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).
