DIC Asset AG: Excellent Result for DIC’s first scrip dividend with an acceptance rate of around 44 percent

– Shareholders chose for more than 30 million shares DIC’s first-time option of a scrip dividend

– Company retains around EUR 19 million in cash for continued growth

– Total of 1,948,501 new value shares issued

Frankfurt / Main, 18 April 2018. DIC Asset AG (WKN A1X3XX / ISIN DE000A1X3XX4) announced today that a large number of its shareholders took advantage of the option to be paid their dividend in new shares, a choice offered to them for the first time. With a subscription price at EUR 9.92 for each new share, and a subscription ratio of 15.5 to 1, the acceptance rate represented around 44 percent of the dividend-bearing shares. Overall, 1,948,501 new shares were issued. The dividend cash distribution in the amount of EUR 0.64 per share, adding up to a sum total of EUR 43.9 million, was thus reduced by 44 percent to EUR 24.5 million.

“We see the high acceptance rate for our first-time offer of a scrip dividend as a vote of confidence for our sustainable hybrid business model. It reflects the keen interest among our shareholders to keep participating in the success of our company. The issuance of new shares permitted us to retain circa EUR 19 million in cash in the company, which we intend to invest in the continued growth of the company and in the expansion of our business model,” said Sonja Wärntges, CEO of DIC Asset AG.

The new shares will be transferred into the shareholders’ custody accounts upon registration of the capital increase presumably on 24 April 2018. Issuance of the new shares will bring the subscribed capital of DIC Asset AG up to a total of EUR 70,526,248 million, implying an increase by 2.8 percent. The cash dividend will be disbursed presumably on 23 April 2018.
