Frank­furt am Main — ACXIT Capi­tal Part­ners acted as IPO advi­sor to Veganz Group AG (the “Company” or “Veganz”) the Berlin-based purely plant-base­­d/­­ve­­gan food company awarded Germany’s most inno­va­tive food brand in 20211), on its successful initial public offe­ring (“IPO”) on the Frank­furt Stock Exch­ange (Frank­fur­ter Wertpapierbörse).

In the course of the road­show process, all 547,120 offe­red ordi­nary bearer shares with no par value (auf den Inha­ber lautende Stamm­ak­tien ohne Nenn­be­trag (Stück­ak­tien)) of the Company („Shares“) were placed with inves­tors in the IPO at EUR 87.00 per Share. The place­ment compri­sed 388,733 new Shares from a capi­tal increase, 87,024 exis­ting Shares from the holdings of the selling share­hol­ders as well as an over-allo­t­­ment consis­ting of 71,363 exis­ting Shares from the holdings of the lending share­hol­ders. Ther­e­fore, the total volume of the IPO amounts to around EUR 47.6 million.

Gross proceeds from the sale of the new shares in the IPO amount to around EUR 33.8 million. Veganz intends to use the net proceeds prima­rily for the estab­lish­ment of the new produc­tion site near Berlin as well as invest­ments in the further orga­nic and inor­ga­nic growth, e.g. for rese­arch and deve­lo­p­ment, expan­sion of field force, marke­ting and further expan­sion in selec­ted Euro­pean countries.

“Since our foun­da­tion more than 10 years ago we at Veganz are pioneers, setting stan­dards in our markets. Having accom­plished the first ‘vegan IPO’ in Germany is another mile­stone in our history. We welcome all new inves­tors at Veganz and cordi­ally invite ever­yone to parti­ci­pate with us in the poten­tial of the vegan food market. Now, it is about imple­men­ting our growth stra­tegy and fully seize the oppor­tu­ni­ties for Veganz”, reflects Jan Bredack, foun­der and CEO of Veganz.

The shares of Veganz carry the inter­na­tio­nal secu­ri­ties iden­ti­fi­ca­tion number (ISIN) DE000A3E5ED2, the German Secu­ri­ties Code (Wert­­pa­­pier-Kenn-Nummer (WKN)) A3E5ED and the ticker symbol VEZ.
