Marburg, 24 June 2019 - The Management Board of 3U HOLDING AG (ISIN: DE0005167902) is carrying out a merger of weclapp GmbH into a Societas Europaea (SE) in order to expand the financing possibilities of weclapp GmbH and to be able to act at any time with regard to a possible IPO. 3U HOLDING AG holds 74.9998 % of weclapp GmbH as a shareholder. On 15 March 2019, a merger agreement between weclapp GmbH and an SE, which will operate under the name weclapp SE in the future, was notarized. The competent court commissioned an auditor to prepare a valuation report as part of the examination of the application for entry of the merger in the commercial register.

The Management Board of 3U HOLDING AG today received an advanced draft of the valuation report. The enterprise value of weclapp GmbH is quantified in this draft at EUR 70.3 million. The Management Board does not expect that the established enterprise value will change significantly in the final version of the valuation.

As has been publicly known for some time, 3U HOLDING AG is continuously analysing various additional financing options with a view to its growth strategy. Currently, an initial public offering as an option to finance the further, also international, expansion of the rapidly growing provider of cloud-based business software, weclapp GmbH, in future weclapp SE, is being examined intensively. This project and any measures required to implement it depend on the capital market environment. The Management Board of 3U HOLDING AG has not yet made a decision on the IPO. If the intention of an IPO becomes more concrete, the Management Board will communicate this immediately.

As a matter of precaution, it is pointed out that in the event of an IPO of weclapp SE, the stock market value depends on a number of factors and may be both below and above the value determined by the expert opinion for weclapp GmbH. The same applies to other financing options with regard to weclapp SE.
