Deutsche Industrie REIT-AG resolves on capital increase from authorized capital
Rostock, 16 June 2020 - Today, the management board of Deutsche Industrie REIT-AG (ISIN DE000A2G9LL1 / WKN A2G9LL) ("Company"), with the approval of the supervisory board of the Company, resolved to increase the share capital of the Company from currently EUR 29,163,187.00 by up to EUR 2,916,318.00 to up to EUR 32,079,505.00 by issuing up to 2,916,318 new ordinary bearer shares with no par value, each such share with a notional value of EUR 1.00 in the Company's share capital and with full dividend rights as from 1 October 2019 ("New Shares"), against cash contributions making partial use of the existing authorized capital 2020/I ("Capital Increase"). The statutory subscription right of the Company's shareholders was excluded.
The expected net proceeds from the Capital Increase shall be used to strengthen the Company's equity base and to finance further acquisitions and acquisition opportunities in order to continue the successful growth course in the future.
Babelsberger Beteiligungs GmbH, a subsidiary of Obotritia Capital KGaA, was granted the right to directly subscribe for up to 286,000 New Shares as part of the capital increase. The remaining up to 2,630,318 New Shares will be offered exclusively in a private placement by way of an accelerated bookbuilding to qualified investors in the European Economic Area and certain other jurisdictions, excluding the United States of America pursuant to Regulation S of the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended ("Securities Act"), and outside Canada, Australia and Japan. The private placement will commence immediately after the publication of this announcement and is expected to end tomorrow prior to the start of trading in Germany, or, as the case may be, at short notice at any time before. The placement price of the New Shares will be determined in the accelerated bookbuilding process and is expected to be published directly after the private placement.
Following the private placement, the Company will be subject to a three-months lock-up, i.e. an obligation not to, inter alia, issue further shares or financial instruments convertible into shares or to conduct a further capital increase, subject to customary market conditions and exemptions.
The Company expects the implementation of the Capital Increase to be registered with the Commercial Register of the Local Court of Rostock on 18 June 2020. Admission of the New Shares for trading in 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 in the regulated market of the Berlin Stock Exchange is expected to take place without prospectus on 18 June 2020. The New Shares are expected to be included in the existing listings of the Company's shares on 19 June 2020.
Baader Bank and COMMERZBANK will act as joint global coordinators and joint bookrunners for the transaction.
