MIFA Mitteldeutsche Fahrradwerke AG / Key word(s): Bond 01.09.2014 15:43 Dissemination of a Corporate News, transmitted by DGAP - a service of EQS Group AG. The issuer / publisher is solely responsible for the content of this announcement. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- MIFA: "Clean" pricing of MIFA bond as of tomorrow Sangerhausen, 1 September 2014 - MIFA Mitteldeutsche Fahrradwerke AG (WKN share: A0B95Y / ISIN share: DE000A0B95Y8, "MIFA") has today submitted an application to convert the stock market listing of the 2013/18 MIFA bond (WKN bond: A1X25B / ISIN bond: DE000A1X25B5, "MIFA bond") from "dirty" pricing including accrued interest to "clean" pricing excluding accrued interest. This conversion serves to implement in securities technical terms the deferral of accrued interest that was agreed between MIFA and the bondholders' Joint Representative on 25 August 2014. On 25 August 2014, MIFA and One Square Advisory Services GmbH as the Joint Representative of all bondholders reached agreement concerning - inter alia - the deferral until 31 March 2015 of bondholders' interest claims that were due on 12 August 2014 (please refer to the announcement in the German Federal Gazette [Bundesanzeiger] dated 28 August 2014). To date, trading in the MIFA bond has reported separately to the bond price the proportional interest that has accrued over the current interest period until the price-fixing date ("accrued interest calculation"). A "clean" price, which does not include the reporting of accrued interest, is now to replace the accrued interest calculation. For the purposes of technically implementing the transition from accrued interest calculation to clean pricing, trading in the MIFA bond is to be suspended during the course of 1 September 2014, with trading recommencing on the morning of 2 September 2014 as clean pricing. This technical conversion does not modify the bondholders' rights arising from their bonds.
