Berlin, October 16, 2018 – The Executive Board of Epigenomics AG (FSE: ECX; OTCQX: EPGNY) (“Company”) resolved today, with approval of the Supervisory Board, to set the subscription price per new share at EUR 1.86 as part of the capital increase resolved on October 7, 2018. The subscription price represents a discount of 9.7% to the volume-weighted average price for one share of the Company on the electronic trading system XETRA on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (Frankfurter Wertpapierbörse) from the beginning of the subscription period on October 9, 2018 until close of trading on October 15, 2018.
The new shares are offered to shareholders of the Company as part of a public offering in Germany against contribution in cash by means of indirect subscription rights and partly in kind by means of direct subscription rights during the subscription period from October 9, 2018 until October 22, 2018. The subscription ratio is 2:1. This means that for each two existing shares in the Company a subscription right for one new share is allocated. Any new shares that are not subscribed for during the subscription period shall be offered to selected qualified investors as part of an international private placement.
