Vonovia SE: Vonovia exceeds 50% acceptance threshold in Victoria Park takeover offer



Bochum, 18 June 2018



Vonovia SE has exceeded the minimum acceptance threshold set as condition for closing of the takeover bid for Victoria Park AB of more than 50% of the voting rights (on a fully diluted basis and taking into account existing call options) based on the acceptance declarations received by the end of the acceptance period at 5:00 p.m. today. All conditions for completion of the offer have thus been satisfied and Vonovia will complete the offer.



Based on the preliminary calculations, shares representing at least 46% of the voting rights in Victoria Park have been tendered during the initial acceptance period. In addition, Vonovia has call options for 12.35% (12.32% fully diluted) of the voting rights. Hence, upon exercise of the call options Vonovia will hold at least 58% of the voting rights in Victoria Park. The final results will be determined on the morning of 21 June 2018 following final calculations of the shares tendered during the initial acceptance period.



Shareholders who have not yet tendered their shares can still do so in the additional acceptance period that runs until 3 July 2018.



The settlement of the offer for the shares already tendered is expected to take place on or about 28 June 2018.
