PRESS RELEASE

BRAIN share successfully starts trading

Zwingenberg, February 9, 2016: B.R.A.I.N. Biotechnology Research and Information Network AG ("BRAIN AG"; ISIN
DE0005203947 / WKN 520394) had a successful stock market debut today. The first share price was at 9.15 Euros, and
therefore above the issue price of 9 Euro. BRAIN AG is now listed - as the first German company from the field of
bioeconomy - in the Prime Standard segment of the Frankfurt stock exchange.

A total of 32.5 million Euros (including over-allotments) were placed in the context of the offering, from which the
Company receives gross proceeds of 31.5 million. BRAIN AG intends to use these proceeds, after deduction of the IPO
expenses, primarily to fund the development of new products and to enhance the marketing of its own products, such as
enzymes, performance microorganisms and bioactive compounds.

"Many of our initial share subscribers - among them institutional and private investors from Germany and Europe - have
recognized the growth potential offered by a bio-based economy. We do not want to disappoint the trust placed in us and
will continue our industrialisation strategy at full throttle. Our pipeline of bio-based solutions, which will make
industrial processes more sustainable, efficient, natural and healthier, is strong thanks to a current total of 15
programmes. We will consistently continue to develop them with the proceeds from the IPO," says Dr Jürgen Eck, CEO of
BRAIN AG.

BRAIN AG is one of Europe's leading technology companies in the field of industrial or "white" biotechnology, the core
discipline of the bioeconomy. A particular growth potential is seen in large parts of the chemical industry, where
experts foresee a rising share of biotechnology products and procedures. Here, BRAIN AG focuses on the specialty
chemicals and the consumer chemicals divisions, with an emphasis on nutrition, cosmetics and wound care.

Based on these business activities, BRAIN was classified by Deutsche Börse as belonging to the Speciality Chemicals
sector of the Prime Standard segment. This sector of the German capital market is characterised by a remarkable
concentration of expertise, something BRAIN may benefit from as a publicly listed company.

"We are pleased to welcome BRAIN to the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. BRAIN is the first company form the field of
bioeconomy to enrich our stock exchange list," says Hauke Stars, Member of the Executive Board at Deutsche Boerse AG.

The BRAIN transaction was the first IPO in Germany this year. The capital increase of 3.5 million shares was fully
placed. Approximately 19 per cent of the placed shares were allocated to retail investors. The remaining shares were
placed with top-class institutional investors from Germany and different European countries

"With the floatation of BRAIN we have implemented Germany's first IPO of the year. Acting as Sole Global Coordinator and
Bookrunner, we reached out to a large circle of European investors even beyond our Franco-German domestic markets.
Thanks to our highly experienced and committed sales team, we have been able to convey the BRAIN equity story and the
bio-based economy as a whole to the investment community," says René Parmentier, CEO of ODDO SEYDLER BANK AG, which
managed the IPO transaction. "Despite a highly volatile capital market environment, the final issue price was fixed
within the initial bookbuilding range. We are very happy about this successful transaction, which may possibly help
break the ice for further IPO transactions," adds Parmentier.

ODDO SEYDLER Bank AG acted as Sole Global Coordinator and Bookrunner in the BRAIN IPO transaction. Blaettchen Financial
Advisory GmbH supported the Company as IPO consultant, the law firm Hoffmann Liebs Fritsch & Partner acted as issuer's
counsel, and Instinctif Partners supported in the areas of investor relations & financial communication.
