PTA-News: Biofrontera AG: Biofrontera strategically on course for growth; Realignment of the Supervisory Board

Business news for the stock market

Leverkusen, Germany (pta018/14.05.2024/10:30) - After two challenging years, Biofrontera AG has achieved restructuring and stabilization. By improving relations with Biofrontera Inc. and largely settling all legal disputes, the company is now clearly focused on a future-oriented growth strategy.

The ongoing capital reduction and the associated capital increase also represent an important milestone in this new phase of the company's alignment. Following the successful completion of both measures, Biofrontera will have a more solid financial basis.

With effect from May 10, 2024, Dr. Helge Lubenow took over as Chairwoman of the Supervisory Board of Biofrontera AG following the resignation of Mr. Zours.

Executive Board and Supervisory Board of Biofrontera intends to propose a reduction in the size of the Supervisory Board from six to four members at the next Annual General Meeting in August 2024, which is more appropriate to the current size and objectives of the company. To make this possible, Prof. Dr. Karin Lergenmüller and the deputy chairman, Dr. Jörgen Tielmann, have resigned their mandates with effect from the end of the next Annual General Meeting. In cooperation with the Deutsche Balaton Group, the company will find a suitable candidate to fill the fourth seat on the Supervisory Board, whom we will propose for election at the next Annual General Meeting.

"This restructuring of the Supervisory Board is aligned with the new stage of Biofrontera, where, after several years of disputes, we are now entering into a stable pathway with the expansion and profitability of the company as our main goals. We would like to thank the departing supervisory board members, Dr. Tielmann and Prof. Dr. Lergenmüller. Their commitment in challenging times has been invaluable, and we sincerely appreciate their support. Special thanks are due to our former Chairman of the Supervisory Board, Mr. Zours. We regret his resignation, as he was instrumental in driving forward the restructuring and successful realignment of the company over the past two years. For his commitment and his role as a reliable investor, he deserves the highest recognition and great thanks," commented Mrs. de la Huerta, CFO of Biofrontera, on the intended realignment of the Supervisory Board.

"I am very excited about the new stage of Biofrontera AG. Once the company is stabilized and has sustainable positive EBITDA, the expansion of its portfolio and its presence in more territories is our next step. I am glad of heading this process. I would like to thank Mr. Zours, Prof. Dr. Lergenmüller, and Dr Tielmann for their support in very difficult times. Without their contribution, this new and promising future wouldn't be possible", said Dr. Lubenow, the new chairwoman of the Supervisory Board.
