Pinsent Masons has advised Hauck & Aufhäuser on the listing of Media and Games Invest plc. on the Scale Segment of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.

Media and Games Invest plc. (MGI), a profitable and fast growing company in the digital media and games sectors, has successfully started trading on the Scale segment of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.  The group of companies includes gamigo AG, a leading online games publisher and the Verve Group, a leading online advertising platform. In the past six years, MGI has made more than 30 acquisitions.

Scale is the Deutsche Börse‘s segment for small and midsized companies offering access to investors and efficient equity financing. It is a formally registered SME Growth Market according to EU standards. The segment of the Open Market servers as an alternative to the EU-regulated segments General Standard and Prime Standard.

MGI shares were previously listed on the Basic Board. Moving up to the Scale segment opens MGI up to a wider group of investors and allows them to take account of active investor communication. Due to the good liquidity of the share, MGI expects to be included in the Scale 30 index of Deutsche Börse in the future.

Hauck & Aufhäuser Privatbankiers AG acted as the listing agent and capital market partner of Deutsche Börse AG who worked together on the Scale-segment listing of Media and Games Invest plc.

A Capital Markets Team lead by Dr Alexander Thomas advised on all legal aspects of the listing. The team comprised Dr Alexander Thomas and Dušan Stojković. Most recently, Pinsent Masons advised on the IPO of Exasol AG in the scale segment and thus the first ever IPO in Germany in 2020.
