The gross proceeds will amount to approximately EUR 5.9 million.
Accordingly, the Company's share capital will be increased by EUR 2,549,839.00 from currently EUR 21,745,817.00 to EUR 24,295,656.00 by issuing 2,549,839 new bearer shares with a notional value of EUR 1.00 per share after entry in the commercial register.

By implementing this measure, we were able to strengthen our equity base, but at the same time we will evaluate further financing measures in due time to cover our liquidity requirements in order to pursue our strategy".
