Frankfurt am Main, December 18th, 2017 - Heliad Equity Partners GmbH & Co. KGaA (ISIN: DE000A0L1NN5) has subscribed SLEEPZ AG's ("SLEEPZ") capital increase of a total of 690,000 new shares at a subscription price of EUR 1.60 per share.

Through this investment and the successful merger of Cubitabo GmbH into sleepz Home GmbH, a subsidiary of SLEEPZ, Heliad strongly encourages the path towards strategic cooperation already indicated in mid-2017. The merger of Cubitabo GmbH into sleepz Home GmbH takes place against the issuing of sleepz-Home shares with the aim of exchanging them for SLEEPZ shares at the rate of EUR 1.80 each, following an external expert opinion. Already in the course of the integration phase planned for the first quarter of 2018, further acquisitions in the field of sleeping and living should be examined and promoted.

Thomas Hanke, CEO of Heliad, comments: "Over the last few months, it has been shown that the merger of SLEEPZ and Cubitabo offers considerable synergy potential. The teams and competencies are very complementary, which is why we expect fast operational success and rapid growth. Structurally, the SLEEPZ Group is also gaining strength with the merger of Cubitabo, as the previous Cubitabo shareholders includes both financial and strategic investors who firmly believe in joint success. We look forward to a challenging year in 2018 and to playing a major role in the future development of SLEEPZ. "
