Leipzig, 14 May 2018 – Today, the Management Board and the Supervisory Board of publity AG (ISIN DE0006972508) (the „Company“) have decided to propose to the ordinary general meeting 2018 a capital increase against cash contributions under granting of statutory subscription rights to the existing shareholders.

The Company’s main shareholder TO-Holding GmbH (Frankfurt am Main) has agreed, with respect to the aforementioned capital increase, to subscribe, in its own name, for any and all new shares to the extent other shareholders abstain from subscribing for such shares. The sole shareholder of TO-Holding GmbH is publity AG’s management board member Thomas Olek.

The capital increase will serve to finance growth and to further reinforce equity.

The general meeting will be held on 1 August 2018. Further details of the capital increase will be provided in the invitation to the ordinary general meeting.
