29 July 2022 – Marcel LUX III SARL (Marcel LUX III), a company indirectly owned by funds advised by EQT AB Group, intends to opportunistically increase its stake in SUSE S.A. (SUSE) by purchasing SUSE shares (ISIN LU2333210958). The purchases are scheduled to start on or around 8 August 2022 and are expected to be completed within nine months. Marcel LUX III intends to purchase SUSE shares for up to €100 million in the aggregate.
Share purchases can be executed on-exchange and off-exchange. Any on-exchange purchases are intended to be implemented in a manner limiting the impact on the SUSE share price on the relevant trading venues. The volume of SUSE shares to be purchased on-exchange on any given day is expected not to exceed 25% of the respective average daily trading volume.
To this end, Marcel LUX III has commissioned Morgan Stanley as broker to carry out these purchases and who will make its decisions in relation to the timing of the share purchases independently of, and without influence from Marcel LUX III. The share purchases may be discontinued, suspended and resumed at any time in accordance with all relevant laws, including notification obligations. Individual transactions executed will not be disclosed.
As of the date hereof, Marcel LUX III holds approximately 76% of all SUSE shares outstanding.
