Deutsche Konsum REIT-AG resolves on capital increase from authorized capital
Broderstorf, 14 May 2020 - The management board of Deutsche Konsum REIT-AG (WKN A14KRD / ISIN DE000A14KRD3) (the "Company") today resolved, with the approval of the supervisory board of the Company, to increase the share capital of the Company from currently EUR 31,959,944.00 by up to EUR 3,195,994.00 to up to EUR 35,155,938.00 by issuing up to 3,195,994 new ordinary bearer shares with no par value, each such share with a notional value of EUR 1.00 of the Company's share capital (the "New Shares"), against cash contributions, making partial use of the existing authorized capital pursuant to Section 4 (3) of the Company's articles of association (the "Capital Increase"). The statutory subscription right of the Company's shareholders was excluded pursuant to Sections 203 (1), 186 (3) sentence 4 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG). The New Shares carry full dividend rights for the fiscal year 2019/2020 beginning on 1 October 2019.
The net issue proceeds from the Capital Increase shall be used by the Company to strengthen its equity base and to finance further acquisitions and acquisition opportunities in order to continue the successful growth course in the future. In this context, the Company is currently negotiating the acquisition of new properties with a total value slightly above EUR 100 million at approximately an 11x multiple of (net) rent.
Babelsberger Beteiligungs GmbH, a subsidiary of Obotritia Capital KGaA, has committed to subscribe for around one third of the New Shares. The remaining New Shares shall be offered for purchase in a private placement by way of an accelerated bookbuilding process exclusively to institutional investors. The private placement will commence immediately after the publication of this announcement and end tomorrow before start of trading at the latest, or at short notice at any time before.
The Company has agreed to a six-month lock-up period with market-customary exceptions.
The placement price of the New Shares will be determined in the accelerated bookbuilding process and is expected to be published no later than tomorrow.
The New Shares shall be admitted to trading without prospectus on the regulated market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange with simultaneous admission to the sub-segment thereof with additional post-admission obligations (Prime Standard) as well as on the regulated market of the Berlin Stock Exchange immediately after the Capital Increase has been registered with the commercial register which is expected to take place on 19 May 2020. The admission is expected to occur on 20 May 2020. The first day of trading is expected to be 21 May 2020.
Jefferies and ODDO BHF will act as joint global coordinators and joint bookrunners for the transaction.
