WestLB AG is acting as the Sole Lead Manager and Sole Bookrunner for this IPO. M.M.Warburg & CO KGaA is the Co-Lead Manager. 

InVision will be offering up to 1,077,000 shares. If the greenshoe option is fully exercised, the total placement proceeds will thus total up to between Euro 34.5 and Euro 40.9 million. Thereof, InVision will receive up to Euro 27.2 million in proceeds from a capital increase. Should all shares be allotted during the IPO there will be a free float of 48 percent. 

Of the overall number of the offered shares, i.e. 1,077,000, up to 714,996 shares derive from a capital increase against cash capital contributions and up to 221,530 shares result from a secondary placement. Up to 140,474 shares of the current shareholders will be made available in connection with a possible over-allotment (greenshoe option). Sole selling shareholder is InVision Holding GmbH, a company jointly owned by the three founders of InVision Software AG, currently holding 24 percent of the shares in InVision. Even if the greenshoe option should be fully exercised, the founders will still hold 51 percent of the shares of InVision. 

It is InVision’s core business to develop and market software solutions that support companies in optimising the deployment of their staff (Workforce Management). InVision develops since 1995 software based solutions for highly complex optimization tasks. InVision considers this to be an essential part of its competitive edge. An optimised staff scheduling can help to reduce costs due to the fact that an optimum number of employees is on duty at all times. InVision´s customers usually achieve a return on investment within 6 to 12 months. In addition, optimised staff planning also ensures satisfied customers who, for example, no longer have to spend time queuing at checkouts. Employee’s motivation can be improved by taking their scheduling requests into account.
