The executive board of Wirecard AG (ISIN DE0007472060, WKN code 747206) today determined the issue price for the accelerated bookbuilding offering from the capital increase resolved yesterday at Euro 32.75. 11,198,345 new shares from the capital increase were successfully placed with institutional investors. The capital increase has generated gross proceeds of approx. Euro 367 million for the company.

Wirecard has undertaken this capital increase to be prepared for upcoming M&A opportunities continuing the acquisition strategy pursued over the last years. As the leading European online payment processing company Wirecard intends to over-proportionally benefit from an accelerated consolidation in the payment industry.

On 28 February 2014 the new shares are expected to be included in the existing quotation at the regulated market (regulierter Markt) and the sub-segment of the regulated market with further post-admission obligations of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (Prime Standard).
