Heliad Equity Partners GmbH & Co. KGaA resolves cash capital increase with subscription rights of up to 1,818,181 new shares (approx. 16.2 percent of share capital).
Frankfurt am Main, March 2, 2023 – The general partner of Heliad Equity Partners GmbH & Co. KGaA (ISIN: DE000A0L1NN5) (the "Company") resolved today with the consent of the Supervisory Board to carry out a capital increase against cash contribution by partially utilizing the Authorized Capital 2022 and granting shareholders subscription rights (the "Capital Increase").
In the course of the transaction, the share capital of Heliad Equity Partners GmbH & Co. KGaA will be increased by issuing up to 1,818,181 new registered shares, each such share representing a notional value of EUR 1.00, from EUR 11,216,941.00 by up to EUR 1,818,181.00 to up to EUR 13,035,122.00. The up to 1,818,181 new shares will be offered for subscription to the existing limited liability shareholders – subject to the approval of the publication of a securities information sheet by the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin) – by way of indirect subscription rights in accordance with Section 186 (5) of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG) at a ratio of 25 (existing shares) to 4 (new shares) in a public offering in Germany at a subscription price of EUR 4.40 per new share. The subscription offer is expected to be published in the Federal Gazette on March 6, 2023. The subscription period is expected to run from March 7, 2023, to March 20, 2023. The new shares will carry dividend rights from January 1, 2022. The subscription right for fractional amounts will be excluded for up to 23,741 new shares.
The Company's major shareholder has announced that it will exercise its subscription rights in full and support the transaction with up to EUR 3.48 million.
Any new shares not subscribed for as a result of the subscription right will be offered following the subscription offer by way of private placement in Germany and other jurisdictions outside the United States in offshore transactions in accordance with Regulation S of the Securities Act to qualified investors at a price not lower than the subscription price. The final number of new shares will be determined by the general partner with the approval of the Supervisory Board after the expiration of the subscription period and the private placement.
The public offering will be made without a prospectus pursuant to Section 3 no. 2 of the German Securities Prospectus Act (exemption from the obligation to publish a prospectus). Shareholders and investors are therefore advised to read carefully in particular the Company's securities information sheet, which is expected to be available on March 3, 2023, on the Company's website (https://www.heliad.com) under the heading "Investor Relations", before deciding to exercise any subscription rights or to acquire or sell shares.
The new shares carry the same rights as the existing shares and are to be included without a prospectus in the existing listing on the Open Market (Freiverkehr), Scale segment, of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (FSE). Trading is expected to commence on March 28, 2023, with delivery of the new shares scheduled for March 30, 2023.
The proceeds of the transaction will be used to further finance the investment activities.
