Detailed second statement by AURELIUS Equity Opportunities SE & Co. KGaA in response to Gotham’s additional assertions

Grünwald, 8 April 2017

Preamble

Gotham’s second report (“Gotham Report II”) published by Gotham Research LLC (“Gotham”) on 5 April 2017 in large measure repeats previous – and since debunked – assertions. For those, we mostly refer to our previous statement (“AURELIUS First Statement”). New assertions are as baseless as the old ones and are commented upon solely at the request of some of our reputable institutional investors. Needless to say that AURELIUS rejects all assertions – old and new.

Any research house with a serious interest in advancing the market debate around our company’s valuation and the analysis of its fair value would have made contact with us prior to publishing a report, let alone two. We note that Gotham has never done so and we leave it to market participants to draw their own conclusions.
