LEG Immobilien AG has successfully placed the capital increase for cash announced this evening. As announced, a total of 4,510,000 no-par value registered shares were issued to institutional investors by way of an accelerated bookbuilding offering, each representing EUR 1.00 of the share capital, under exclusion of shareholders' pre-emption rights. The issue price was EUR 68.00 per share, resulting in gross proceeds of EUR 306.7 million. The net proceeds will be used for the purchase of a portfolio of approximately 13,800 residential units in North Rhine-Westphalia as announced at the beginning of November.
"The success of the capital increase again re-affirms the trust of investors in our strategy, and that they firmly believe in the future potential of the market in North Rhine-Westphalia," said Thomas Hegel, the CEO of LEG Immobilien AG. "LEG stands for organic and external growth, attractive returns and sustainable portfolio management. We will remain fully committed to that approach in the future."
After the registration of the capital increase in the commercial register, anticipated within the next few days, the share capital of LEG Immobilien AG will increase by EUR 4,510,000.00, from EUR 58,259,788.00 to EUR 62,769,788.00. The new shares will be entitled to full dividend payouts as of 1 January 2015. They will be admitted to public trading, with no obligation to publish a prospectus, and included in the current listing in the prime standard segment of the regulated market on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, where post-admission duties will apply. Inclusion in the current listing and the delivery of the new shares to investors is expected on 18 November 2015.
The placement was handled by COMMERZBANK, Morgan Stanley and Société Générale Corporate & Investment Banking as joint global coordinators and joint bookrunners and with Kempen & Co and UniCredit Bank as Co-Bookrunners.
