VARTA AG Resolves on Capital Increase from Authorized Capital

Ellwangen, June 12, 2019 - With the approval of the Supervisory Board, the Management Board of VARTA AG (the "Company") has resolved to increase the Company's share capital with exclusion of the shareholders' subscription rights. The capital increase shall be effected against cash contribution and with partial utilization of the existing authorized capital pursuant to Section 4(3) of the articles of association. The Company's share capital will be increased by such aggregate number of new no-par-value bearer shares with a notional value in the share capital of EUR 1.00 per share which yields gross proceeds of approximately EUR 100,000,000. The new shares will be exclusively offered to institutional investors as part of an international private placement by means of an accelerated bookbuilding process, which will commence immediately after this announcement and is expected to close before markets open tomorrow.

The new shares are fully entitled to dividends for the 2019 financial year. The new shares will carry the same rights as the existing shares.
The new shares shall be admitted to trading on the regulated market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, without a prospectus, with simultaneous admission to the sub-segment of the regulated market with additional post-admission obligations (Prime Standard).
The net proceeds from the capital increase shall be used to finance a further expansion of its production capacities in the strongly growing segment of rechargeable lithium-ion cells, which are used for high-tech consumer products. Through this expansion, the Company will expand its production by an additional 40 million cells per year with the goal to reach a total annual production of well above 100 million cells by 2021.
Berenberg is acting as Sole Global Coordinator and Sole Bookrunner in the transaction. The Company has agreed to a lock-up of six months subject to customary exceptions. The first trading day for the new shares is expected to be on June 14, 2019.
