NOT FOR RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, IN OR INTO OR FROM THE UNITED STATES, AUSTRALIA, CANADA, JAPAN OR ANY JURISDICTION WHERE TO DO SO WOULD CONSTITUTE A VIOLATION OF THE RELEVANT LAWS OF SUCH JURISDICTION

IGD - Immobiliare Grande Distribuzione SIIQ S.p.A.(“IGD”or the“Company”), following the press release published on 15 December 2017, announces that today the Extraordinary Shareholders’ Meeting, held on first call in a meeting chaired by Elio Gasperoni, resolved to increase the share capital, against payment, in divisible form, for up to Euro 150 million, including the relevant share premium (if any), to be completed by 31 December 2018 through the issue of ordinary shares with no par value and regular entitlement, to be offered on a pre-emptive basis to shareholders pursuant to Article 2441, first paragraph, of the Italian Civil Code, in proportion to the number of shares held (the “Capital Increase”).

The Board of Directors will determine, on or around the launch date, in accordance with standard market practices, the subscription price, the relevant share premium (if any), the number of newly issued shares and the issue ratio.

The Capital Increase is aimed(i)at partially financing the acquisition of 4 going concerns encompassing 4 shopping galleries and a retail park located in Northern Italy, being sold by the group controlled by Eurocommercial Properties N.V. (“ECP”), under the preliminary agreement executed by the Company and ECP on 15 December 2017 and announced to the market on the same date, and (ii) for the remaining portion (if any), at reducing the indebtedness of the Group, allowing the Company to strengthen its capital and financial structure.

Coop Alleanza 3.0, IGD’s majority shareholder, has undertaken to subscribe in full its portion of the Capital Increase, equal to approximately 40.92% (ca. Euro 61.38 million).

With regard to the remaining portion of the Capital Increase not to be subscribed by Coop Alleanza 3.0, the offer shall be assisted by an underwriting syndicate promoted, coordinated and managed by Banca IMI S.p.A., BNP PARIBAS and Morgan Stanley & Co. International plc, who will act as Joint Global Coordinators and Joint Bookrunners on the Capital Increase. It shall be recalled that, on 15 December 2017, the Company and the Joint Global Coordinators entered into a pre-underwriting agreement, on customary terms and conditions, pursuant to which they undertook, on terms and conditions set forth in the pre-underwriting agreement, to enter on or around the launch date into an underwriting agreement for the subscription of the newly issued shares that will remain unsubscribed.

Subject to the required authorizations from competent authorities, the Capital Increase is expected to be completed by the end of April 2018.

The Extraordinary Shareholders’ Meeting of the Company also approved a reverse stock split of IGD’s ordinary shares, at a ratio of 1 new ordinary share, with regular entitlement, per 10 existing ordinary shares, after cancellation of ordinary shares in the minimum number necessary to allow the balancing of the entire transaction, without reduction of the share capital. The reverse stock split is expected to be completed prior to the Capital Increase.
