The offer period within which bids can be placed will begin on 23 November 2018 and end on 29 November 2018 (at 12:00 CET for retail investors and at 14:00 CET for institutional investors). During this period, interested investors will be able to submit purchase offers for the shares offered to the underwriting banks.
The offer price was set at EUR 12.00 per share. The offer comprises 3,800,000 new shares from a capital increase as well as an over-allotment option consisting of 570,000 existing shares, which are made available to the syndicate banks from the stock of a shareholder in the form of a securities loan. In connection with potential over-allotments, the Company has granted the Underwriters an option to acquire up to 570,000 additional shares to be created through a further capital increase of the Company from authorized capital ("greenshoe option").
Assuming full exercise of the Greenshoe option, the total issue volume is expected to be EUR 52.1 million, which will be fully paid to the Company. The trading of shares in the regulated market (Prime Standard) on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange is scheduled for 4 December 2018. The free float is expected to be over 17% when the greenshoe option is fully exercised.
