Berlin, December 20, 2019 - Based on the public share purchase offer by Rocket Internet SE, a total number of 19,300,452 shares have been tendered to the company during the acceptance period. This includes 11,219,841 shares tendered by United Internet Investments Holding AG & Co. KG (corresponding to 100.00% of all shares held by United Internet Investments Holding AG & Co.

The offer by Rocket Internet was for a maximum of up to 15,076,729 shares (ISIN DE000A12UKK6 / WKN A12UKK) corresponding to a maximum of up to 10.00% of the company's registered share capital. Since a total of 19,300,452 shares were tendered during the acceptance period, declarations of acceptance were only considered proportionally to ensure equal treatment.
