FinGroup AG: Successful entry into the blockchain and cryptocurrencies business – forecast reviewed upwards
FinGroup AG (ISIN DE000A2DAMG0), a Munich-based Fintech company, is pleased to announce its successful entry into the blockchain and cryptographic currencies business. In January 2018, clients were acquired for the support of two Initial Coin Offerings (ICO) from a Cypriot corporate group. Following the successful placement of the tokens to be generated, up to ten additional ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) are to be implemented in the current calendar year, based on a declaration of intent between Capital Lounge GmbH, a wholly-owned subsidiary of FinGroup AG, and a Greek incubator for the formation of a joint venture in the form of a corporation with its registered office in Germany, each of which will be 50 percent owned.
In addition to this pleasing development, the current financial year has also started well above expectations in traditional IPO business. In January 2018, two mandates were also won for IPOs. Capital Lounge GmbH was founded with the implementation of the IPO of World Excellent Products S. A. (www.wep-sa.com), a Thessaloniki-based distributor of high quality olive oil and balsamic vinegar, in the EN. A. segment of the Athens Stock Exchange. In addition, a further mandate from a Swiss blockchain and cryptocurrencies company for the introduction of shares into trading on the Third Market of the Vienna Stock Exchange was secured.
All in all, the incoming orders for the month of January amount to more than EUR 300,000. And this is why the Executive Board of FinGroup AG can significantly review the sales and earnings forecast published in the information memorandum of November 18, 2017 upwards. A detailed sales and earnings forecast will be announced at the Annual General Meeting, which is expected to be held in May 2018.
As a further milestone in the Group's strategic direction, FinGroup AG was able to increase its stake in friends & equity GmbH from 60 percent to 90 percent. In the current year, investments in the low seven-digit range are to be contributed to the investment company. After the contributions have been absorbed, the legal form of the company is to be changed from a limited liability company (GmbH) to a public limited company (AG). In this context, the implementation of a private placement against cash contributions and the inclusion of trading in a regulated segment in Europe is planned.

Fake Medicines Continue to Threaten Consumers – EU Member States have an Obligation to Act21.2.2018 11:12 | Tiedote
According to The Alliance for Safe Online Pharmacy in the EU (ASOP EU), the illegal manufacturing and distribution of fake medicines is an enormous and growing public health risk with an untold cost to lives. "Vast profits are made by organized criminal gangs who often use the proceeds to support other criminal activities. The Internet provides the ideal channel to buy illegally distributed fake medicines. Price, convenience and secrecy have driven consumer demand, creating the perfect environment for over 35,000 illegally operating websites." Under article 85d of the Falsified Medicines Directive, each EU Member State is obliged to raise awareness about the risks of buying medicines online. To better understand how countries are meeting these obligations to educate and protect consumers, the European Union’s Alliance for Safe Online Pharmacy (ASOP EU) and the European Alliance for Access to Safe Medicines (EAASM), has convened a series of discussions with many Member States.
