PRESS RELEASE

regulation of slow cortical potentials, is acknowledged as a leader in this highly specialized field. The
firm’s know-how and expertise in the Brain-Computer-Interface technology has been invaluable to many

alternative therapy of migrane, epilepsy, tinnitus and other neuro-psychiatric diseases. Neurofeedback
therapy has already been successfully used in treatments of children and adolescents diagnosed with
Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD or ADD), and offers an alternative method to the
conventional pharmacological treatment methods with Ritalin.
A few months ago, neuroConn GmbH joined forces with Magstim Company Ltd, a Wales based forefront
global leader engaged in the research, development, manufacture and marketing of medical and research
devices within the neurological and surgical fields. The essence of this strategic partnership is expected
to be increased business value and global growth for neuroConn GmbH.

& Co. Fonds 2 KG as the additional investor. Manuel Reitmeier, CFO and one of the Managing Directors
at neuroConn GmbH, cites the engagement of mic AG in this strategic move as an example of the overall
success of the mic AG business concept. “ As an early-stage investor, we not only support the young
firms with financial means, but are actively engaged in looking for strategic partners and investors that
can expedite the growth opportunities of these firms. The business engagements with both, V+ GmbH &
Co. Fonds 2 KG and Magstim Company Ltd, will serve to strengthen the growth developments and
business potential of neuroConn GmbH”.
