PORR hereby announces the preliminary results of the rights offering and notifies that as of 3 November 2021, 5:00 p.m., 8,766,378 new shares have been subscribed for in the rights offering by exercising subscription rights (this includes approximately 4.2 million new shares subscribed for by PORR's major shareholders, the IGO Industries Group and the Strauss Group).

The International Private Placement will be launched outside the United States of America to selected institutional and other qualified investors in reliance on Regulation S under the U.S. Securities Act and other applicable exemptions, with the offer price in the International Private Placement to be at least equal to the subscription price of EUR 12.00 per new share in the Rights Offering.
