The investor KKR announced today that the grandchildren of company founder Axel Springer, Ariane Melanie Springer and Axel Sven Springer, have decided to accept the voluntary public tender offer by Traviata II S.à r.l. for parts of their shareholdings in Axel Springer SE. Traviata II S.à r.l. is a holding company owned by funds advised by KKR.
 

According to the announcement, Ariane Melanie Springer and Axel Sven Springer will accept the tender offer for shares representing approximately 3.7 percent of the share capital of Axel Springer SE in the course of the ongoing additional acceptance period. With their remaining shares, they will continue to be independent shareholders of the company.
 

"My sister and I are convinced of the entrepreneurial concept for the further development of Axel Springer. We therefore back the tender offer and intend to use the remaining part of our shareholdings to further support the company's development and its growth path," said Axel Sven Springer.
 

Axel Springer shareholders who have not yet accepted the offer can do so within the additional acceptance period, which will expire at midnight (CEST) on 21 August 2019.
