PAION AG convenes extraordinary general meeting for capital reductions by redemption and consolidation of shares

Aachen, December 14, 2022 – The Management Board of specialty pharmaceutical company PAION AG (ISIN DE000A0B65S3; ticker symbol PA8 (Frankfurt Stock Exchange, Prime Standard)) (the “Company”) today resolved to convene an extraordinary general meeting on capital reductions by way of redemption and consolidation of shares. The general meeting is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, January 25, 2023, at 10:00 a.m. (CET) at the Tivoli Aachen, Business & Event Section, Krefelder Straße 205, 52070 Aachen, Germany.

According to the proposal of the Management and Supervisory Boards of the Company, the current share capital of the Company in the amount of EUR 71,336,992.00, divided into 71,336,992 no-par value bearer shares (“PAION Shares”), shall be reduced by way of an ordinary capital reduction through a consolidation of shares in a ratio of 10:1, i.e. each ten PAION Shares shall be consolidated into one PAION Share. In order to achieve an even reduction ratio, two PAION Shares provided by a shareholder free of charge shall be redeemed first, thereby reducing the share capital by EUR 2.00 in simplified form. The share capital, which will have been reduced to EUR 71,336,990.00 following this redemption, is then to be reduced to EUR 7,133,699.00 by way of an ordinary capital reduction through the consolidation of shares.

The aim of the capital reduction is to achieve a share price of the Company above the pro rata nominal value of one PAION Share in the share capital of EUR 1.00 each; a repayment to the shareholders is not intended. This is intended to enable the Company to alternatively or additionally raise funds from a capital increase in the future.

The Executive Board and the Supervisory Board do not intend to utilise the authorised capital in an amount of more than 50% of the reduced share capital.
