Investor Relations News QIII 2016
Capital Increase of MetrioPharm AG on 05-Sep-2016
On 05 September 2016, MetrioPharm carried out a capital increase on the basis of exercised subscription rights and issued 910,000 new shares at a subscription price of CHF 0.90. The subscription rights of the existing shareholders were granted through this small capital increase. Thus, MetrioPharm AG is now able to recruit new investors within the scope of a larger capital increase. The Board of MetrioPharm decided to separate these two capital increases in order to gain flexibility in terms of time.
