DIC Asset AG Successfully Places EUR 130 Million Corporate Bond

Frankfurt/Main, 05 July 2017. DIC Asset AG (WKN A1X3XX / ISIN DE000A1X3XX4) completed the placement of another corporate bond within a few hours. Based on the order book, the volume totals EUR 130 million, thereby exceeding the target volume of EUR 100 million. The coupon was fixed at 3.25 percent, and thus priced at the lower end of the marketing range. The maturity is five years. With the private placement successfully concluded, there will be no additional public offering of the corporate bond on 06 July 2017.

"Following the successful refinancing of the Commercial Portfolio in late 2016, the refinancing of the 2018 bond marks the next step in our ongoing effort to optimise the capital structure of DIC," said Sonja Wärntges, CFO of DIC Asset AG.

The issuer intends to use the collected net issue proceeds to repay its outstanding debt, specifically its outstanding 5.750 percent bond over EUR 100,000,000 (ISIN: DE000A1TNJ22) and for general corporate purposes.

The listing application on the official list of the Luxembourg Stock Exchange and the admission of the bonds for trading on the regulated market of "Bourse de Luxembourg" has been filed. First trading day is expected to be 11 July 2017.

The private placement was handled by the Bankhaus Lampe KG and Citi as joint lead managers.
