Pörssitiedotteet - 21.9.2010


NOT FOR RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, IN OR INTO
THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, CANADA, JAPAN, AUSTRALIA, SOUTH AFRICA OR IN ANY
OTHER JURISDICTION IN WHICH OFFERS OR SALES WOULD BE PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE
LAW.

Citycon Oyj:n ("Citycon" tai "Yhtiö") hallitus tiedottaa tänään aikomuksestaan
tarjota enintään 22 000 000 uutta Yhtiön osaketta ("Osakkeet"). Osakkeet
tarjotaan suomalaisille ja kansainvälisille institutionaalisille sijoittajille
nopeutetussa tarjousmenettelyssä osakkeenomistajien merkintäetuoikeudesta
poiketen ("Osakeanti"). Osakeannissa tarjottavien Osakkeiden merkintähinta tulee
perustumaan tarjousmenettelyssä määräytyneeseen hintaan. Tarjottavat Osakkeet
vastaavat noin 9,9 prosenttia Cityconin kaikista osakkeista ja äänistä
välittömästi ennen Osakeantia. Cityconin varsinainen yhtiökokous antoi
13.3.2007 hallitukselle valtuutuksen laskea liikkeeseen Osakkeita
osakkeenomistajien merkintäetuoikeudesta poiketen.

Yhtiö aikoo käyttää Osakeannin nettotuotot maksaakseen takaisin Yhtiön
korollisia velkoja ja vahvistaakseen pääomarakennettaan. Osakeanti tarjoaisi
Yhtiölle lisää taloudellista joustavuutta Yhtiön toteuttaessa kehitysprojekteja
ja mahdollisia hankintoja Yhtiön investointistrategian mukaisesti sekä myös
laajentaisi Yhtiön omistuspohjaa.

Cityconin suurin osakkeenomistaja Gazit-Globe Ltd., kansainvälinen listattu
kiinteistöyhtiö, on ilmaissut tukensa Osakeannille osana pitkän tähtäimen
strategiaansa alueella.

Osakeanti toteutetaan tiettyjen ehtojen täyttyessä Kempen & Co:n ("Kempen")
toteuttamassa nopeutetussa tarjousmenettelyssä suomalaisille ja kansainvälisille
institutionaalisille sijoittajille. Tarjousmenettely alkaa välittömästi ja sen
oletetaan päättyvän ennen päivän päättymistä. Merkintätarjousten
vastaanottaminen voidaan kuitenkin keskeyttää koska tahansa
tarjousmenettelyjakson kuluessa. Yhtiö ja Kempen määrittävät tarjousmenettelyn
päätyttyä tarjottavien Osakkeiden määrän ja hinnan, jolla Osakkeet tarjotaan.
Yksityiskohdat Osakkeiden lukumäärästä ja merkintähinnasta tiedotetaan niin pian
kuin mahdollista tarjousmenettelyn päätyttyä.

Yhtiö on solminut Osakeannin yhteydessä myyntirajoitussopimuksen (lock-up
agreement), jonka mukaan se sitoutuu tietyin poikkeuksin olemaan laskematta
liikkeeseen tai myymättä Cityconin osakkeita ajanjaksona, joka päättyy 90 päivää
Osakeannin toteuttamisen jälkeen.

Osakkeet tuottavat haltijoillensa osakkeenomistajien oikeudet, mukaan lukien
oikeuden saada Yhtiön mahdollisesti jakaman täyden osingon sen jälkeen, kun
Osakkeet on rekisteröity kaupparekisteriin.

Yhtiö hakee Osakkeiden ottamista julkisen kaupankäynnin kohteeksi NASDAQ OMX
Helsinki Oy:ssä. Julkisen kaupankäynnin Osakkeilla odotetaan alkavan arviolta
24.9.2010.

Osakeannin järjestäjänä toimii Kempen (Sole Bookrunner and Lead Manager).
