DGAP-News: Hapag-Lloyd AG / Key word(s): IPO

2015-11-06 / 08:30


Gross proceeds of US$ 300 million

The shares of Hapag-Lloyd AG ("Hapag-Lloyd" or the "Company") start trading
on the Frankfurt and Hamburg Stock Exchanges today. The successful initial
public offering marks a milestone in the history of Hapag-Lloyd. Gross
proceeds of US$ 300 million (about EUR 265 million) will be used for
investments in vessels and containers.

"We are satisfied with the interest of investors and the demand for our
shares", says Rolf Habben Jansen, Chief Executive Officer of Hapag-Lloyd.
"Despite a challenging market environment we successfully have been able to
complete this important step."

Michael Behrendt, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Hapag-Lloyd added:
"I want to thank the team at Hapag-Lloyd for the excellent work in the last
months. This IPO was only possible because all shareholders, Supervisory
Board and Management have collaborated unanimously and fully consensual
from the preparation of the IPO until the successful listing."
Witnessed by media and company associates, Rolf Habben Jansen and Chief
Financial Officer Nicolás Burr will jointly ring the stock exchange bell on
the trading floor in Frankfurt today, opening the trading of the
Hapag-Lloyd share. To fill the hall with some extraordinary sounds, the
Company brings their own model as well: a 200 pound bronze ship's bell.

Standard) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange and the regulated market of the
Hamburg Stock Exchange under the German Securities Code (WKN) HLAG47 and
