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

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 22 December 2003 can be downloaded from the website of BRAIN AG at www.brain-biotech.de/en/investor-relations/ipo.

“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.”
