Today, BNP Paribas partially exercised the Greenshoe option granted to it in connection with the initial public offering (IPO) of SAF Simulation, Analysis and Forecasting AG (ISIN CH0024848738, WKN A0JD78). As part of the IPO of SAF AG, several selling shareholders had granted the underwriters the option to acquire up to an additional 12.5 percent of the original placement volume of 2,416,911 shares at the offer price of EUR 17.60 per share (so-called "Greenshoe option"). On the basis of this option, the Lead Manager had allotted 302,114 additional shares when the allotment under the IPO was made on 5 April.  Once listing commenced, BNP Paribas took isolated stabilisation measures. After the stabilisation period expired, BNP Paribas exercised the Greenshoe option for the account of the underwriters with respect to 158,507 shares. Thus, a total of 2,575,418 shares (including 158,507 Greenshoe shares) were placed in connection with the SAF AG IPO and are now in free float. Taking into account the partial exercise of the Greenshoe option, 46.5 percent of SAF AG's share capital has now been placed as part of the IPO. The partial exercise of the Greenshoe option has resulted in the following shareholder structure: Dr. Andreas von Beringe 986,600 shares (17.8%), Prof. Dr. Gerhard Arminger 986,400 shares (17.8%), Ventizz Capital Fund II Limited Partnership 383,053 shares (6.9%), Techinvest Beteiligungsgesellschaft mbH & Co. KG 296,371 shares (5.4%), PAARL Ventures GmbH 206,737 shares (3.7%), New Value 49,321 shares (0.9 %), Stock Option Plan 54,750 shares (0.9%), free float 2,575,418 shares (46.5%).
