Weinstadt, November 26, 2020. Today, the Management Board of audius SE decided, in agreement with the Supervisory Board, to increase the Company's share capital from EUR 4,675,000.00 by up to EUR 225,000.00 to up to EUR 4,900,000.00 by issuing up to 225,000 new no-par value bearer shares in exchange for cash contributions, excluding shareholders' subscription rights, making partial use of the "Authorized Capital 2020".
The new shares are profit eligible as of January 1st, 2020 and are to be offered for purchase in a private offering by means of an accelerated placement procedure. The exact number of new shares to be issued and the placement price will be determined by the Board of Management with the consent of the Supervisory Board after completion of the placement procedure. Following the successful merger of audius with the IT Competence Group, the corporate group intends to continue to grow through acquisitions in the future. The earnings from the cash capital increase are therefore to be used to react flexibly to arising inorganic market opportunities. In addition, the attractiveness of audius shares is to be increased by expanding the free float.
