(Vienna, May 7, 2015) In the course of its recently completed capital increase, UBM Realitätenentwicklung Aktiengesellschaft placed in two tranches a total of 1,462,180 new shares: In the course of the pre-placement shares on April 20 and 21, 2015 the subscription and offer price was set at EUR 40.00 per share. Together with the shares that were subscribed during the subscription and offer period, which ended on May 6, 2015, total gross proceeds of the capital increase amounted to EUR 58.5 million.
By means of capital increase UBM has made an important step towards increasing the free float. Following completion of the transaction, the holding of the Ortner-Strauss Syndicate will reduce to around 38.8% of the shares.
The new shares are entitled for dividends as of January 1, 2015 and will be traded separately from the shares issued prior to this capital increase until (and excluding) the ex-dividend date for the 2014 dividend (May 22, 2015) under the ISIN AT0000A1DWA6 in the Standard Market Continuous segment on Vienna Stock Exchange.
Baader Bank and Erste Group acted as Joint Bookrunners and Joint Lead Managers and supported UBM in this transaction.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds to finance the expansion of its business operations on the basis of the current development pipeline, to strengthen its equity base and to optimize its capital structure.
