Hamburg, 13 March 2006. After the AREVA Group, the second main shareholder of REpower Systems AG (WKN 617703) has explained to exercise their subscrip-tion rights during the planned capital increase. Martifer commits to exercise a total of 1,556,000 subscription rights. This corresponds to the acquisition of 517,667 shares of the planned capital increase.
It is intended to increase capital, which currently stands at EUR 5,941,198.00, by a pro-visional amount of EUR 2,160,599.00 for cash investments to a provisional total of EUR 8,101,797.00.
