audius SE has successfully completed the capital increase announced on November 26, 2020. The company issued a total of 275,000 new shares in exchange for cash contributions and placed them at a price of EUR 8.40. Subscribers included institutional investors as well as members of the Management Board and Supervisory Board.
The share capital of the company is thus increased by EUR 275,000.00 from EUR 4,675,000.00 to EUR 4,950,000.00 by issuing 275,000 new no-par value bearer shares, making partial use of the "Authorized Capital 2020". The shareholders' subscription rights were excluded. Subject to the registration of the implementation of the capital increase in the commercial register, the gross issue proceeds will amount to EUR 2,310,000.00. The registration in the commercial register will take place at short notice.
By means of the capital increase, the company has further improved its already very favorable financial situation in order to be able to react flexibly and at short notice to inorganic growth opportunities in the future. The Executive Board believes that the Company is thus ideally positioned to implement its growth plans. In addition, the number of shares in free float was increased with the aim of enhancing the trading liquidity of audius shares and thus increasing their attractiveness.
For the current year, the Executive Board confirms the forecast of sales of more than EUR 30 million and EBITDA of more than EUR 2 million. As planned, these key figures will again increase significantly in the fiscal year of 2021, since in addition to a very good order situation, the audius companies will then be consolidated in the Group for the full year for the first time, leading to a jump in sales and profits.
