Garbsen, 16 August 2018
- Today, the Management Board of LPKF Laser & Electronics AG  has decided to increase the Company's share capital by EUR 2,226,958 by issuing 2,226,958 new shares, corresponding to around 10 % of the current share capital, against cash contributions, excluding shareholders' subscription rights. The new shares will be issued at an issue and placement price of EUR 7.275 close to the stock exchange price as part of a private placement. Mr. Jörg Bantleon today gave LPKF Laser & Electronics AG a binding commitment to subscribe for the new shares at the above-mentioned price, and was authorized by the Company to subscribe for the new shares. The issue and placement amount includes a 3.5% discount to the XETRA closing price of LPKF shares yesterday. The Company's Supervisory Board has approved the capital increase today.


The new shares are to be admitted to trading on the Regulated Market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange without a prospectus and will be entitled to dividends as of January 1, 2018. The share capital of LPKF Laser & Electronics AG will increase to EUR 24,496,546 when the capital increase is entered in the commercial register. After completion of the capital increase, Mr. Bantleon's direct and indirect voting rights in the Company will amount to approximately 28.8%.


The Company expects net issue proceeds of approximately EUR 16 million from the cash capital increase. The capital increase will give LPKF sufficient scope to invest in profitable growth. The Company aims to accelerate the development and marketing of new technologies and, potentially, to strengthen its portfolio through targeted acquisitions. The Company also intends to use the issue proceeds to reduce its debt. LPKF Laser & Electronics AG shares are listed in the Prime Standard of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (ISIN 0006450000).
