Leoni intends to increase available liquidity

Nuremberg – Following an examination of the mid-term assumptions by external experts regarding business developments until 2022 and presentation of the results in today’s Board of Directors meeting, the Board of Leoni AG, Nuremberg (ISIN DE 0005408884 / WKN 540888) intends to increase its existing liquidity by EUR 200 million in order to ensure the company is fully financed.
