Lübeck - Drägerwerk AG & Co. KGaA has bought back 41.1 percent of its issued participation certificates and now intends to redeem the purchased participation certificates. The participation certificates bought back have a total purchase price of EUR 122.1 million. This transaction decreases the equity ratio by about three percentage points; earnings per share on imputed actual full distribution will improve by 19 percent (based on the consolidated group financial statement 2011).

Improved capital structure

"Thanks to the successful buy-back, we have come a great deal closer to our goal of improving our capital structure. As such, we would like to thank all participation certificate holders that have accepted our offer," says Stefan Dräger, Chairman of the Executive Board of Drägerwerk Verwaltungs AG.

Premium for participation certificate holders was 26 percent

On February 15, 2012, Dräger requested that holders of participation certificate series A, K and D (series A: ISIN DE0005550651, WKN 555065; series K: ISIN DE0005550677, WKN 555067; series D: ISIN DE0005550719, WKN 555071) offer Dräger their participation certificates at a price of EUR 210 per share. The buy-back price named by Dräger corresponded to a premium of 26 percent on the average participation certificate price in the three months prior to the offer on February 15, 2012.
