VIB Vermögen AG continues to reject the unsolicited offer from DIC Asset AG

Neuburg/Danube, February 10, 2022 – Yesterday, DIC Asset AG (“DIC”) published its offer document in relation to the unsolicited partial public offer to acquire shares in VIB Vermögen AG (“VIB”) for EUR 51.00 in cash.

With its partial offer that is only attributable to approximately 23.5% of the outstanding share capital of VIB, DIC is aiming to gain control of VIB. The Management Board and Supervisory Board of VIB continue unanimously to recommend its shareholders to reject the offer price of EUR 51.00 per share as it contains no customary premium for control. The offer price does not reflect the growth potential resulting from VIB’s positioning and the persistently positive market trend for logistics properties. VIB has built a unique portfolio of logistics and industrial real estate with a focus on Southern Germany. The company’s focus over many years and the resulting expertise as a project developer for attractive logistics properties have enabled it to grow profitably on a sustained basis. The development pipeline is well filled, which means that a profitable growth of VIB is secured on a stand-alone basis. In the offer document, DIC does not outline any strategic advantage or added valued in a controlling shareholding for VIB, which is also not seen by the Management Board and the Supervisory Board for the shareholders of VIB.

The offer price is at a discount of EUR 2.20 to VIB’s closing share price (XETRA) on February 9, 2022 (EUR 53.20) and represents a premium on the VIB share price of January 28, 2022 (EUR 49.10) of only 3.9%.

The Management Board and Supervisory Board of VIB will not recommend the acceptance of an offer priced at EUR 51.00 per share and will further detail its recommendation not to accept this offer in a separate statement. In the meantime, VIB alerts its shareholders that a withdrawal right for tendered shares is explicitly excluded in the offer document. Shareholders are asked to continue their support of the Management Board and Supervisory Board of VIB and await publication of its statement.

VIB is advised by Rothschild & Co as financial adviser and SZA Schilling, Zutt & Anschütz as legal adviser.
