Berlin, 18 November 2015 - In the context of a cash capital increase, TLG IMMOBILIEN AG has placed 6,130,000 new shares with institutional investors at an issue price of EUR 16.60 per share in an accelerated bookbuilding process. The gross issue proceeds thus amount to approx. EUR 101.8m.
The Company will receive net issue proceeds of approx. EUR 100.7m after deduction of underwriters' commissions. TLG IMMOBILIEN AG intends to use these proceeds to acquire further suitable properties to enable it to continue to implement its successful growth strategy.
As a result of the capital increase, the Company's share capital increases by approx. 10% from EUR 61,302,326.00 to EUR 67,432,326.00. It is expected that the new shares will be admitted to trading without a prospectus on November 23, 2015 and will be included in the existing quotation on the sub-segment of the regulated market with additional post-admission obligations (Prime Standard) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. The new shares will carry full dividend rights from January 1, 2015. Settlement/closing of the transaction is expected to take place on November 24, 2015.
'The successful placement of the shares and the high level of interest in them on the part of the shareholders demonstrate the capital market's recognition and acknowledgement of the continuity of TLG IMMOBILIEN's business model', said Peter Finkbeiner, member of TLG IMMOBILIEN AG's Management Board. 'The additional equity will enable us to continue to push forward with our successful growth strategy as we have done in the past twelve months. The issue proceeds generated will allow us to invest up to an additional EUR 200m in new acquisitions and to leverage our excellent market position. We will therefore be able to meet our preliminary target portfolio size of EUR 2bn.' The Company has invested approx. EUR 280m to acquire new properties since the Company's initial public offering in October 2014.
Commerzbank Aktiengesellschaft and UBS Limited acted as Joint Global Coordinators and Joint Bookrunners for the placement. VICTORIAPARTNERS acted as independent transaction advisor to TLG IMMOBILIEN AG.
