Ypsomed examines investment options

(PresseBox) (Burgdorf, ) At the general meeting of 27 June 2012 Ypsomed shareholders approved the growth strategy: the motion to implement an approved increase in share capital which can be used, among other things, to finance the extension and build-up of international distribution channels and production facilities, was passed by a large majority. Ypsomed is meanwhile in the process of examining various investment options. These also include existing co-operation partners. No talks have been held with potential takeover targets as yet.

The increase in share capital by Ypsomed will only be implemented if specific investment projects are to be carried out, as administrative board chairman and CEO Dr. h. c. Willy Michel explained at the general meeting. The time limit for implementation extends until July 2014.
