Grünwald, January 23, 2023 – Exercising the authorization granted by the Company’s Annual General Meeting on June 21, 2022, the Managing Directors of the general partner of AURELIUS Equity Opportunities SE & Co. KGaA (ISIN DE000A0JK2A8) (the "Company") resolved today to retire 1,500,000 treasury shares in bearer form that had been purchased by the company under the share buyback programs 2021 and 2022 by way of the simplified procedure according to Section 71 (1) no. 8 sentence 6, 237 (3) no. 3, 278 (3) of the German Stock Corporations Act (Aktiengesetz, AktG). This corresponds to approx. 5.21 percent of the company’s share capital.
The retirement of the shares will not entail a capital reduction and therefore the imputed nominal value of the shares will increase accordingly.

After the retirement, the Company will still hold a total of 587,391 treasury shares.
