4SC AG issues first tranche of convertible notes with a nominal amount of
EUR 500,000 to Yorkville

Planegg-Martinsried, 4 March 2014 - 4SC AG (Frankfurt, Prime Standard: VSC)
today announced that it successfully completed the issuance of convertible
notes with a nominal amount of EUR 500,000.00. These convertible notes
constitute the first tranche of a total issuance of up to EUR 15 million
guaranteed by an agreement between YA Global Master SPV Ltd. ("Yorkville")
and the Company. Following the successful conversion of previously issued
tranches, the Company's Management will decide independently on a
case-by-case basis whether additional tranches will be issued.

Excluding the pre-emptive rights of existing shareholders, the notes will
be issued exclusively to Yorkville at a subscription price corresponding to
95% of the nominal amount. The notes carry no interest, have a term of nine
month and may be converted into shares of 4SC by the holder of the notes at
any time. The conversion price equals the volume weighted average trading
price of 4SC shares during a five-day period prior to the time of
conversion, less a 5% discount, but it cannot be lower than EUR 1.13.

Further details regarding the terms and conditions in connection with the
issuance of convertible notes according to the agreement with Yorkville
were announced in the ad hoc release dated 12 February 2014.
