As announced in 4SC's publication of inside information on 11 June 2019, the subscription price was determined taking into account the volume-weighted average price (VWAP) of a 4SC share in the XETRA electronic trading system on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange from the beginning of the subscription period on 13 June 2019 until the close of trading on 20 June 2019 (each inclusive), less a discount. The VWAP of the 4SC share in the relevant period was EUR 2.6345, hence the granted discount amounts to 10%. The ongoing subscription period for the new shares ends on 26 June 2019 midnight (24:00 hrs. CEST).
