(PresseBox) ( Quierschied-Göttelborn, )
Nanogate AG, a leading international integrated systems provider for high-performance surfaces, has gained a new anchor investor. The investment company, Luxempart S.A., now holds around 10 % of the shares, which derive from the previous anchor investor, BIP Investment Partners. BIP Investment Partners has completely released its equity holding and has surrendered its shares to Luxempart S.A., among others. Nanogate AG’s free float therefore amounts to roughly 64 %.

Nanogate AG’s CEO, Ralf Zastrau, commented: “We are pleased to have gained a new, long-term and business-minded anchor investor in Luxempart. Luxempart has many years of experience in supporting rapidly expanding technology companies. The investment company intends to comprehensively support Nanogate’s further course of growth, thereby contributing towards an increase in the company’s value. HeidelbergCapital and Luxempart provide the Group with a solid foundation for implementing the ongoing Phase5 growth strategy, with which we intend to exceed EUR 100 million in sales and increase profitability in the medium term. We would like to thank BIP Investment Partners for their many years of support.”

As at 31 December 2015, Nanogate AG’s subscribed capital came to EUR 3,377,716, which is divided into 3,377,716 shares. The number of shares was raised in recent months due to the exercise of employee stock options and a capital increase against contributions in kind. The smaller-scale capital increase was part of the transaction to acquire the outstanding shares in the GfO AG subsidiary, as announced in July 2015.

Overview of the new shareholder structure:

Free float:                                                  64 %

Anchor investors and Management:             36 %
