Information for and appeal to the shareholders who subscribed shares in the context of the June/July 2015 cash capital increase

Dear Madam or Sir,

In summer 2015 DF Deutsche Forfait AG intended to execute a cash capital increase, which failed because, contrary to what we had expected, the shares issued were not subscribed by a sufficient number of people. The capital increase would have had to be entered in the Commercial Register no later than 30 September 2015, which was impossible. On 29 September 2015, DF Deutsche Forfait AG was additionally forced to apply for the opening of a “Schutzschirmverfahren” (creditor protection). The “Schutzschirmverfahren” is to be concluded with an insolvency plan resulting in the full restructuring and preservation of the company.

The shareholders who signed the new shares also paid in the capital or had their accounts debited with the respective amounts, according to our information, only recently.

We want to inform you about your claims against DF Deutsche Forfait AG as precisely as possible. We would like to take the following approach in order to communicate with you in a timely manner:

  1. We ask you to state your name and address and to provide evidence of the subscription of the shares and of your payment (copies of the respective documents are sufficient).
  2. Once we have received this information, we will immediately send you an explanatory letter by the lawyers representing DF Deutsche Forfait AG.
  3. We will immediately inform you of the further steps in the restructuring process.
