In connection with the placement of the Company's shares, Citigroup Global Markets Europe AG will act as stabilization manager (the "Stabilization Manager") for the account of the Underwriters and, in this capacity, may over-allot and implement stabilization measures in accordance with Article 5 (4) and (5) of Regulation (EU) No 596/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 April 2014 on market abuse in conjunction with Articles 5 to 8 of Delegated Regulation (EU) 2016/1052 of 8 March 2016. Stabilization measures are aimed at supporting the market price of the Company's shares during the stabilization period, which begins on the day on which trading in the Company's shares on the regulated market (Prime Standard) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange commences (expected to be February 7, 2024) and ends no later than 30 calendar days thereafter (the "Stabilization Period"). Stabilization transactions may result in a market price that is higher than would otherwise result. However, the stabilization manager is not obliged to carry out stabilization measures. Therefore, a price stabilization measure is not mandatory and can be terminated at any time. Stabilization measures can be carried out on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, Xetra, BATS Europe, Berlin Stock Exchange, Chi-X Exchange, Düsseldorf Stock Exchange, Equiduct MTF, Eurocac Stock Exchange, Hamburg Stock Exchange, Hanover Stock Exchange, IBIS, Munich Stock Exchange, Stuttgart Stock Exchange, Turquoise MTF, VirtX Exchange.

In connection with such stabilization measures, investors will be allotted additional shares in the Company (up to 15% of the shares offered in the private placement, excluding any shares placed with KNDS N.V. under a cornerstone investor agreement with KNDS N.V. (the "Over-Allotment Shares")). The Selling Shareholders have granted the Stabilization Manager an option to acquire for the account of the Underwriters, at the offer price less agreed commissions, a number of 3,043,478 shares of the Company equal to the number of Over-Allotment Shares (the "Greenshoe Option"). To the extent that investors have been allotted Over-Allotment Shares in the placement, the Stabilization Manager is entitled to exercise this option for the account of the Underwriters during the Stabilization Period, even if such execution should follow a sale by the Stabilization Manager of shares previously acquired by the Stabilization Manager in the context of stabilization measures (so-called refreshing the shoe).
