Medios AG: Increase of free float through secondary placement envisaged – Admission to Prime Standard applied for
Berlin, 12 May 2020 – Medios AG, one of the leading Specialty Pharma companies in Germany, announces the placement of up to existing 600,000 shares. Half of these come from an employee stock option program launched by Tangaroa Management GmbH in 2016 and expiring at the end of 2020. Moreover, Manfred Schneider, CEO and indirect principal shareholder of Medios AG, will provide up to 300,000 additional own shares via Tangaroa GmbH & Co. KG for the placement. The up to 600,000 shares are to be offered today by M.M.Warburg & CO to institutional investors by way of an accelerated bookbuilding process within a private placement. There will be no dilution of the shareholders.
After the successful placement of all offered existing shares, the free float of Medios AG will increase from around 57% to around 61% of the share capital, which will help to improve the liquidity of the stock and support the admission to the SDAX.
Matthias Gärtner, CFO of Medios AG: “The secondary placement and the planned uplisting into the Prime Standard will bring us closer to our goal of being admitted to the SDAX as soon as possible. This would make our shares even more attractive for national and international investors.”
Medios AG has already applied to Deutsche Börse for admission of its shares to a higher transparency level of the Regulated Market, the Prime Standard. To date, the shares are traded in the General Standard of the Regulated Market. The Management Board expects the admission within the next few weeks.
