EXASOL SUCCESSFULLY PLACES 2.4 MILLION NEW SHARES FROM CASH CAPITAL INCREASE WITH GROSS PROCEEDS OF EUR 7.1 MILLION
Nuremberg, 30.06.2023 - Exasol AG (“Exasol” or the “Company”, ISIN DE000A0LR9G9) announces that a capital increase of 10 percent of the share capital (the “Capital Increase”) has been fully placed.
The Company has successfully issued 2,443,887 new shares in a private placement by way of an accelerated bookbuilding, excluding subscription rights by partially utilizing the authorized capital. The new shares were placed at a placement price of EUR 2.90 per share, resulting in gross issue proceeds of approximately EUR 7.1 million.
Due to high demand, bookbuilding was completed shortly after the launch.
Several members of both the management board and supervisory board committed to purchase shares alongside and as part of the Capital Increase.
The net issue proceeds from the Capital Increase are to be used primarily to improve the equity base. Furthermore, the additional funds are to support the company's long-term growth strategy.
The New Shares will carry the same rights as the existing shares (including the entitlement to a share in profits for the financial year 2023) and shall be included in trading on the European SME Growth Market "Scale" of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange without a prospectus. Delivery of the New Shares is expected to take place on or about July 4, 2023.
Hauck Aufhäuser and M.M.Warburg & CO acted as Joint Global Coordinators for the capital increase.
