Public disclosure of an inside information according to Article 17 paragraph 1 Regulation (EU) No. 596/2014 on market abuse

Göttelborn, Germany, (PresseBox) - Nanogate AG, a leading international integrated systems provider for high-performance surfaces, has successfully improved its financial strength and has therefore increased the company’s share capital using authorised capital. Subscription rights were excluded. The funds will serve to extend the financial leeway for implementing the Phase5 growth strategy.

As part of the capital increase, the company’s share capital increased from the current EUR 3,377,716.00 by EUR 331,454.00 to EUR 3,709,170.00 by issuing 331,454 new no-par-value shares via partial utilisation of the existing authorised capital against contribution in cash. The subscription rights of existing shareholders were excluded. The new shares were privately placed with selected, qualified and long-term institutional investors in Germany and abroad at a placement price of EUR 30.00 per share. The capital increase was significantly oversubscribed. The new anchor investor Luxempart S.A. has participated in the capital increase considerably. Holders of the new stocks will be eligible to share in dividends from the 2016 financial year. Nanogate intends to utilise the cash inflow to finance its planned growth in additional technology and capacities. The revenue shall also be used to partly refinance the April 2016 acquisition of a 75 % stake in the plastics specialist Goletz. The capital increase was accompanied by M.M. Warburg & CO.
