Media Release 
Social Chain AG Annual General Meeting sets course for upgrade to Prime Standard 
  . Approved authorized capital also facilitates listing on a foreign stock exchange. 
  . Strong operating performance in the core business segment of Social Commerce: Revenue increase of around 80 percent 
    in the first half of 2021 
  . Executive Board confirms annual targets: USD 420m in revenue and USD 18m EBITDA 
  . Wanja S. Oberhof: "Social Chain AG is ready for its next chapter: The planned move to the Prime Standard is a 
    logical step given the dynamic segment development." 
Berlin, 30 July 2021. Today, the Annual General Meeting of Social Chain AG (WKN: A1YC99, ISIN DE000A1YC996) set the 
course for the company's upgrade to the Prime Standard of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. The shareholders approved by a 
large majority the issuance of authorized capital of up to 50 percent of the current share capital. This corresponds to 
(together with an already existing authorized capital) of an issue of up to 5.74 million shares. The new authorized 
capital was created in connection with the listing of Social Chain AG on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange's Prime Standard, 
which is planned for this year. The resolution on the creation of the authorized capital also explicitly provides for a 
possible listing of Social Chain AG on a foreign stock exchange. This will give Social Chain AG the opportunity to 
pursue a listing on Nasdaq in a further step. 
Wanja S. Oberhof, CEO of Social Chain AG: "We are planning to move to the Prime Standard of the Frankfurt Stock 
Exchange before the end of the year. This will also make Social Chain shares attractive to investors who generally only 
invest in stocks in the premium segment of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. In combination with possible capital 
increases, we expect Social Chain shares to become even more attractive and liquid. The planned change to the Prime 
Standard is also a logical next step in view of the Social Chain AG's successful business development." 
Oberhof reported a strong operational performance at the annual general meeting, which was held virtually due to 
Corona. In the core business of Social Commerce, revenue grew by around 80 percent in the first six months of 2021 
compared to the first half of 2020. The Social Commerce verticals "Food" and "Home & Living" performed particularly 
well. Agency business in the area of social media also almost doubled. Only in the events segment was there a decrease 
in revenue as a result of Corona. Overall, there is a clear revenue shift towards Social Commerce, the core business of 
Social Chain AG. Social Chain AG will publish the figures for the first half of 2021 on 26 August 2021. 
Based on the operational business performance in the first six months, Oberhof confirmed Social Chain AG's revenue 
target for the 2021 financial year, which had recently been raised to USD 420 million. EBITDA is still expected at USD 
18 million. 
At the time of the vote, 59 percent of the company's registered share capital was represented. In addition to the 
increased authorized capital and the discharge of the Supervisory Board and the Executive Board, the shareholders 
appointed RSM GmbH as auditors for the 2021 financial year. The voting results can be viewed in detail at 
www.socialchain.com (Investor Relations section).
