Information and Explanation of the Issuer to this News:
The change of name is to clarify the company's alignment towards investors. The new name 'Media and Games Invest plc' complies with its focus to acquire shares in the media and gaming sectors as a strategic investment holding and to further develop the assets following a 'buy, integrate, build & improve' principle. Within the fast-growing media and gaming markets, the company continues to build on using arising M&A opportunities as well as platform and synergy potentials between the markets and its portfolio companies in the most ideal way.
The acquisition of the ReachHero shares is the first direct investment of Media and Games Invest plc (short: MGI) within the media sector. It is expected to cause significant synergies with the gamigo media companies adspree and Mediakraft as well as to have positive effects on the gaming unit of the gamigo group. Therefore, the transaction is exemplary for the orientation of MGI. As announced on February 26, 2019, 65,42 % of ReachHero's shares have been acquired, with also the option to acquire the remaining shares as well.
A further increase of shares regarding the most important participation, the gamigo AG, is planned. At this time, 38 % of shares and 53 % of voting rights are being held. The goal is to increase the participation to more than 65 %, through the acquisition of shares from minority shareholders. For years, the gamigo group shows a steady and continuous increase in revenue and earnings. With more than 20 M&A transactions in the past 5 years, gamigo successfully positioned itself as a consolidator on the fast-growing media and gaming markets and proved that its acquisition-driven platform strategy is successful.
CEO Remco Westermann: 'We have a high level of expertise in two fast-growing markets which have many things in common and which provide opportunities for great synergies. gamigo shall be more closely involved in the future to elevate more synergies. Therefore, we want to increase our share of the company. We proved in the past that we can invest, integrate and develop in a profitable way. Our focus makes us unique in the market which shall now also be expressed by our namechange.

Aves One AG: Kursziel 13,60 €
Die Aves One AG ist auch in der Corona-Krise als Bestandshalter von langlebigen Logistik-Assets mit langfristigen Mietverträgen gut aufgestellt. Das Unternehmen hat als Guidance einen Umsatz und ein EBITDA mindestens auf Vorjahresniveau verkündet. Unseres Erachtens sollte dies auch ohne Zukäufe gut machbar sein, da die im abgelaufenen Geschäftsjahr 2019 erworbenen Assets bereits zu einer höheren Umsatzbasis führen sollten. Auf Basis unseres DCF-Modells haben wir ein Kursziel in Höhe von 13,60 € ermittelt und vergeben ein KAUFEN-Rating.
