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.

About Veganz

Veganz – Good for you, better for every­one – is the brand for plant-based food. Founded in Berlin in 2011, Veganz became known as the Euro­pean vegan super­mar­ket chain. With a color­ful and life-affir­m­ing company philos­o­phy, Veganz managed to break open the vegan niche and estab­lish the plant-based nutri­tion trend on the market. The current prod­uct port­fo­lio includes around 120 prod­ucts (101 active prod­ucts as of Septem­ber 30, 2021) across 17 cate­gories and is avail­able in more than half of all Euro­pean coun­tries and in 22,264 points of sale (POS) glob­ally as of June 30, 2021, exclud­ing Veganz‘ own three stores in Berlin, Germany. In addi­tion, the Veganz prod­uct port­fo­lio is contin­u­ously being expanded to include high-qual­ity, inno­v­a­tive items and the sustain­able value chain is constantly being improved. For this commit­ment, Veganz was the only German company to be voted one of the top inno­v­a­tive brands and Germany’s most inno­v­a­tive food brand in an exclu­sive Handels­blatt rank­ing in 2021.
