adesso SE has improved its financial strength by increasing its share capital.

In connection with the announced capital increase, the Executive Board of adesso SE (the "Company") has, with the approval of the Supervisory Board, resolved to increase the share capital of the Company from EUR 6,193,593.00 by EUR 309,679.00 to EUR 6,503,272.00 by issuing 309,679 new no-par-value shares via partial utilisation of the existing authorized capital against contribution in cash and exclusion of subscription rights of the existing shareholders.

The new shares were placed by way of an accelerated bookbuilding process with institutional investors in Germany and abroad at a placement price of EUR 160.00 per new share.

Through the capital increase, and subject to the registration of the capital increase in the commercial register of the Company, the Company is expected to receive gross proceeds of around EUR 49.5 million.

The new shares carry the same rights as the existing shares and are expected to be admitted to trading on the regulated market (General Standard) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (Frankfurter Wertpapierbörse) without a prospectus on 12 October 2021. Trading is expected to commence on 13 October 2021. It is intended to include the new shares in the existing listing of the Company's shares. The delivery of the new shares is scheduled for 13 October 2021.

After the private placement, the Company will be subject to a lock-up of 180 days, i.e. an obligation not to, inter alia, issue further shares or financial instruments convertible into shares or to conduct a further capital increase, subject to market standard exemptions.
