Catella financial advisor to MaxFast Properties
Catella has acted as advisor to MaxFast Properties AB (publ), both in connection with a capital raising of approximately SEK 210 million and for listing of the company's shares on First North at Nasdaq Stockholm.
“We are very pleased to once again present a growth-oriented and cash-flow driven property company to the market. Thanks to Catella’s strong position in both the capital and real estate markets, we have been able to conduct capital raising and property advisory,” says Robert Fonovich, head of Catella’s Swedish Corporate Finance operations.
The real estate portfolio of MaxFast Properties consists mainly of properties for consumer discretionary retailing in strong local positions in small and medium-sized municipalities. The property value amounts to approximately SEK 700 million. The proceeds of the share issue are being used to both change the capital structure and for new acquisitions, some of which are already agreed. The aim is to achieve a property value of one billion kronor within a year, made possible by the share issue. The next goal is to achieve two billion within three years.
“Catella has assisted MaxFast throughout the process leading to the company’s listing on First North. The project has included everything from structuring, capital raising and IR advice to assistance with the listing process, which demonstrates the breadth of our expertise,” says Britt-Marie Nyman, who is responsible for Capital Markets within Catella’s Corporate Finance operations.
Nasdaq Stockholm has approved MaxFast Properties for listing on First North. The first trading day is today 29 June 2016. Catella’s Corporate Finance unit has acted as financial advisor and Catella Bank Filial as bookrunner.
