Telefónica Deutschland places shares at an issue price of €5.60 per share

  • Issuing volume including greenshoe option of €1,449m
  • Offer several times oversubscribed based on the issue price
MUNICH. Telefónica Deutschland Holding AG, Telefónica S.A. and the syndicate banks have set the issue price for the shares offered within the initial public offering at €5.60 per share. In total, 258.75m shares were placed with investors (including 33.75m over-alloted shares in connection with the greenshoe option). The offer was several times oversubscribed based on the issue price. Upon full exercise of the greenshoe option, the placement volume would amount to €1,449m and the free float would be 23.17 per cent.

"We are very pleased with the strong demand for our shares," says René Schuster, CEO of Telefónica Deutschland. "Our proposition to investors, of a strong strategic positioning, solid growth, and an attractive dividend, has been a success." Approximately 99 per cent of the total number of 258,750,000 shares were allotted to institutional investors. Retail investors in Germany were allotted less than 1 per cent of the total number of 258,750,000 shares placed. Retail purchase orders received by the syndicate banks and their associated institutions at a limit price of at least 5.60 Euro were allotted as follows: orders from 200 to 299 shares received a minimum allotment of 200 shares each and orders of 300 shares or more received a minimum allotment of 300 shares each. The difference between the individual order size and the respective minimum allotment was allotted with 50 per cent each, rounded-down in each case to a full number of shares. There was a maximum allotment on each individual order of 5,000 shares. The allotment within the scope of the offering to retail investors was carried out in line with the Principles for Allotment of Share Issues to Private Investors ("Grundsätze für die Zuteilung von Aktienemissionen an Privatanleger") issued on June 7, 2000 by the Stock Exchange Commission ("Börsensachverständigenkommission") at the German Federal Ministry of Finance. The allotment was in accordance with uniform criteria ("standardized allotment") for all syndicate banks and their associated institutions. There was no preferential allotment to members of the executive bodies of Telefónica Deutschland Holding AG or their relatives or to employees or business partners of Telefónica Deutschland Holding AG. J.P. Morgan and UBS Investment Bank acted as Joint Global Coordinators and Joint Bookrunners, BofA Merrill Lynch, BNP PARIBAS, Citigroup and HSBC acted as Joint Bookrunners, and Banca IMI, BayernLB, BBVA, COMMERZBANK, Banco Santander and Société Générale Corporate & Investment Banking acted as Co-lead managers on the transaction.
