Mutares: Portfolio company Nordec Group Corporation is planning an IPO on the Finnish Nasdaq First North Growth Market

- Placement of new and existing shares of Nordec Group Corporation

- Current sole shareholder Donges SteelTec GmbH wants to place more than 50% of its existing shares of Nordec Group Corporation

- Nordec Group Corporation aims to raise gross proceeds of approximately EUR 7 million through the placement of new shares

- Commitment from Cornerstone investors to acquire shares with a total volume of not less than EUR 19.5 million at the final subscription price


Munich, 30 May 2022 – Nordec Group Corporation ("Nordec" or the "Company"), a portfolio company of Mutares SE & Co KGaA (ISIN: DE000A2NB650) ("Mutares"), is planning an initial public offering ("Offering") and a listing of its shares on the Nasdaq First North Growth Market Finland ("IPO"), a multilateral marketplace operated by Nasdaq Helsinki Ltd. Nordec is one of the leading providers of steel frame structures and envelope solutions for construction projects in the Nordic countries with a strong position also in the Central and Eastern European countries (CEE). The Company is expected to generate revenues of EUR 250–280 million and Adjusted EBITDA to reach between EUR 12–15 million in 2022.

The Offering is expected to consist of both a new share issue by the Company and a share sale by the shareholder of the Company, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Mutares, Donges SteelTec GmbH ("Donges"). The current shareholding of the present sole shareholder Donges is expected to decrease to below 50% as a result of the IPO.

Nordec aims to raise gross proceeds of approximately EUR 7 million by offering new shares for subscription. The Company expects to use the net proceeds from the Share Issue to facilitate the implementation of Nordec's strategic growth objectives and to increase the efficiency of Nordec's operations and production.

Certain cornerstone investors have each separately, subject to certain terms and conditions, undertaken to participate in the contemplated Offering and to subscribe for shares at the final subscription price for a total of not less than EUR 19.5 million.

In connection with the contemplated Offering, Nordec will prepare a prospectus, which will contain the terms and conditions of the Offering and instructions related to participating in the Offering. Should the Company decide to proceed with the Offering, the prospectus will be published on the Company’s website at www.nordec.com.

“The robust business model, the successful integration as well as the strong outlook on growth and profitability for Nordec is an excellent opportunity to consider a listing in the home market of the Company,” says Johannes Laumann, CIO of Mutares.
