Hamburg-based NAGA Group (XETRA: N4G), which operates a popular social trading platform, announced on Friday that it has completed a fresh share placement, thus securing a total of €34 million in growth capital.
The proceeds will be utilized by the company in financing global growth and enhanced marketing measures.
NAGA has already received a guarantee of €30 million in capital over the next three years from US Fund Yorkville Advisors in a deal closed earlier this year and has withdrawn an initial €8 million. In addition, the company raised another €22.7 million from several investors, including Christian Angermayer and Igor Lychagov, the Founder of Exness.
The latest placement consisted of 4,223,250 shares at a subscription price of €8 per share. It was placed with European financial investors, along with qualified investors in Germany and other selected jurisdictions excluding the United States.

Demand Is Rising
NAGA is known for its flagship copy and social trading platform. But, the company is now expanding its services in other areas: it has launched a payment platform, global stock trading services and a non-fungible token (NFT) platform only in recent months.
Furthermore, the demand for NAGA’s services is soaring as the company has been posting growth in its revenue continuously for several quarters. It generated a record $21 million in revenue in Q3 of 2021, witnessing monthly and yearly jumps of 38 percent and 157 percent, respectively.
Meanwhile, the latest capital raise that was made at a premium price at the close on Thursday of the publicly listed NAGA shares drove up demand for the company shares. As of press time, NAGA share prices have jumped by more than 4 percent since the opening of the market on Friday.
