Capital measures
12.01.2017


AGRANA is exploring a cash capital increase from existing authorised capital,
given appropriate market conditions. Provided that the principal shareholders
waive their subscription right and that a significant portion of the existing
AGRANA shares directly held by Südzucker are placed, the free float of currently
about 7% could be increased significantly to approximately 20%. This would
heighten the attractiveness of AGRANA shares, which are listed in the Prime
Market segment of Vienna Stock Exchange, and would assist in financing the
continued profitable growth of the AGRANA Group. The Management Board of AGRANA
today decided to further evaluate this option.

A consortium of four banks is acting as advisors to AGRANA and Südzucker in this
capital action.
