Munich / March 28, 2018. Shares in cyan AG (ISIN DE000A2E4SV8 / WKN A2E4SV / Ticker CYR:GY), a leading European provider of intelligent, white labeled IT security solutions, have been listed to trade today on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange's Scale segment. The commencement of trade in the shares follows a very successful placement phase, at the end of which 1.38 million shares (incl. Greenshoe) were placed at the upper end of the price range at EUR23.00 per share. All of the shares offered stem from an increase in capital, thus the company has received proceeds of some EUR31.7 million.
As planned, cyan has used part of the proceeds to fund the full acquisition of Cyan Security Group GmbH, which acts as a holding for the operational units of the cyan Group. Thus, cyan AG now owns 100 percent in all operating entities in the group. The remaining proceeds from the share offering shall chiefly be used to realize organic and external growth potentials designed to strengthen the competitive position of cyan AG.
Furthermore, with Surf Telecom of Brazil, cyan AG has gained another new high-profile contractual partner for its solutions. Surf Telecom is the fastest growing mobile virtual network operator ("MVNO") in Brazil. Its services are distributed through Brazil's postal service and the company currently serves more than 700,000 customers. Surf Telecom addresses a market in Brazil that comprises more than 200 million mobile phone users.
Just a few weeks ago, in early March 2018, cyan announced that it had signed a deal with I-New Unified Mobile Solutions ("I-New"), a leading supplier of MVNO platforms whose clients include prestigious corporates such as Media Markt Mobil and Saturn Mobil in Austria, and Virgin Mobile in Colombia, Chile, Mexico, and Peru. The cyan solution is to be integrated into more than 20 existing client
installations (MNVOs) of I-New, which caters to the needs of more than five million mobile network users worldwide. The first I-New client, Flash Telecom in Mexico, will go live with cyan's solutions in the coming days.

The significant new contractual deals recently concluded with business partners around the world show that our company's solutions continue to make advances in a competitive market. We are confident that we shall be announcing more new customer relationships in the course of 2018, thus serving to accelerate growth still further."
