The Social Chain AG issues convertible bond

Berlin, March 16, 2021 - The Management Board of The Social Chain AG (WKN: A1YC99, ISIN: DE000A1YC996, Ticker: PU11) ("Company") has resolved to issue a convertible bond with subscription rights for shareholders.

The total issue volume is up to EUR 25,000,000.00. Some existing shareholders have assigned the subscription rights to which they are entitled to the issuing bank by way of corresponding agreements, so that the subscription offer now only relates to a volume of EUR 7,999,000.00 and will be carried out without a prospectus on the basis of a key information document (KID). The issuing bank will offer the unsubscribed convertible bonds for purchase to qualified investors in an international private placement to be conducted in Germany and other selected jurisdictions outside the United States of America pursuant to Regulation S under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933 ("Securities Act"). Unsubscribed convertible notes will be offered in a private placement exclusively to qualified investors. Members of the Management Board and the Supervisory Board have declared their willingness to participate in the private placement.

The convertible notes will have a maturity of three years. The initial conversion price, the initial conversion premium and the interest rate of the convertible bond will not yet be fixed at the time of publication of the subscription offer and are expected to be determined by the Executive Board with the consent of the Supervisory Board on or about March 25, 2021, based on the outcome of a bookbuilding process conducted by the issuing bank.

The subscription period is expected to run from March 18, 2021 to March 31, 2021. It is expected that the subscription offer will be published in the Federal Gazette on March 17, 2021. The Company will also publish a basic information sheet for the convertible bond on the Company's website at https://www.socialchain.com.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the issuance of the convertible bond mainly to finance the further growth of its existing business activities, for selected acquisitions in the area of social media & eCommerce, and for general corporate purposes.
