Today, Karemi Charge and Drive SE (to be renamed Fortum Deutschland SE)
(the 'Bidder') decided to make a voluntary public takeover offer to the
shareholders of Uniper SE (the 'Uniper-Shareholders') to acquire their
registered shares in Uniper SE with no par value, each representing a pro-
rata amount of the share capital of EUR 1.70 (the 'Uniper-Shares') against
payment of a cash consideration of EUR 21.31 per Uniper-Share (the
'Takeover Offer'). In addition, the Uniper-Shareholders of the company
shall benefit from the dividend to be paid for financial year 2017, which
is expected to be an amount of EUR 0.69 per Uniper-Share, resulting in a
total offer value of EUR 22.00 per Uniper-Share. If the consummation of the
Takeover Offer occurs prior to the next annual general meeting of Uniper
SE, which will resolve upon the distribution of profits for financial year
2017, the cash consideration will be increased by EUR 0.69 per Uniper-Share
to EUR 22.00 per Uniper-Share. If the consummation of the Takeover Offer
occurs after the next annual general meeting of Uniper SE, the Uniper-
Shareholders will in addition receive the Uniper dividend for financial
year 2017 from Uniper SE. If the Uniper dividend for financial year 2017 is
less than EUR 0.69 per Uniper-Share, the Bidder will compensate those
Uniper-Shareholders who have tendered their shares for the difference to
the amount of EUR 0.69 accordingly.

The offer document (in the German language as well as in a non-binding
English translation) as well as further information relating to the
Takeover Offer will be published on the internet at www.powerful-
combination.com Additionally, the publication of the offer document will be
announced in the federal gazette (Bundesanzeiger).

Further Information:

The Bidder is a wholly owned indirect subsidiary of Fortum Oyj with
registered office at Espoo, Finland. Fortum Oyj and E.ON SE have today
signed a transaction agreement under which E.ON has the right to tender its
46.65% shareholding in Uniper SE into the Takeover Offer in early 2018 for
the same consideration as offered to all shareholders. The agreement
further provides that if E.ON does not tender its Uniper-Shares, the Bidder
will have the right to sell to E.ON any Uniper-Shares acquired in
connection with the Takeover Offer, and, in addition, receive a
compensation payment from E.ON.

The Takeover Offer will not have a minimum acceptance threshold but will be
subject to competition and other regulatory clearances. Apart from this,
the Takeover Offer will be made on and subject to the terms and conditions
to be set out in the offer document.

Important Notice:

This announcement is neither an offer to purchase nor a solicitation of an
offer to sell shares of Uniper SE. The definite terms and conditions of the
Takeover Offer, as well as further provisions concerning the Takeover
Offer, will be published in the offer document only after the German
Federal Financial Supervisory Authority has granted permission to publish
the offer document. Investors and holders of shares in Uniper SE are
strongly advised to read the offer document and all other relevant
documents regarding the Takeover Offer when they become available, since
they will contain important information. The Bidder reserves the right, to
the extent permissible under applicable law, to acquire, directly or
indirectly, additional Uniper Shares outside of the Takeover Offer on or
off the stock exchange. To the extent such acquisitions occur, information
about them will be published according to the applicable statutory
provisions.

Aves One AG: kursziel deutlich angehoben

Die Aves One AG ist im Geschäftsjahr 2017 abermals dynamisch gewachsen. Der Umsatz stieg um fast 90 % auf über 53 Mio. EUR an. Der jetzt gemeldete Erwerb von umfangreichen Rail-Assets (VTG/Nacco-Deal) soll zu weiteren Steigerungen beitragen. Wir erwarten weiteres Wachstum von über 40% im laufenden Jahr sowie einen dynamischen Anstieg in den Folgejahren. Das Ziel von 1 Mrd. Assets und Managment könnte bereits 2019 und damit ein Jahr früher erreicht werden. Unsere Analysten sind vom VTG/Nacco-Deal überzeugt und haben das Kursziel deutlich auf 12,10 Euro erhöht (bisher 9,10 Euro).
