Note: This Announcement, originally published on 24 May 2023 and updated on 20 June 2023, was further updated due to an additional extension of the exchange period. Changes have been highlighted.

Details on the procedure for the exchange of Software AG registered shares (ISIN DE000A2GS401) have been published in Wertpapiermitteilungen.

Exchange into "Software AG registered shares tendered for sale"

The transfer is to be carried out by means of a securities transfer (CASCADE transaction: KVEE WE) with an entry in the field "TR" specifying the attribute “4 – Originalaktien in Anrechte (original shares into entitlements)”. This transfer is only possible from unregistered positions (Freier Meldebestand, FMB). The shares must therefore be transferred to FMB in advance by means of a shareholdings transfer (CASCADE-RS transaction: KVEE BV).

until 17 July 2023 inclusive

The “Software AG registered shares tendered for sale" (ISIN DE000A35JSW8) will be issued as registered securities. The shares resulting from the exchange described above will be made available in FMB.

There is a follow-up entry period until 19 July 2023.
