Telefónica Deutschland Holding AG sets the conditions for the cash capital increase for the partial financing of the acquisition of E-Plus - subscription period is expected to start on September 10, 2014 THIS AD HOC RELEASE AND THE INFORMATION CONTAINED HEREIN ARE NOT BEING ISSUED AND MAY NOT BE DISTRIBUTED IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, CANADA, AUSTRALIA; SOUTH AFRICA OR JAPAN. Telefónica Deutschland Holding AG is beginning with the implementation of the cash capital increase for the partial financing of the cash consideration for the acquisition of E-Plus resolved upon by the general meeting on May 20, 2014. To this end, the management board, with the consent of the supervisory board, today set the subscription price and further details of the execution of the cash capital increase with subscription rights. It is intended to raise gross issue proceeds of approximately EUR 3.62 billion. These are intended to be used to pay the cash consideration for the acquisition of E-Plus. In total, Telefónica Deutschland Holding AG is issuing 1,116,945,400 new shares in the rights issue, which are endowed with full dividend rights as of January 1, 2014. The subscription price of the new shares is EUR 3.24 per share, which implies a discount to TERP (the theoretical ex-rights price) of 28.32%. The new shares will be offered to the shareholders in the ratio 1 to 1. This means that one outstanding share entitles the holder to subscribe for one new share. The subscription period is expected to start on September 10, 2014 and run until (and including) September 23, 2014. From September 10, 2014 to September 19, 2014, the subscription rights will be traded on the regulated market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (ISIN DE000A12UKL4 / WKN A12UKL).
