Joint Global Coordinator & Joint Bookrunner
SEK 1,642 million
Accelerated Bookbuild Offering


Joint Global Coordinator & Joint Bookrunner

Van Lanschot Kempen acted as Joint Global Coordinator & Joint Bookrunner in the SEK 1,642 million capital increase by Catena

Transaction highlights

  • Capital increase via accelerated bookbuild offering of 4,534,944 new ordinary shares at a subscription price of SEK 362.00 per share, raising gross proceeds of SEK 1,642 million (c. EUR 151 million) for Catena
  • The transaction was launched following a selective market sounding exercise, which resulted in indications of interest in excess of the total deal size prior to launch, thereby evidencing large investor appetite for logistics real estate despite current market turmoil
  • In addition, ahead of launch, Catena’s second largest shareholder WDP (10%) expressed its intention to participate pro rata in the transaction
  • The order book was covered within 25 minutes post launch and the final order book was multiple times covered, with the majority of shares allocated to existing long-only shareholders and real estate specialist investors from continental Europe and the United Kingdom
  • The subscription price represented a limited discount of 0.16% to last reported EPRA NTA of SEK 362.58 per share (30 September 2022)
  • Catena intends to use the transaction proceeds to (i) support its existing development pipeline; (ii) allow Catena to continue growing by new project schemes including sustainable energy projects; and (iii) capitalise on attractive acquisitions whilst also maintaining a solid capital structure in today’s volatile financial market circumstances
