Berlin, 15 March 2022 - The Social Chain AG (WKN: A1YC99, ISIN:DE000A1YC996, Ticker: PU11) (the "Company") today completed the notarized sale and purchase agreement relating to a part of the shares in KoRo Handels GmbH based in Berlin (the "KoRo") owned directly by the Company and indirectly through its 100% subsidiary The Social Chain Group AG. The transaction is taking place as part of the investment into KoRo Handels GmbH by several internationally renowned institutional financial investors and various other angel investors, with whom an investment and shareholders' agreement was also concluded today.

As part of the aforementioned transaction, the existing corporate relations between the current shareholders of KoRo were sorted extensively, including the mutually agreed cancellation of contractual put options effective for the past and the future.

Following the completion of the sale and transfer of the shares, the Company will remain involved in KoRo Handels GmbH as an essential strategic minority shareholder and will have a permanent seat on the newly established Advisory Board, chaired by Dr. Georg Kofler.

The Company realizes significant profits on disposal in the mid double-digit million range from the sale of the shares. The parties have contractually agreed on confidentiality and not to disclose further details about the transaction.
