Nanostart AG Commences U.S. Trading of ADRs

Frankfort, Germany | Posted on October 21st, 2010

With this step, Nanostart ADRs can now be traded on the world's largest capital market, the United States, like any other U.S. security: during U.S. market hours, with pricing and settlement in U.S. dollars, and with normal custody in U.S. brokerage accounts.

ADRs are securities issued by a U.S. depositary bank which certify ownership of the shares of an international company held in safekeeping by the bank. Because they are U.S. domestic securities, ADRs are a convenient alternative to direct ownership of foreign equities. The depositary bank for the ADRs of Nanostart AG, which is a Sponsored Level 1 program, is Bank of New York Mellon. Ten Nanostart ADRs correspond to one Nanostart share.

"The admission of our ADRs for trading on the OTCQX offers many of the benefits of a full U.S. exchange listing, but without the associated high costs and legal burden," explained Marco Beckmann, CEO of Nanostart AG. "Through the ADR program, U.S. investors gain access to foreign equities through the domestic U.S. market system. The U.S. capital market opens a whole new dimension for international companies."

"Companies use OTCQX to expand their access to investors, engage them with quality disclosure of their financials, and provide trading transparency to stimulate liquidity," said R. Cromwell Coulson, President and CEO of Pink OTC Markets Inc., parent of the trading system. "We are pleased to welcome Nanostart to OTCQX."

The ADR program does not constitute an offering of shares by Nanostart AG, nor may these ADRs be offered publicly in Germany. Investors may obtain real-time financial and trading information about Nanostart ADRs under www.otcqx.com as well as www.otcmarkets.com.

Disclaimer:

This notice constitutes neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of offers to purchase or subscribe to securities. There will be no public offering of securities of Nanostart AG in conjunction with the existing listing of its shares in the "Entry Standard" segment of the regulated unofficial market (Freiverkehr) on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. This notice does not constitute a securities prospectus. Neither this notice nor the information contained within is intended for direct or indirect distribution within Canada, Australia or Japan.
