The Board of Directors of DDM Holding AG (“DDM” or the “Company”) has, based on the authorization granted by DDM’s Annual General Meeting held on 27 May 2015 in its Art. 3a of the articles of the association, resolved to carry out an authorized share issue of a maximum of 2,000,000 registered shares at a subscription price of SEK 33.50 per share (the “Issue”). The subscription price in the Issue has been set at the market closing price on 19 May 2016. According to Article 3a para 2 of the articles of association the pre-emptive rights have been withdrawn. The reason for this is to raise capital to be used exclusively for imminent investments.
Through the Issue DDM will receive gross proceeds amounting to up to SEK 65 million.
“The large portfolios acquired in Hungary during 2015 strengthened DDM’s position as a leading investor and manager of distressed assets in Eastern Europe. The new equity raise will further strengthen the Company’s ability to capture the large growth opportunities that we currently see in the market,” said Kent Hansson, Chairman of the Board of Directors of DDM.
Carnegie Investment Bank has acted as financial advisor to DDM in connection with the Issue.
