GOVECS AG postpones planned IPO

Munich, November 7, 2018 - GOVECS AG ("GOVECS", "the Company") the leading manufacturer of electric scooters in Europe, has decided today, jointly with its existing shareholders, to postpone the planned Initial Public Offering ("IPO") due to the currently difficult capital market environment.

All the underlying drivers of GOVECS' business are positive. Especially the strong growth of the European e-scooter market offers the Company attractive growth prospects. The financing of the growth will be secured by the existing shareholders.

GOVECS will continue to closely monitor the capital market environment with regard to a suitable timing to possibly resume the IPO.
