Venture Capital/Private Equity/Investments


Together with quirin bank AG, Leonardo Venture GmbH & Co. KGaA set the placement price of the shares on offer within the context of the public offering and the international private placement at EUR 2.60 per new share.

The ordinary capital increase comprised a combined offering consisting of an indirect offer of subscription to the existing shareholders and a subordinate public offering, as well as an international private placement. A total of 6,690,300 new shares were offered as part of the capital increase. Of these, existing shareholders subscribed to 2,755,278 shares at a subscription price of EUR2.60 each. The 3,935,022 unsubscribed new shares were placed within the scope of a public offering and an international private placement, also at a placement price of EUR 2.60.

During a roadshow from 12 to 22 October, Leonardo Venture was able to convince many reputable private and institutional investors in Germany and abroad of the promising prospects. As a consequence, the demand significantly exceeded the number of shares available within the context of the combined offering.

The gross income for the company from the issue based on the capital increase amounts to around EUR 17.4 million. The shares of Leonardo Venture GmbH & Co. KGaA are planned for listing in the Prime Standard on 29 October 2007 after registration of the completed capital increase.
