The capital increase shall be effected against cash contribution with partial utilization of the existing authorized capital pursuant to Section 3(6) of the articles of association. The Company's share capital will be increased from EUR 9,040,108.00 to up to EUR 9,944,118.00 through the issue of up to 904,010 new no-par-value registered shares with a notional value in the share capital of EUR 1.00 per share. The new shares will be exclusively offered to institutional and qualified investors as part of a private placement by means of an accelerated bookbuilding process, which will commence immediately after the publication of this announcement and may end at short notice at any time.

The new shares are entitled to dividends in the 2019 financial year beginning on January 1, 2019.

The new shares shall be admitted to trading on the open market of the Düsseldorf Stock Exchange, without a securities prospectus.

The net proceeds from the capital increase shall be used to fund the growth of its existing business activities, selected identified acquisitions in the social media & commerce space, and general corporate purposes.

The Company has agreed to a lock-up of six months subject to customary exceptions. The first trading day for the new shares and settlement of the new shares against payment of the placement price are expected to take place on or around November 26, 2019.
