Hamburg, 27th April 2017 – Varengold Bank AG (Symbol: VG8) plans to implement a capital increase against cash contributions with an indirect subscription right for existing shareholders by means of Authorised Capital 2016 by the end of the first half of 2017. The Management Board made a corresponding principle resolution today. The Supervisory Board has already been informed about this. The capital increase is to be legally designed in such a way that it does not require a prospectus under German law (§ 1(2)(4) WpPG [German Securities Prospectus Act]).
The planned strengthening of the Bank's own capital base is intended to provide a solid foundation for extending business activities. In addition, the Bank's growth is to be promoted by broadening the product portfolio and developing new customer groups. The Management Board will provide timely information on the details of the planned capital increase.
