ASMALLWORLD AG successfully completes capital increase

Zurich, 31.10.2023 – Today, ASMALLWORLD AG announces the successful completion of a capital increase, previously announced on October 9th, 2023, within the capital band. Investors subscribed all of the 2'742'742 new shares, which will be traded for the first time today. The objectives of the capital increase were to reduce the company’s debt, resulting in a smaller interest burden, while also opening up more strategic options for the future on the back of a stronger balance sheet. 

ASMALLWORLD AG announces that its capital increase, previously announced on October 9th, 2023, has been successfully completed. After the issuance of the 2’742’742 shares, the share capital of ASMALLWORLD AG now amounts to CHF 14’461’457.00, divided into 11'362'153 registered shares with a nominal value of CHF 1.00 each. The issuing price was CHF 1.50.

The anchor investor, Pellegrino Capital AG, has taken over 2’534’888 of the newly issued shares and is thus further expanding its stake in ASMALLWORLD AG. As part of the capital increase, a large part of an outstanding loan from Pellegrino Capital AG was used to pay for the newly issued shares, which reduced the company's debt capital by CHF 3’802’332. As a result, the company's capital structure was strengthened, creating more strategic options for the future while simultaneously reducing the company’s interest burden in an environment of rising interest rates.

"The successful capital increase reflects the confidence of our investors in ASMALLWORLD. The management of ASMALLWORLD would like to sincerely thank its investors for their trust, in particular Pellegrino Capital AG, which has further extended its commitment to the company," comments Jan Luescher, CEO of ASMALLWORLD.
