Augsburg, February 5, 2024 – Today, RENK Group AG and its shareholder Rebecca BidCo S.à r.l., a holding company majority owned by the “Triton V” fund belonging to the investment firm Triton (the “Selling Shareholder”), have decided, together with the underwriting banks, to offer existing shares from the holdings of the Selling Shareholder to institutional investors by way of an accelerated bookbuilding.

A total of up to 30,000,000 shares will be offered, thereof 26,956,522 existing ordinary bearer shares with no par value 3,043,478 additional ordinary bearer shares with no par value to cover potential over-allotments.

The Selling Shareholder has granted the underwriting banks an option to acquire all or a portion of shares borrowed under a securities loan at the placement price less agreed fees and commissions (the “Greenshoe Option”).

The RENK Group AG will not receive any proceeds from the private placement. Assuming full exercise of the Greenshoe Option, the free float is expected to be up to 30 percent of RENK Group AG’s share capital.
