FinLab backs Mike Novogratz's Galaxy Digital Holdings in PRE-IPO round

Frankfurt/M., February 9, 2018 - FinLab AG (ISIN: DE0001218063; Ticker: A7A.GR) has participated in a pre-IPO round of Galaxy Digital Holdings Ltd., a company founded by legendary hedge fund manager Mike Novogratz. FinLab is part of a consortium that invests USD 5.5 million, of which approximately USD 2 million come from FinLab.

Former hedge fund manager Mike Novogratz has successfully raised USD 250 million in this private placement to finance the launch of Galaxy Digital, a cryptocurrency merchant bank which shall be publicly-listed in Canada soon.

Novogratz, who after his departure from Fortress in 2013, where he had been CIO, had been an early backer of Bitcoin, Ether and many other successful crypto currencies and crypto companies, will move his entire existing cryptocurrency and blockchain portfolio into Galaxy Digital.

Galaxy Digital's cryptocurrency merchant bank will have a threefold business model. It will open a cryptocurrency trading desk and initially seek to capitalize on opportunities for cross-exchange arbitrage. It will also invest in blockchain startups and initial coin offerings (ICOs). Finally, it will provide advisory and asset management services to wealthy clients.

As FinLab shares the same investment focus with Galaxy Digital, the investment into Galaxy Digital shall also underpin a strategic partnership focused on sharing deal flow and doing co-investments.
