Munich, 10 July 2019 – cyan AG (“cyan” or the “company”) has successfully placed 888,594 new shares from a capital increase from authorised capital against cash contribution with institutional investors through an accelerated bookbuilding process. The placement price was EUR 28.00 per share. The placement of the new shares will result in gross proceeds of EUR 24.9 million to the company. Following the capital increase, the company’s share capital amounts to EUR 9,774,538.00 and is divided into 9,774,538 shares.
After registration of the capital increase with the commercial register, the new shares are expected to be included in the existing listing in the open market (Scale) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange on July 11, 2019. Delivery of the new shares is envisaged for July 12, 2019.
