DGAP-Adhoc: Leoni AG: Leoni resolves sale of own shares

Leoni AG / Transaction in Own Shares 06.10.2009 Dissemination of an Ad hoc announcement according to § 15 WpHG, transmitted by DGAP - a company of EquityStory AG. The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement. =-------------------------------------------------------------------------- Leoni resolves sale of own shares Nuremberg, 6 October 2009 - Today, the Management Board of Leoni AG, Nuremberg (ISIN DE 0005408884 / SCN 540888), resolved, with the consent of the Supervisory Board of the same day, to sell up to 2,933,499 own shares, i.e. up to 9.88 percent of its share capital. The shares are to be offered for purchase in an accelerated bookbuilding offering to qualified investors in Germany, Europe as well as in the United States. The sale is based on an authorisation granted by the Annual General Meeting of Leoni AG, with the approval of the Supervisory Board to execute the sale of own shares previously acquired, excluding the shareholders' subscription rights, in a way other than via the stock exchange or by offer to all shareholders. Leoni AG had purchased the shares concerned between October and December 2008 in connection with a share buy-back programme. As it is currently no longer planned to use the own shares as acquisition currency, the decision was made to sell them. With this sale, Leoni AG will be able to achieve an improvement in its equity ratio and debt situation. Goldman Sachs International and UniCredit Group (Bayerische Hypo- und Vereinsbank Aktiengesellschaft) are acting as joint bookrunners on the transaction. Leoni still expects to generate consolidated sales of between EUR 2.1 and 2.2 billion in 2009 and - provided that the upper end of this sales range is reached - to achieve at least break even at the level of adjusted earnings before interest and taxes in the 2nd half of the year, as already communicated on 11 August 2009 in the interim report. This release contains statements concerning the expected future business of Leoni AG's expected growth prospects and other opportunities for an increase in value of the company as well as expected future financial indebtedness, restructuring costs and other financial data. These forward-looking statements are based on management's current expectations, estimates and projections. They are subject to a number of assumptions and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause actual results and developments to differ materially from any future results and developments expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Leoni AG has no obligation to periodically update or release any revisions to the forward-looking statements contained in this release to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this release. This release does not constitute an offer for the sale or purchase of securities in the United States. Shares of Leoni AG may only be offered or sold in the United States after prior registration or based on an exemption from registration under the rules of the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended. There will be no public offer of shares in the United States.
