TubeSolar AG: Planned acquisition of stake in US company Ascent Solar Technologies, Inc. secures long-term access to solar thin film technology

Augsburg, January 4, 2021: TubeSolar AG (ISIN DE000A2PXQD4, XETRA, primary market Düsseldorf, m:access) plans to acquire a strategic stake in Ascent Solar Technologies, Inc. (OTC market "AscentSolar", ticker symbol: ASTI). For the intended investment of 2.5 million US dollars TubeSolar AG will receive AscentSolar shares at a price of 0.0001 US dollars per share. Taking into account outstanding capital adjustments, TubeSolar AG would in the future hold approximately 15 percent of the share capital of Ascent Solar Technologies, Inc..

Through this planned step, TubeSolar AG is implementing its "second-source strategy" and tapping into another source of supply in addition to its existing European supplier for flexible copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) photovoltaic cells.

The investment is to be financed from existing liquid funds. TubeSolar AG assumes that the contract will be signed in the short term.

International School Augsburg (ISA): Investment in den Rohstoff Bildung

Die in Gersthofen bei Augsburg ansässige International School Augsburg (ISA) plant als erste internationale Schule in Deutschland den Gang an die Börse und macht damit erstmals das Thema „Bildung“ unter ESG-Kriterien investierbar. Die ISA, an der derzeit rund 330 Schüler eingeschrieben sind, ist als internationale Schule Teil eines globalen Schulnetzwerkes, welches das in Deutschland anerkannte IB-Diploma als Hochschulzugangsberechtigung anbietet. Im Rahmen des geplanten Campus-Neubaus sollen die Kapazitäten erweitert und damit die hohe Nachfrage nach privaten Bildungsleistungen in Deutschland und in der Region erfüllt werden. GBC-Analyst Cosmin Filker hat mit dem ISA-Vorstand Marcus Wagner gesprochen.
