing on October 26, 2018.

The capital increase will strengthen the equity base of Vapiano SE and significantly improve its financing structure. The net proceeds will be used to secure further growth and strategic development.
