Hapag-Lloyd adjusts price range and offer structure

Price range set at EUR 20 to EUR 22 per share / Gross proceeds for Hapag-Lloyd remain at approximately US$ 300 million / Listing planned for 6 November 2015

Due to ongoing market volatility, Hapag-Lloyd ("the Company") and its existing shareholders after consultation with the Joint Global Coordinators have decided to adjust the price range and the offer structure in the course of the initial public offering ("IPO") of Hapag-Lloyd.

The new price range has been set at EUR 20 to EUR 22 per share. Under the adjusted offer structure, the number of shares from the capital increase has been increased to up to 13,228,677 shares that the Company will sell based on the offer price and will be such number of shares as is necessary to still provide the Company with gross proceeds of approximately US$300 million (about EUR 265 million). Core shareholders Kühne Maritime ("Kühne") and Compañía Sud Americana de Vapores (CSAV) have reiterated their cornerstone orders of US$ 30 million each. Further up to 1,984,301 shares from the holdings of TUI-Hapag Beteiligungs GmbH ("TUI") will be offered to cover potential over allotments. The new offer structure does not provide TUI with an additional shares placement option.

The adjusted offering consists of a total of up to 15,212,978 shares of Hapag-Lloyd. The new total offering size including primary proceeds for Hapag-Lloyd and potential over allotments can amount up to approximately US$ 345 million (about EUR 304 million). This would imply a free float of up to 18 per cent across the price range, including existing Hapag-Lloyd shareholders with an ownership of below 5 per cent.

The supplement to the IPO prospectus indicating the amended terms of issue still requires approval from the German Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin), which is expected during the course of today. The offer period for the new shares had previously been extended until 3 November 2015.

Upon successful conclusion of the offering, the shares are expected to start trading on the regulated market (Prime Standard) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange and the regulated market of the Hamburg Stock Exchange on 6 November 2015 under the German Securities Code (WKN) HLAG47 and International Securities Identification Number (ISIN) DE000HLAG475.

Berenberg, Deutsche Bank and Goldman Sachs International are acting as Joint Global Coordinators and Joint Bookrunners. Citigroup, Credit Suisse, HSBC and UniCredit have been mandated as additional Joint Bookrunners. DZ BANK, ING and M.M.Warburg & CO will act as Co-Lead Managers.
