Hamburg, 6 July 2022 – The Management Board of Varengold Bank AG (symbol: VG8) decided today to propose a cash capital increase to the Annual General Meeting on 24 August 2022, excluding existing shareholders' subscription rights. The increase should not exceed a proportionate amount of 10% of the current share capital. The subscription price is to be determined at a later date. The Management Board will provide information about further details of the planned capital increase in good time. The issue is to be structured without a prospectus.
The planned strengthening of the equity capital base is intended to enable the expansion of business activities on a stable foundation and to accelerate the growth of the bank. On the background of this strategic decision, a draft resolution on the authorisation for the future issuance of profit participation rights and hybrid bonds that meet the requirements for regulatory recognition as additional tier 1 capital ("AT1 capital") is also to be submitted to the Annual General Meeting in 2022.
The convening of the Annual General Meeting will be published in good time in advance in the Federal Gazette and made available on the company's website.
