We have a clear roadmap. In the first quarter of 2018, the parent company Aimondo AG is launched in Switzerland. The formal integration of the German GmbH took place towards the back end of 2018.
The company management is in the hands of three people who master technology, financial management and internationalization through knowledge and experience. The Articles of Association provide for the worldwide management of the Aimondo companies. They also provide for the strengthening of financial power while maintaining strategic control – supported by a strong advisory council. The Advisory Board will consist of a maximum of seven persons who have entrepreneurial experience, international contacts and scientific project accompaniment qualifications.
Some of the valuable ordinary shares are issued to Family & Friends. Towards the end of the fourth quarter or a little later, i.e. in 2019, share and participation certificate value publications (in accordance with the values redeemed within the framework of “Family & Friends) should create some pre-conditions for a qualified bookbuilding – together with a somewhat broader, well-controlled diversification to friends, their families, employees and other acquaintances of a number of registered ordinary shares – supplemented by new non-voting bearer preference shares in combination with a capital increase. This means that some formalities have been created for later – for example, to meet requirements for an entry into a regulated public financial market.
In the third quarter of 2018, the structures were implemented and stabilized to carry the Aimondo online concept out into the world. Some of the strategically important, internationally active customers from various industries are the first to receive the Aimondo technology. At the same time, the freemium and standard concept will be implemented, enabling small companies around the world to unleash the full power of free or low-cost growth through the best business intelligence and dynamic pricing. These actions are accompanied by highly targeted multilingual online advertising campaigns. Based on these experiences and references in the blue-chip business as well as in the broad spectrum, the cooperation of medium and large online companies in many countries can be derived in such a way that Aimondo’s own companies or sales partners in these target countries can be activated on a secure financial basis.
Starting in the fourth quarter of 2018 and at the beginning of 2019, additional prerequisites were created and prepared for a later Public Offering. This also includes collective custody, which makes it possible to transfer participation certificates, which were previously paper-based securities, into securities accounts.
In addition, the performance marketing of the operating business was significantly expanded. At the same time, the prerequisites for the previously agreed steps towards listing in a standard segment of a regulated capital market at a later stage are being prepared, talks with one of the major stock exchanges are being intensified and initial negotiations with a so-called “capital market coach” are being initiated.
