Vegan “SPIRIT” products with organic quality already available in almost 4,000 stores

The purpose of issuing the convertible bond is to finance the company’s planned dynamic growth. On the one hand, the distribution network in Germany and neighbouring countries is to be extended, and on the other hand, sales-promoting marketing expenditures are to be intensified and the broadening of the product range as well as the additional introduction of services in the area of Biohacking are to be driven forward. The vegan “SPIRIT” products in organic quality are already listed in around 4,000 branches of renowned retail companies and petrol station shops in Germany and, since May 2022, also in Austria. The approximately 4,000 sales outlets in Germany also include retail chains such as Tegut, Kaufland, Budni and Edeka. In May, Biohacks (Schweiz) AG also commenced sales of the “SPIRIT” drinks in the flavours Mango & Cactus, Berry & Dragon and Lime & Kiwi at JET-branded petrol stations nationwide. In this segment, the company is already represented in around 300 stations of the Orlen brand. In Austria, the products are now also distributed through about 600 branches of the local market leaders SPAR International and Billa. An expansion in the Alpine country to a total of at least 1,000 branches is being planned. With this gradual widespread market launch of high-quality vegan products with organic quality, Biohacks (Schweiz) AG is accelerating the growth course it started in 2020. Further new “SPIRIT” products are to be launched to the market in 2022.

“Biohacks is consistently evolving into a nationwide established supplier of vegan products in organic quality in Germany and also increasingly abroad. The subscribers to our bond now have the opportunity to participate in our expansion at attractive conditions,” comments the company’s CEO, Dr. Ingo Lange, on the current development.

Financial realignment since early 2022 – business valuations of Biohacks GmbH of €108 million

The bond issue is a further step in the financial realignment that Biohacks (Schweiz) AG has been consistently pursuing since the beginning of 2022. In the first quarter, the company based in Lachen, Switzerland, was already able to increase its equity in two steps by a total of CHF 53 million through the acquisition of a strategic investor and the optimisation of the balance sheet structure – via the incorporation of Biohacks GmbH into Biohacks (Schweiz) AG (confirmed by the Swiss Federal Auditor). Biohacks (Schweiz) AG has legally completed the transactions in such a way that tax-free dividends of CHF 53 million are available for possible distributions for future new investors. At the end of 2020, Biohacks GmbH was valued at  €108 million by the experts at Kleeberg Valuation, Munich, in an expert opinion on the enterprise value in accordance with IDW S 1.
