Pyrum Innovations AG: Start of trading on Euronext Growth Oslo after successful private placement
Oslo, 30 September 2021. Pyrum Innovations AG (“Pyrum” or the “Company”), an innovative recycling technology company based in Dillingen, Germany, is pleased to announce today’s start of trading of its shares on Euronext Growth market in Oslo, Norway, a multilateral trading facility operated by the Oslo Stock Exchange.
The listing follows the successful Private Placement of Pyrum shares with a total transaction size of approx. NOK 476.4 million (approx. EUR 46.4 million). The private placement attracted strong interest from German, Norwegian, as well as Nordic and international high-quality institutional investors and was significantly oversubscribed excluding shares pre-allocated to cornerstone investors. The cornerstone investors consisted of Continental Reifen Deutschland GmbH, Kalodion Fonds X (Discovergy) GmbH & Co. KG and OHL Gutermuth Industrial Valves GmbH. Pyrum has enjoyed the support of its existing shareholders over time and now is pleased to receive new support from leading investors that share the Company's view on the market.
Pascal Klein, CEO of Pyrum Innovations AG: “This is an historic step for our company, which will lead Pyrum Innovations AG into a new era of growth. I want to express my gratitude for this achievement to my team and all the supporters of our business in the past and of course in the completed private placement. We are looking forward to an exciting and promising future for Pyrum, in which we want to contribute our part to the achievement of a circular economy.”
Pareto Securities AS (the "Manager") acted as financial advisor to the Company and Bookrunner in connection with the Private Placement and Listing. Advokatfirmaet Selmer AS and Dentons Europe LLP are acting as legal advisors and IR.on AG as Financial PR advisor to Pyrum, while Advokatfirmaet BAHR AS and Hogan Lovells International LLP are acting as legal advisors to the Manager.
Pyrum Innovations AG is active in the attractive recycling market for end-of-life-tires with its patented pyrolysis technology. Pyrum's pyrolysis plants are completely energy self-sufficient, save almost 100 % of the CO2 emissions normally generated during the disposal of end-of-life-tires in a cement plant and produce new raw materials such as pyrolysis oil, gas and recovered carbon black (rCB) from the waste used as input materials. In this way, Pyrum closes the recyclable material loop and pursues a 100% sustainable business model. As a pioneer, Pyrum Innovations AG was the first company in the end-of-life-tire recycling sector to receive REACH registration from the EU for the pyrolysis oil it produces. This means that the oil is recognised as an official raw material. In addition, Pyrum is researching on new input materials as well as on new raw materials to be produced, such as the successfully ongoing tests for the extraction of hydrogen from the gas obtained by means of the patented technology. These achievements have also been recognised by international experts in the tire industry. For example, Pyrum won the Best Tyre Recycling Innovation category at the inaugural Recircle Awards.
