windeln.de successfully places shares at EUR18.50

Munich, 5 May 2015. windeln.de AG ("windeln.de" or the "Company") has set the offer price for shares in connection with its initial public offering ("IPO") at EUR18.50 per share. The offer price is thus at the mid-point of the price range from EUR16.50 to EUR20.50 per share. The offering was well oversubscribed at the offer price.

A total of 11,404,899 shares of windeln.de were placed, thereof 5,400,000 newly issued ordinary bearer shares from a capital increase, 4,517,304 existing ordinary bearer shares from the holdings of the selling shareholders, and 1,487,595 existing ordinary bearer shares in connection with an over-allotment. In connection with the over-allotment, existing shares are borrowed from certain selling shareholders, which could be settled with newly issued shares from the Company ("Greenshoe Option").

The total offer volume amounts to approximately EUR211 million (including over-allotment) based on the offer price. The Company will receive gross proceeds of approximately EUR100 million from the sale of the new shares. Provided that the Greenshoe Option is exercised, resulting in the issue of additional new shares, the total gross proceeds for the Company amount to approximately EUR127 million. All main existing shareholders of windeln.de will remain invested in the Company. The resulting initial free float will amount to approximately 42 percent of the Company's post-IPO share capital, assuming full exercise of the Greenshoe Option.

The shares of windeln.de will be traded on the regulated market (Prime Standard) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol WDL from 6 May 2015 (WKN: WNDL11, ISIN: DE000WNDL110).
