A team led by capital markets lawyer Dr. Thorsten Kuthe, Partner at Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek, advised amalphi AG in connection with the acquisition of all shares in medondo AG, including all preparatory reorganization measures. Today, the shareholders’ meeting of amalphi AG resolved the capital measures required for the acquisition, thus paving the way for the transaction. The acquisition of medondo AG, a provider of a self-developed, cloud-based software solution for the medical sector, will allow amalphi AG to expand its business into a fast-growing segment.
In February, the team led by Dr. Thorsten Kuthe had already advised amalphi AG on a cash capital increase with subscription rights, whose net proceeds were primarily used to acquire about 17 percent of the shares in medondo AG. Today, the amalphi AG shareholders’ meeting resolved a mixed cash and non-cash capital increase of up to EUR 6,078,905.00 by issuing up to 6,078,905 new shares to acquire the remaining about 83 percent. The amalphi AG shareholders will be granted the statutory subscription right at a ratio of 5:7. The new shares not subscribed by shareholders in the context of the subscription offer will be offered to medondo shareholders against contribution in kind by contributing their respective medondo shares. Up to 1,698,913 new shares are to be issued as part of the cash capital increase and 4,379,992 new shares as part of the capital increase against contribution in kind. As additional consideration for the contribution of their shares, medondo shareholders will receive three convertible bonds of amalphi AG (mixed contribution in kind), whose (mandatory) conversion will only occur if medondo AG achieves certain pre-defined staggered sales targets by December 31, 2023. Depending on the degree to which those targets are achieved, up to 9,715,664 additional new shares of amalphi AG will be issued to medondo shareholders as a result of possible conversions.
