NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION OR RELEASE, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, IN OR INTO THE UNITED STATES, CANADA, AUSTRALIA, JAPAN OR ANY OTHER JURISDICTION, IN WHICH THE DISTRIBUTION OR RELEASE WOULD BE UNLAWFUL

The Board of Directors of DDM Holding AG (“DDM” or the “Company”) has, based on the authorization granted by DDM’s Annual General Meeting held on 27 May 2015 in its Art. 3a of the articles of the association, resolved to carry out an authorized share issue of a maximum of 2,000,000 registered shares at a subscription price of SEK 33.50 per share (the “Issue”). The subscription price in the Issue has been set at the market closing price on 19 May 2016. According to Article 3a para 2 of the articles of association the pre-emptive rights have been withdrawn. The reason for this is to raise capital to be used exclusively for imminent investments.

Through the Issue DDM will receive gross proceeds amounting to up to SEK 65 million.

“The large portfolios acquired in Hungary during 2015 strengthened DDM’s position as a leading investor and manager of distressed assets in Eastern Europe. The new equity raise will further strengthen the Company’s ability to capture the large growth opportunities that we currently see in the market,” said Kent Hansson, Chairman of the Board of Directors of DDM.
Carnegie Investment Bank has acted as financial advisor to DDM in connection with the Issue.

About Us

DDM Holding AG (First North: DDM) is a multinational investor in and manager of distressed assets, offering the prospect of attractive returns from the expanding Southern, Central and Eastern Europe market. Since 2007, the DDM Group has built a successful platform in Southern, Central and Eastern Europe, and has acquired 2.3 million receivables with a nominal value of over EUR 3.5 billion. For sellers (banks and financial institutions), management of portfolios of distressed assets is a sensitive issue as it concerns the relationship with their customers. For these sellers, it is therefore critical that the acquirer handles the underlying individual debtors professionally, ethically and with respect. DDM has longstanding relations with sellers of distressed assets, based on trust and the Company’s status as a credible acquirer. The banking sector in Southern, Central and Eastern Europe is subject to increasingly stricter capital ratio requirements resulting in distressed assets being more expensive for banks to keep on their balance sheets. As a result, banks are increasingly looking to divest portfolios of distressed and other non-core assets. DDM Holding AG, the Parent Company, is a company incorporated and domiciled in Baar, Switzerland and listed on Nasdaq First North in Stockholm, Sweden, since August 2014.
