Currently, the market capitalization amounts to 640 mio. EUR (Last price XETRA on May 28, 2021). The average trading volume in April 2021 was at approx. 4.5 mio. EUR per day across all stock exchanges.
Furthermore, the planned conversion to a SE was completed. The extraordinary general meeting on April 15, 2021 has, with its approval of the conversion, followed the proposal of the Board of Directors unanimously. Following a comprehensive review of the conversion by the Maltese Business Register, the Company is now registered as a SE under registration number SE 15, in the Maltese Business Register.
The conversion into a SE will have no effect on the business partners, employees and shareholders of Media and Games Invest Group. The rights of the shareholders do not change as a result of the new legal structure of the SE and also the stock exchange listings remain unchanged.
Remco Westermann, CEO and Chairman of the Board of MGI: „I am pleased that we have completed the conversion to a SE successfully. The conversion gives us an EU-wide and internationally accepted and respected legal framework. Overall, we see an increased interest from investors in MGI.
