ACTAQUA AG continues to pursue alternative financing options and suspends issuance of the bond 2022/2027
Mannheim, June 3, 2022. ACTAQUA AG, a company that specializes in the digital transformation of the real estate industry, has announced that it is not pursuing the issuance of the 2022/2027 bond for the time being in the current very challenging market environment for SME bonds and is pursuing alternative and more promising financing options instead. The company reserves the right to resume the issuance plans at a later date under more favorable market conditions.
Even in the currently difficult market environment for mid-cap bonds, the Management Board has received positive feedback on ACTAQUA AG’s business model from many investors during the current issuance process. Nevertheless, compared to other refinancing options in particular, the Management Board currently considers the conditions for a full placement of the bond in the planned issuance period to be suboptimal. Therefore, the company, also with the involvement of interested investors from the previous issuance process, will focus on alternative financing options, which have been pursued in parallel and continuously by the company in the past months in view of its dynamic growth plans.
“With our digitalization platform PAUL, we have a unique, future-proof and sustainable product that makes environmental and climate protection, as well as resource efficiency in the building sector, a reality. We can thus make a very decisive contribution to a green real estate industry. The potential market for PAUL is correspondingly huge and demand is rising steadily. Our business figures, momentum and positive business outlook speak for themselves,” explained Sascha Müller, co-founder of ACTAQUA.
With its business model, ACTAQUA has been in the black since the company was founded and has experienced a growing and profitable business development. Most recently, total operating performance in 2021 increased by 152% to EUR 12.3 million compared to the previous year (2020: EUR 4.8 million). Earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) in 2021 amounted to EUR 5.8 million (2020: EUR 1.6 million), which equates to an EBIT margin of 47.2% (2020: 33.3%). As of mid-March 2022, a total order backlog of around EUR 4 million was already contractually fixed. ACTAQUA expects total order intake of around EUR 19 million to EUR 21 million in 2022.
