Joint Global Coordinator & Joint Bookrunner
SEK 2,097 million
Accelerated Bookbuild Offering


Joint Global Coordinator & Joint Bookrunner

Van Lanschot Kempen acted as Joint Global Coordinator and Joint Bookrunner in the SEK 2.1 billion Accelerated Bookbuild Offering by Catena

Transaction highlights

  • Capital increase via accelerated bookbuild offering of 4,660,344 new shares, corresponding to c.9.3% of the company’s outstanding shares prior to the transaction and generating gross proceeds of SEK 2,097 million (c. €188 million) for Catena
  • The shares were placed at SEK 450 per share, representing a very limited discount of 2.3% vis-à-vis the closing price prior to transaction announcement and a 2.0% premium to the 10-day VWAP
  • The ABB was launched following a market sounding exercise, primarily targeting international Real Estate specialist and domestic long-only investors, which resulted in visibility on indications of interest well in excess of the deal size, including from two anchor investors
  • In addition, ahead of launch, Catena’s second largest shareholder WDP Invest expressed its intention to participate pro-rata (10.1%)
  • 95% of the final order book, which was multiple times subscribed for, was allocated to long-term investors, resulting in a very strong aftermarket with the share trading up 2.1% on the day after the ABB
  • Catena will use the proceeds to accelerate the development of its landbank with a SEK 16.5 billion identified investment potential as well as to capitalise on a SEK 2 billion short-term pipeline of accretive acquisition opportunities, and to facilitate its expansion through new project initiatives, including in sustainable energy projects for at least SEK 500 million in the next two years
  • This transaction sets a new pricing record in European Real Estate equity issues in the last two years and clearly underscores the continued strong tailwinds in equity capital markets for listed Real Estate companies and Logistics Real Estate in particular
