18. Mai 2022 SIG Group AG ("SIG")                                              
                                                                               
SIG nimmt EUR 204 Millionen auf zur teilweisen Finanzierung der Akquisitionen  
von Scholle IPN und Evergreen Asia                                             
                                                                               
SIG hat durch die Platzierung von 11 Millionen neuen Aktien zum Preis von CHF  
19.40 rund EUR 204 Millionen eingenommen.                                      
                                                                               
Die Kapitalerhöhung führte zu einem Bruttoerlös von CHF 213’400’000. SIG       
beabsichtigt, den Nettoerlös aus der Kapitalerhöhung zur teilweisen            
Finanzierung der Akquisitionen von Scholle IPN und Evergreen Asia zu verwenden,
die am 1. Februar 2022 bzw. am 5. Januar 2022 angekündigt wurden. Der          
verbleibende Teil des Kaufpreises wird durch Barmittel und Fremdkapital        
finanziert. Weitere Informationen zu den beiden Akquisitionen sind hier und    
hier zu finden.                                                                
                                                                               
Samuel Sigrist, CEO von SIG, sagte: «Ich danke den bisherigen und den neu      
dazugekommenen Aktionärinnen und Aktionären von SIG, welche die heutige        
Kapitalerhöhung zu einem Erfolg gemacht haben. Mit der Akquisition von Scholle 
IPN stärkt SIG ihre Position als globale Anbieterin für innovative und         
nachhaltige Verpackungen für flüssige Lebensmittel und Getränke. Die Übernahme 
von Evergreen Asia ermöglicht einen gezielten Zugang zum attraktiven und       
schnell wachsenden Markt für frische Milchprodukte in Asien, vor allem in      
China. Die heutige Transaktion stärkt die ausgewogene Kapitalstruktur von SIG. 
Wir werden fortfahren, unsere Verschuldung mit unseren starken und robusten    
Cashflows zu reduzieren, wie wir das in der Vergangenheit erfolgreich getan    
haben.»                                                                        
                                                                               
Das Aktienkapital der SIG wird sich durch Ausgabe von 11‘000’000 Namenaktien   
mit einem Nennwert von je CHF 0.01 aus dem bestehenden genehmigten             
Aktienkapital gemäss Artikel 6 der Statuten der Gesellschaft gegen Bareinlage  
von CHF 3'375'208.72 auf CHF 3’485’208.72 erhöht.                              
                                                                               
Die neuen Aktien sind für das Geschäftsjahr 2022 vollständig                   
dividendenberechtigt.                                                          
                                                                               
Die neuen Aktien werden voraussichtlich am 19. Mai 2022 an der SIX Swiss
