The Transaction is targeted to close in H1 2025, subject to the fulfillment of customary closing conditions and obtaining required regulatory approvals, including merger control approval. The parties agreed to appropriate deal protections to ensure strong alignment to close the Transaction.

Additionally, the Management Board, with the approval of the Supervisory Board, resolved on a EUR 278 million (corresponding to USD 300 million) capital increase against cash contributions under exclusion of shareholders’ pre-emptive rights and partially utilizing the Company’s authorized capital by issuing 8,421,818 new ordinary registered shares with no-par value (the “New Shares”) at a placement price of EUR 33.00 per New Share (the “Capital Increase”).

The Company will evaluate partial redemptions of convertible bonds through over-the-counter transactions in the coming months. Further announcements regarding any capital structure management measures would be made in accordance with legal requirements.
