On 31 January 2017, AGRANA Beteiligungs-Aktiengesellschaft,

On 1 February 2017, AGRANA informed the market that AGRANA completed the first
tranche of its cash capital increase which were placed via the institutional
pre-placement together with the concurrent secondary offer of 500,000 existing
AGRANA shares previously held directly by Südzucker AG. In the course of the
first tranche of its cash capital increase, AGRANA placed 1,316,720 new AGRANA
shares at an offer price of EUR 100 per new AGRANA share. The remaining up to
103,484 new AGRANA shares of the second tranche of the cash capital increase
were offered to AGRANA's free float shareholders who have not waived their
subscription rights at a subscription price of EUR 100 per new AGRANA share
during the subscription period which commenced on 2 February 2017 and which ends
on 16 February 2017, 24:00 CET (the "Rights Offering").

AGRANA herewith announces the preliminary results of the Rights Offering and
informs the market that - as of 16 February 2017, 17:00 CET - an aggregate of
67,349 new AGRANA shares were subscribed for in the Rights Offering. New AGRANA
shares which are not subscribed for until 16 February 2017, 24:00 CET, will be
offered at the offer price to institutional investors in private placements in
and outside of Austria and outside of the United States of America (the "Rump
Placement"). 

The final number of new AGRANA shares issued in the cash capital increase in two
tranches will be determined upon completion of the Rump Placement by AGRANA,
Südzucker as well as the underwriting banks Berenberg, BNP Paribas, Erste Group
and Raiffeisen Bank International and will be published immediately.
