paragon GmbH & Co. KGaA Resolves to Issue New Bond
Delbrück, October 15, 2018 - The management of paragon GmbH & Co. KGaA ("Issuer") has today decided to offer a new bond with a nominal value of EUR 1,000 per bond ("Bond") by way of a public offer and a private placement ("Offer"). The target volume of the Bond is EUR 50 million. The term is expected to begin on October 31, 2018. The redemption date will be October 31, 2023.
The Offer will be made on the basis of a securities prospectus, which is expected to be approved by the securities authority of Luxembourg (Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier (CSSF)) on October 16, 2018; notification will subsequently be made to the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority of Germany (BaFin) in accordance with Article 19 of the Luxembourg law on prospectuses for securities of July 10, 2005. The Offer consists of the following:
i. A public offer by the Issuer in the Federal Republic of Germany and the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg submitted via the DirectPlace subscription function of Deutsche Börse AG in the XETRA trade system for the collection and handling of subscription orders (Public Offer).
ii. A private placement by Bankhaus Lampe KG (as the sole global coordinator and bookrunner) to qualified investors in accordance with the applicable exemption provisions for private placements in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and the Federal Republic of Germany as well as in other specific countries with the exception of the United States of America, Canada, Australia and Japan.
The offer period for the Public Offer is expected to begin on October 23, 2018, and is expected to end on October 25, 2018 (2 p.m. CET) (right to early closure reserved). An interest margin will be set and published before the start of the planned offering period. The nominal interest rate and the total nominal amount of the planned Bond will be determined and reported separately after the end of the planned offering period (presumably October 25, 2018).
The Offer is subject to the condition that bonds with a minimum total nominal value of EUR 30 million be placed. The inclusion of the Bond in trading on the open market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange in Deutsche Börse AG's Scale segment for corporate bonds will take place on the issue date, which is expected to be October 31, 2018 (subject to trading on terms of issue before the issue date).
Once approved, the prospectus can be viewed and downloaded on the website of the Issuer (www.ir.paragon.ag), the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (www.boerse-frankfurt.de) and the Luxembourg Stock Exchange (www.bourse.lu).
