Heidelberg Pharma will offer up to 2,820,961 new no-par value bearer shares with a notional interest in the share capital of EUR 1.00 each and full dividend rights as of 1 December 2018 from authorized capital in return for cash contributions, thereby increasing its share capital from EUR 28,209,611.00 by up to EUR 2,820,961.00 to up to EUR 31,030,572.00.

Against this background, dievini has declared its willingness that it will acquire any New Shares not subscribed for by institutional investors in the private placements.

Heidelberg Pharma AG plans to use the expected total gross proceeds from the capital increase to secure the further development and marketing of the proprietary ATAC technology (Antibody Targeted Amanitin Conjugates), in particular the clinical development of the proprietary ATAC candidate HDP-101 until mid-2021.
