Befesa determines placement price and number of new shares from capital
increase

Luxembourg, 16 June 2021 Today, the board of directors of Befesa S.A.,
Luxembourg ("Befesa") resolved to increase its share capital against cash
contributions through partial utilization of its existing authorised capital
under the exclusion of shareholders' subscription rights from EUR
94,575,646.35 by EUR 16,471,948.79 to EUR 111,047,595.14 ("Capital Increase") by
issuing 5,933,293 new ordinary shares without nominal value ("New Shares").
The New Shares were placed with institutional investors by way of an
accelerated book building process at a placement price of EUR 56.00 per New
Share, resulting in gross proceeds of EUR 332,264,408.00 (before deduction
of commissions and expenses). The New Shares will carry dividend rights as
from 1 January 2020, excluding the right to participate in the interim
dividend which was paid on 4 December 2020 from available reserves.

The New Shares are to be included in the existing listing of Befesa's shares
in the sub-segment of the regulated market with additional post-admission
obligations (Prime Standard) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange without a
prospectus. Admission of the New Shares to trading is expected on 18 June
2021, trading of the New Shares is expected to commence on 21 June 2021. The
delivery of the New Shares is scheduled for 21 June 2021. Befesa has agreed
to a six-months lock-up period with market-customary exceptions.

The net proceeds from the Capital Increase shall be used to finance the
purchase price for the planned acquisition of US-based American Zinc
Recycling Corp. and a minority stake in American Zinc Products LLC as
announced in the ad hoc announcement of Befesa published on 16 June 2021.

Citigroup acted as sole global coordinator and sole bookrunner for the
placement of the New Shares.
