MBB board resolves share buyback at a price of EUR 89.00 per share and proposes dividend for financial year 2018



The board of MBB SE (ISIN DE000A0ETBQ4) today resolved to exercise its right to acquire its own shares pursuant to § 71 Sec. 1 Nr. 8 AktG granted at the Annual General Meeting on 28 May 2018. Starting on 18 March 2019 until and including 02 April 2019, MBB will buy back 646.775 own shares (corresponding to c. 9.80% of the share capital) outside the stock market by means of a voluntary public buyback offer to all shareholders.



The buyback shall take place at a price (excl. acquisition costs) of EUR 89.00 per bearer share with a notional value of EUR 1.00 of the share capital.



MBB mandated Hauck & Aufhäuser Privatbankiers AG to execute the share buyback. Details of the share buyback will be published shortly on MBB"s website at http://www.mbb.com under "Investor Relations - Share Buyback - Share Buyback 2019" as well as in the Federal Gazette (https://www.bundesanzeiger.de).



Currently, MBB holds 13.225 own shares and intends to cancel all treasury shares following the share buyback for the purpose of a capital reduction.



MBB seeks to notably increase its capital efficiency through the share buyback on the one hand, as well as the acquisition of new companies, on the other hand. With around EUR 300 million of cash following the buyback, the MBB group boasts sufficient liquidity to continue on its extraordinary growth path.



The board moreover resolved today to propose an increase of the base dividend for financial year 2018 by 4.5% yoy to EUR 0.69 per share to the Annual General Meeting on 28 May 2019.
