BPV Huegel has advised Immofinanz on a combined share placement and the first-to-market issue of subordinated mandatory convertible notes. Linklaters and Weber & Co. advised bookrunners J.P. Morgan Securities plc, Sole Global Coordinator, and Erste Group Bank AG and Raiffeisen Centrobank AG.
Both placements together comprised approximately 20 percent of the share capital and were carried out in parallel by way of accelerated book-building procedures with institutional investors under exclusion of the shareholders' subscription rights.
The placement included new shares from authorized capital, as well as treasury shares. The shares were priced without discount to the last closing price on the Vienna Stock Exchange. At the same time, Immofinanz issued 4% subordinated mandatory convertible notes with a total nominal value of EUR 120 million, initially convertible into 6,998,228 shares.
