Wiesbaden (11. November 2020) - Based on a market assessment obtained today, the Managing Board of ABO Wind AG (ISIN DE0005760029) is planning to implement a capital increase by partially using the existing 2020 authorised capital, excluding shareholders' subscription rights. It is expected that up to 550,000 new shares will be placed with selected qualified investors in a private placement. Taking into account the current market price of the company shares and assuming that the shares are fully placed, the Managing Board anticipates gross issue proceeds of around 16 million euros. These will be used primarily to finance the development and construction of new international wind and solar parks.
In the coming days, the Managing Board will determine further details of the implementation of the capital increase. The Supervisory Board has not yet given its approval for the capital increase.
