Deutsche Industrie REIT-AG to issue convertible bonds
Rostock, 5 June 2019 - The management board of Deutsche Industrie REIT-AG, Potsdam, ("Deutsche Industrie" or the "Company") resolved today, with the approval of the supervisory board of the Company, to launch the offering of unsecured and unsubordinated convertible bonds in the nominal amount of up to EUR 41.6 million with a term of 7 years (the "Bonds").
The Bonds will have a denomination of EUR 100,000.00 per Bond and will be convertible into up to 2,248,648 newly issued or existing Deutsche Industrie bearer shares with no-par value or may be repaid in cash. The Company is using an authorization from its annual general meeting of 22 March 2019 for the issuance of the Bonds, which provides for an exclusion of the shareholders' subscription rights (Bezugsrechte).
The Bonds will be issued at an issue price of at least 95% and will be redeemed at 100% of their principal amount. The initial conversion price shall be EUR 18.50, resulting in a conversion premium of 28.47% calculated on Deutsche Industrie's closing share price as of 4 June 2019. The coupon will amount to 2.000% p.a. payable quarterly in arrears.
The final terms of the Bonds are expected to be announced later today through a press release and settlement is expected to take place on or around 11 June 2019. The Company intends to apply for inclusion of the Bonds to trading on the Open Market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (Frankfurter Wertpapierbörse) subsequent to the settlement.
The Company will have the option to redeem the Bonds at their principal amount (plus accrued but unpaid interest) at any time if 20% or less of the aggregate principal amount of the Bonds remains outstanding. The investors will have the option to terminate the Bonds after 4 years and request repayment at 105 % of their principal amount (plus accrued but unpaid interest)
The Bonds will be placed in an accelerated bookbuilding only to institutional investors outside the United States in reliance on Regulation S under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, as well as outside of Australia, Canada, Japan and any other jurisdiction in which offers or sales of the Bonds would be prohibited by applicable law.
The net proceeds raised from the issue of the Bonds will be used for general corporate purposes including the refinancing of existing indebtedness of the Company.
