Epigenomics AG decides to increase share capital through rights issue with subscription rights of existing shareholders
Berlin, 17 October 2019 – On 17 October 2019, the Executive Board of Epigenomics AG (Frankfurt Prime Standard: ECX, OTCQX: EPGNY; the “company”) resolved, with approval of the Supervisory Board, to increase the share capital through a rights issue using the Authorized Capital 2019/II. The company’s share capital shall be increased from currently EUR 36,021,540.00 to up to EUR 46,828,002.00 by issuing up to 10,806,462 new registered no par value shares of the company against cash contributions.
The subscription price of the new shares will be determined during the subscription period, presumably at or around 31 October 2019, and amounts to a maximum of EUR 3.50 and, for legal reasons, to a minimum of EUR 1.05. The new shares will be offered to the company’s shareholders as part of a public offering in Germany by way of indirect subscription rights during the subscription period from 24 October 2019 to 6 November 2019. The subscription ratio will be 10:3. This means that for each ten existing shares of the company, subscription rights for three new shares are allocated. The record date for the allocation of subscription rights on the basis of the number of shares held by the shareholders on that date is the end of 23 October 2019. New shares that are not subscribed during the subscription period shall be offered to selected qualified investors as part of an international private placement. M.M.Warburg & CO (AG & Co.) Kommanditgesellschaft auf Aktien is the sole underwriter of the transaction. Raymond James & Associates, Inc. is the sole placement agent for the private placement in the United States of America.
The public offering of the new shares will be carried out subject to and exclusively on the basis of the securities prospectus approved by the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin), which will be made available, inter alia, on the website of Epigenomics AG (www.epigenomics.com). Approval is expected to be granted on 18 October 2019.
