Marinomed Biotech AG (“Marinomed” or the “company”) received positive feedback from numerous domestic and international investors during the roadshow of its ongoing offering. While firm investor participation to buy new shares was obtained, the current adverse market conditions with high volatility did not allow to fully achieve the targeted offer volume. Marinomed therefore suspends the current offer period (which runs until today, 5 pm CET). Subject to the market environment, the company plans to resume the offer period presumably at the beginning of 2019.
The suspension of the offer period also relates to the qualifying public offering in accordance with the terms and conditions of the convertible bonds issued by Marinomed Biotech AG in 2017, which are traded on the Third Market of the Vienna Stock Exchange.
