Degroof Petercam contributed as Global Coordinator to Leasinvest’s successful € 84 million public offering of new shares

Brussels, 2 October 2018 – On 19 September, Leasinvest, a B-REIT investing in high quality and well-located retail and office buildings in Luxembourg, Belgium and Austria, announced its intention to raise € 84 million through a public offering of new shares with irreducible allocation rights to existing shareholders.

The subscription period, from 20 September and until 1 October, resulted in a subscription of  82.56% of the offered shares. Earlier today, the unexercised irreducible allocation rights, under form of scrips, were placed with institutional investors in an accelerated bookbuild offering. As a consequence, Leasinvest’s envisaged capital increase is fully subscribed.

Degroof Petercam acted as Global Coordinator in this capital increase, which allows Leasinvest to further pursue its growth strategy (including € 127m in already identified acquisitions), while maintaining a balanced capital structure.

Michel Van Geyte, CEO of Leasinvest: “Leasinvest thanks all its shareholders for their confidence. With these additional financial resources, we can continue to focus on growth and further create value for our shareholders.”

François Wohrer, Group Head of Investment Banking at Degroof Petercam: “We are very pleased with the success of this transaction, in support of Leasinvest’s growth story. We would like to congratulate the Leasinvest management team and its shareholders and thank them for the trust they placed in us all these years.”
