BRAIN IPO: End of the stabilisation period and exercise of the Greenshoe

Zwingenberg, March 10, 2016: B.R.A.I.N. Biotechnology Research And
Information Network AG ("BRAIN AG"; ISIN DE0005203947 / WKN 520394) was
informed by ODDO SEYDLER BANK AG that the stabilisation period in
connection with the initial public offering ended yesterday, as planned. On
the same day, ODDO SEYDLER exercised the Greenshoe Option in the amount of
108,054 shares, with the effect that all shares, which had been
over-allotted at the IPO, are now fully placed. The over-allotment shares
were provided from the holdings of MP Beteiligungs-GmbH by way of a share
loan. With the exercise of the Greenshoe Option, the MP Beteiligungs-GmbH
holdings of BRAIN shares decrease to 39.2%, resulting in a free float of
currently 22.0%.

In connection with the BRAIN IPO, ODDO SEYDLER BANK AG was entitled, as
stabilisation manager, to carry out measures to support the stock market
price of BRAIN shares (stabilisation measures) until the thirtieth calendar
day after the first day of trading of the shares, which was on February 9,
2016. Stabilisation measures were taken only to a small extent on February
9, 2016, the first day of the stabilisation period. They took place within
a price range of 8.90 Euros and 9.00 Euros. The respective notice pursuant
to article 9(3) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 2273/2003 of December 22,
2003 can be downloaded from the website of BRAIN AG at

"The outcome of the stabilisation period and the positive share price
development since the start of trading show that our shares have been
sustainably placed in the capital market. Also, this confirms the trust
that our investors place in the long-term growth potential of BRAIN AG and
the field of bioeconomy in general. Our IPO project is now successfully
concluded with the exercise of the Greenshoe Option", says Dr Jürgen Eck,
CEO of BRAIN AG. "This motivates us even more to take advantage of the
tremendous potential of the bioeconomy while we continue to drive forward
and expand our industrialisation strategy."
