German Startups Group sells stakes and
repays loan liabilities prematurely


Berlin, 29 August 2019 - German Startups Group, a leading venture capital provider in Germany and Berlin-based digital agency with 150 employees, sells one focus investment entirely and another one partially and achieves a mid-single-digit million proceed (euros). A part of the proceeds will be used to repay two loans in the amount of EUR 2.5 million prematurely, one of them well before the agreed repayment date.

For the second half of 2019, too, the management is focusing on the sale of shares and expects that this will be successful in the intended cases through trade sales and exits and that it will achieve significant capital gains. For the full year 2019, management expects sale proceeds of more than half of its current market capitalization.

As long as the GSG share price is significantly lower than the Net Asset Value (NAV) per share in the eyes of the management, it wants to use sale proceeds for further share buybacks of its own shares, subject to approval of the supervisory board, and fully exercise the legally permitted volume for the use of own shares under exclusion of subscription rights.
