Amsterdam, 23 May 2017 – The management of Metalcorp Group today decided in principle to place new

bonds to institutional investors by way of an international private placement. The volume is expected to be at least EUR 70 million with an envisaged coupon at around 7.0% p.a. and a term of presumably five years. It is intended to use the proceeds from the bond partly for the repayment of the existing bond 2013/2018 and partly for general corporate financing purposes. Following the successful closing of this private placement, Metalcorp Group intends to make a voluntary exchange and tender offer for the existing bond 2013/2018.
