Kleinostheim, 13 November 2017 - The Management Board of curasan AG (ISIN DE0005494538) today, with the consent of the Supervisory Board, decided to fully implement also the second tranche of the capital increase with subscription rights agreed on 4 September 2017 and to stipulate its final volume to EUR 4,151,856.00. This way, the share capital of curasan AG, already increased by the first tranche of the capital increase with subscription rights to EUR 13,693,396.00 will be increased by nominal EUR 1,876,070.00 by the issuance of 1,876,070 new bearer shares (with a calculated share of the share capital of EUR 1.00 per share) against cash contributions. All new shares will carry dividend rights from 1 January 2017.
The shares were offered to the existing shareholders from 11 September to 25 September 2017 by way of indirect subscription right in a 22:8 ratio. During the subscription period subscription rights were exercised for 2,275,786 new shares. The remaining 1,876,070 new shares are to be acquired by Chindex Hong Kong Limited, a subsidiary of the Chinese Fosun-group on the basis of an investment agreement signed on 4 September 2017 at a price of EUR 1.20.
The full implementation of the capital increase with subscription rights is expected to be entered into the commercial register on or around 17 November 2017. The new shares are expected to be included in the existing listing of the company's shares in the regulated market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange around 23 November 2017.
Through the capital increase by subscription rights curasan AG generates total gross proceeds from both tranches of almost EUR 5 million. This is primarily to be used for further market development in Asia and North America.
