paragon holds off on placing Corporate Bond

- Difficult market environment prompts general buying restraint

- Financing of paragon investment activities guaranteed

Delbrück, Germany, October 24, 2018 - Considering the currently very difficult and volatile market environment, the management of paragon GmbH & Co. KGaA has decided to hold off on placing a new corporate bond for now and to cancel the public offer that was initiated on October 23, 2018. Although paragon's positive business development was met with much interest at the most recent roadshow, the general buying restraint of investors on the capital market dominates right now.

The financing of paragon's investment activities is anyway guaranteed by its available liquidity and house banks.
