Berlin, 13 November 2019 - Die DiaMonTech AG ("DiaMonTech" or the "Company"), a young medical technology company, has set the price range for its planned Initial Public Offering (IPO) on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (Prime Standard) at 32.00 euros to 38.00 euros per share.
Thorsten Lubinski, CEO of DiaMonTech: "We operate in one of the most attractive growth markets with currently more than 400 million diabetics worldwide. With our portable "D-Pocket" we can for the first time provide them a precise non-invasive blood glucose measurement and thus make their life much easier. We are planning a market launch at the end of 2020. The proceeds from the IPO will enable us to accelerate our development and thus offer our products more quickly to a large number of diabetics. I am pleased that the subscription period for the new shares begins on 14 November which is World Diabetes Day."
Expected issue volume of up to 68 million euros
The offering comprises a total of up to 1,796,875 shares and consists of two components:
1. Up to 1,562,500 newly issued ordinary shares from a capital increase against contributions in cash
2. Up to 234,375 ordinary shares, which will also be serviced within a potential over-allotment which is covered by a greenshoe option also from new shares
DiaMonTech AG and existing shareholders have agreed to a lock-up period of 12 months.
Assuming that all offered shares are placed and the greenshoe option is fully exercised, the issue volume would be in a range of 57.5 million euros and 68.3 million euros. This implies a total market capitalization (after inflow of the net proceeds) between around 216 million euros and around 255 million euros with a free float of around 26.7 percent.
The Company intends to invest the net proceeds in the planned growth and use the funds in particular for the further development of the "D-Pocket", the start of serial production as well as marketing and sales.
The final offering price will be determined by means of a bookbuilding process and is expected to be set on 26 November 2019. The offer period begins on 14 November 2019 and ends on 25 November 2019 at 12:00 CET for private investors and on 26 November 2019 at 16:30 CET for institutional investors. The first day of trading on the regulated market (Prime Standard) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange is planned for 29 November.
