The Executive Board of cyan AG has decided today, with the approval of the Supervisory Board, to carry out a capital increase against a contribution in kind under exclusion of subscription rights. The aim of the measure is to offer the remaining minority shareholders of I-New Unified Mobile Solutions AG ("I-New") after the majority takeover by cyan in July 2018 an exchange of shares for shares of cyan AG and thus to increase the holding in I-New from currently around 82% to 100%. In addition, it is planned to redeem third-parties liabilities of I-New. Accordingly, cyan decided today to increase the share capital of the company from currently 8,764,923 Euro by up to 121,021 Euro to up to 8,885,944 Euro by issuing up to 121,021 new shares at an issue price of 22.75 Euro. 94,340 shares will be offered to the minority shareholders for subscription, the remaining 26,681 shares to the remaining largest minority shareholder for the contribution of loan receivables. The new shares of cyan AG are entitled to dividends as of January 1, 2018 and will be included in trading after registration in the commercial register. It is planned that the minority shareholders of I-New agree to a voluntary self-commitment for their new shares of cyan AG not to sell the shares for a period of twelve months without cyan's consent.
