Zwingenberg, November 17, 2022 – BRAIN Biotech AG was informed by its anchor investor MP Beteiligungs-GmbH, Kaiserslautern, that MP Beteiligungs-GmbH now holds approximately 45 percent of the total share capital in BRAIN Biotech AG. The shareholding of MP Beteiligungs-GmbH in BRAIN Biotech AG has been continuously expanded over the course of the year through acquisitions in the open market.
