Pyrum Innovations AG: Supervisory Board member acquires shares from the Executive Board OTC

Dillingen /​Saar, 4 August 2023 — Pascal Klein, CEO and largest indi­vi­dual share­holder of Pyrum Inno­va­tions AG (“Pyrum”, the “Company”, ISIN: DE000A2G8ZX8), has sold a total of 4,000 Pyrum shares from his holding to Super­vi­sory Board member Jürgen Opitz over the counter (OTC) on 31 July 2023. Mr Opitz thus slightly increases his share­hol­ding and holds around 8% in Pyrum inclu­ding attri­bu­table shares. Pascal Klein conti­nues to hold around 10% of the company. The tran­sac­tion was executed as an OTC tran­sac­tion at a purchase price of EUR 50.00 per share and thus around 3.7% above the average value of the last five trading days prior to the closing on Xetra (EUR 48.23). The rele­vant noti­fi­ca­tions of Pyrum Inno­va­tions AG on direc­tors’ dealings pursuant to Art. 19 of the Market Abuse Regu­la­tion are available on the company’s website at https://​www​.pyrum​.net/​e​n​/​i​n​v​e​s​t​o​r​s​/​f​i​n​a​n​c​i​a​l​-​p​u​b​l​i​c​a​t​i​o​ns/ available.

Pascal Klein: “I still remain the largest indi­vi­dual share­holder of Pyrum. However, a larger tax payment due to the IPO has led me to sell a small part of my share­hol­ding in the company. My shares are in very good hands with Jürgen Opitz. Through the OTC tran­sac­tion, we wanted to prevent a possible influence on the share price due to the tight­ness of the market for Pyrum shares.”

About Pyrum Innovations AG

With its patented pyro­lysis tech­no­logy, Pyrum Inno­va­tions AG is active in the attrac­tive recy­cling market for used tyres and various plas­tics. Pyrum’s pyro­lysis process is largely energy self-suffi­cient and, accor­ding to the Fraun­hofer Insti­tute, saves signi­fi­cantly more CO2 emis­sions than today’s stan­dard recy­cling processes for used tyres — espe­ci­ally compared to inci­ne­ra­tion in cement plants — and produces new raw mate­rials such as pyro­lysis oil, gas and recy­cled carbon black (rCB) from the waste used as input mate­rials. In this way, Pyrum closes the mate­rial cycle and pursues a 100% sustainable busi­ness model. As a pioneer, Pyrum Inno­va­tions AG was the first company in the waste tyre recy­cling sector to receive REACH regis­tra­tion from the Euro­pean Chemi­cals Agency (ECHA) for the pyro­lysis oil it produces back in 2018. This means that the oil is reco­g­nised as an offi­cial raw mate­rial that can be used in produc­tion processes. In addi­tion, Pyrum has received ISCC PLUS certi­fi­ca­tion for the pyro­lysis oil and the rCB. Both products are ther­e­fore reco­g­nised as sustainable and rene­wable raw mate­rials. Pyrum has also received ISO 14001 certi­fi­ca­tion for its envi­ron­mental manage­ment system and ISO 9001 certi­fi­ca­tion for its quality manage­ment system. These successes have also been reco­g­nised by inter­na­tional experts in the tyre industry. For example, Pyrum was hono­ured at the first Recircle Awards in the cate­gory Best Tyre Recy­cling Inno­va­tion and has been a fina­list for the German SME award three times in a row.
