The new shares are to be placed with institutional investors in Germany and other European countries as part of a private placement using an accelerated bookbuilding process. The private placement will be initiated immediately after this announcement. The number of new shares to be issued and their placement price will be determined by the Management Board with the approval of the Supervisory Board after completion of the accelerated bookbuilding process. The new shares are to be included in the Open Market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.

The proceeds from the issue will be used in part to refinance the purchase price for the acquisition of the shares in ARIVA.DE AG and also for further growth of the wallstreet:online group.
