Medios AG resolves on capital increase against cash contributions of up to almost 10% of the share capital

Berlin, 3 June 2020 - Today, the Management Board of Medios AG (the 'Company') has resolved, with the consent of the Supervisory Board, to increase the share capital against cash contributions, making partial use of the Authorized Capital 2018 and 2019. Accordingly, the Company's share capital of currently €14,628,590.00 is expected to increase by up to almost 10% by issuing up to 1,456,401 new no-par value bearer shares ('New Shares'). The statutory subscription rights of the shareholders are excluded. The New Shares carry the same rights as the existing shares with the ISIN DE000A1MMCC8 and will be admitted to trading on the regulated market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, without a prospectus, with simultaneous admission to the sub-segment of the regulated market with additional post-admission obligations (Prime Standard).

The New Shares are to be offered for purchase exclusively to institutional investors in an international private placement by means of an accelerated bookbuilding process.

The placement price and the exact number of New Shares to be issued will be determined by the Management Board with the approval of the Supervisory Board after completion of the placement procedure. The first trading day of the New Shares is expected to be June 5, 2020. Delivery of the New Shares is envisaged for Monday, 8 June 2020.

Information and Explanation of the Issuer to this News:

The private placement will commence immediately following the publication of this announcement. The order book is expected to close on 4 June 2020 prior to the start of trading, although the Company reserves the right to close the order book at any time earlier.

The expected net proceeds from the offering will be used to further expand Medios' leading position as provider of specialty pharma solutions through both organic and external growth opportunities. The additional funds allow the Company to tap attractive growth potential in additional indications, to further expand its existing partner network, and to substantially increase its production capacity for patient-specific medication. The Company continuously monitors the market to capitalize on external growth opportunities and intends to play an active role in the ongoing market consolidation process in order to accelerate its proven growth strategy.

Following the successful placement of all New Shares, the free float of Medios AG will increase from currently around 62% to up to around 66% of the share capital, which will help to further improve the liquidity of the stock and additionally support the admission to the SDAX.

The company has agreed to a lock-up period of 90 days subject to customary market exceptions.

Joh. Berenberg, Gossler & Co. KG is acting as Sole Global Coordinator and Sole Bookrunner for the private placement.
