Berlin, 27 April 2021 – On 27 April 2021, the Executive Board of Epigenomics AG (Frankfurt Prime Standard: ECX, OTCQX: EPGNY; the “company”) resolved, with approval of the Supervisory Board, to increase the company’s share capital through a rights issue using the Authorized Capital 2020/II. The share capital shall be increased from currently EUR 9,852,690.00 by up to EUR 1,970,538.00 to up to EUR 11,823,228.00 by issuing up to 1,970,538 new registered no par value shares of the company against cash contributions.
The subscription price of the new shares was set at EUR 1.10. 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, which is expected to run from 3 May 2021 to 17 May 2021.
