CargoWise GmbH extends acceptance period for voluntary public acquisition offer to the shareholders of Softship AG

Frankfurt, 5 October 2017. CargoWise GmbH, Bremen, Germany (the "Bidder") extends its voluntary public acquisition offer to the shareholders of Softship AG, Hamburg ("Softship"), to purchase any and all shares in Softship (ISIN DE0005758304 / WKN 575830) not yet held by the Bidder at an offer price of EUR 10.00 in cash per share of 29 August 2017 (the "Offer") until

3 November 2017, 24 hours (CET)

("Additional Acceptance Period").

Settlement of the Offer in respect of the Softship shares for which the Offer was accepted in accordance with the provisions of the offer document dated 29 August 2017 (the "Offer Document") during the initial acceptance period until 24 hours (CEST) on 6 October 2017, is expected to occur at the latest on 18 October 2017 ("First Settlement"). Settlement of the Offer in respect of Softship shares for which the Offer is validly accepted during the Additional Acceptance Period is expected to occur at the earliest by the fourth and at the latest by the eighth banking day after expiry of the Additional Acceptance Period.

Softship has terminated the inclusion of the Softship shares in the Basic Board of the open market (Freiverkehr) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange with effect as of 30 November 2017 ("Delisting"). After that date, Softship shares will no longer be traded on a stock exchange at the instigation of Softship. The Bidder does not intend to organize any trading for the time after the Delisting has become effective. It is uncertain on which platforms and at which prices Softship shares can be sold after 30 November 2017.

During the Additional Acceptance Period, Softship shareholders can still accept the Offer and sell their Softship shares to the Bidder at the Offer Price of EUR 10.00 per share. The Offer is made upon the terms and subject to the conditions of the Offer Document and its supplement dated 5 October 2017 ("Supplement"), which are available on the following website: http://softshipoffer.wisetechglobal.com, and can also be obtained free of charge from the central settlement agent Baader Bank AG, Unterschleißheim, Germany under documentation@baaderbank.de and by fax under +49 89 5150 291400. The Offer is addressed to Softship shareholders who have their seat, domicile or main residence in the Federal Republic of Germany. All other shareholders are excluded from the Offer, unless the Bidder expressly allows their participation in the Offer.

To accept the Offer, Softship shareholders must submit to their custodian banks through which they hold their Softship shares a declaration of acceptance until expiry of the Additional Acceptance Period. Softship shareholders who need assistance with respect to the procedure for participating in the Offer should contact the central settlement agent at the contact details above or their custodian bank. The relevant deadline set by the custodian bank through which Softship shareholders hold any shares in Softship or by Clearstream Banking AG, Frankfurt am Main and/or Clearstream Banking S.A., Luxembourg and/or Euroclear Bank SA/NV may be earlier than the expiration of the Additional Acceptance Period.

Investors and shareholders of Softship are strongly recommended to read the Offer Document, the Supplement and the other relevant documents in connection with the Offer, which include important information.

The Softship shares are not traded on the regulated market (Regulierter Markt) but on the open market (Freiverkehr). The Offer and its implementation are therefore not subject to the German Securities Acquisition and Takeover Act (Wertpapiererwerbs- und Übernahmegesetz) or sec. 39 German Stock Exchange Act (Börsengesetz). The Bidder expressly points out that the Offer is not subject to the supervision of the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (Bundesanstalt für Finanzdienstleistungsaufsicht, "BaFin") and is neither reviewed nor approved by BaFin. Neither under German nor under the laws of any other jurisdiction, notifications, registrations or approval of the Offer, the Offer Document or the Supplement have been requested or granted from any securities regulation authorities or other public authorities.
