RB 53/2017 Binding Head of Terms between AmRest and Pizza Hut Germany
27-03-2017

The Management Board of AmRest Holdings SE (“AmRest”, the “Company”) informs about signing on March 27th, 2017 the Binding Head of Terms (the “HoT”) determining the key terms and conditions on, and subject to which, Yum Restaurants International Holding, Ltd (“YRIHL”) and Pizza Hut Delivery Germany GmbH (“PH Delivery”) would be willing to proceed with a potential transaction with AmRest, whereby the Company would become Pizza Hut master franchisee for Germany and acquire two Pizza Hut delivery stores in Dusseldorf (“Contemplated Transaction”).

As the result of the Contemplated Transaction AmRest would become the master-franchisee for 74 restaurants currently operated by multiple sub-franchisees in the German market and, and would have the right to grant the license to the third parties to operate Pizza Hut restaurants (sub-franchise). Additionally the Company would acquire 2 Pizza Hut equity restaurants (“Equity Business”) from PH Delivery. The purchase price for the Equity Business is subject to the results of a due diligence to be carried out by AmRest.

The HoT provides for signing of the agreements required for the acquisition of the Equity Business from PH Delivery (“Purchase Agreements”) as well as certain agreements with YRIHL: International Franchise Agreement for each of the equity units and the Master Franchise Agreement (“MFA”).

It is the intention of the parties that the MFA and the Purchase Agreements shall be signed and closed (including transfer of ownership of the Equity Business and signing of sub-franchised agreements under the MFA) no later than May 30th, 2017. If the parties fail to sign the MFA and the Purchase Agreements by that date the HoT shall terminate immediately, unless otherwise agreed in writing by both parties.

In the opinion of the Management Board of AmRest there is a great potential for growing international presence of Pizza Hut brand in Europe. The master franchise rights for another country will contribute to strengthening the partnership with Yum! Brands and AmRest’s leadership position of restaurant operator in Europe.
