The size of the hybrid bond issued by CapMan Plc has increased to EUR 28.0 million

CapMan Plc Stock Exchange Release 19 March 2009 at 1.40 p.m.

The size of the hybrid bond issued by CapMan Plc in December 2008 has increased to EUR 28.0 million. The bond is issued to Finnish institutional investors in order to strengthen the Group's capital structure and to finance investments that CapMan Plc has made to the funds managed by the Group in line with its strategy.
The coupon rate for the bond is 11.25% p.a. and it is payable semi-annually. As the bonds are issued as serial bonds, the size of the issue may be increased to EUR 30 million. The bond has no maturity but the Company may call the bond after five years. The bond will be treated as equity in the Group's IFRS financial statements. The issuance of the bond will not dilute holdings of the Company's shareholders.

A hybrid bond is a bond that is subordinated to a company's other debt obligations but senior to its other equity instruments. Hybrid bonds do not entitle their holders to shareholder rights within the Company.
