Lotto24 AG nominated for European Small and Mid-Cap Awards

(Hamburg, 18 September 2013) Lotto24 AG has been shortlisted as one of the candidates for the European Small and Mid-Cap Awards. The awards are organized by the European Commission, in co-operation with leading European stock exchanges as well as European Issuers, the association of European public companies. As a new market entrant in 2012, Lotto24 had been entered into the contest by Deutsche Börse in the category 'Rising Star'. The Company has now been selected as one of four final candidates in this category of the European competition.

The contest is open to public companies from the 28 EU member states, as well as Norway, Switzerland and Turkey, with winners selected in four different categories. The category 'Rising Star' is for companies with a market capitalization of under EUR 50 million as of 31 December 2012 that have exceptional growth potential in terms of market share, revenue and headcount, and that have potential for long-term share price growth. Other criteria relate to communication policy, and how the company is perceived by its competitors, analysts and other companies.

The objective of the awards is to promote the capital markets as a source of growth finance, to showcase best practices and success stories of small- and mid-cap companies, to highlight the diversity on the European capital markets, and to promote new listings. The jury for the awards is made up of representatives from the financial community, journalism and academia. Winners will be announced at the awards ceremony in Brussels on 19 November 2013.
