Leasinvest Real Estate SCA announces that following the scrip private placement, 100% of the public offering of new shares has now been committed to be subscribed by existing shareholders and new investors.
Today, 20 June 2013, the 341,177 unexercised preferential subscription rights have been offered for sale to institutional investors in Belgium and in the European Economic Area via an accelerated scrip private placement procedure at a price of 0.05 EUR per scrip. All unexercised preferential subscription rights have been purchased by institutional investors. These investors have, by purchasing scrips, irrevocably committed to exercise the scrips and to subscribe to new shares in the ratio of 3 new shares for 13 scrips at a subscription price of 65.5 EUR per new share.
The net proceeds (after deduction of certain costs) to which holders of unexercised rights are entitled, amount to 0.05 EUR per coupon no 15. As of 25 June 2013 this amount will be paid to the holders of unexercised preferential subscription rights. The holders of unexercised rights linked to registered shares will be given directions by Leasinvest Real Estate that must be observed to obtain the net proceeds. The holders of unexercised preferential subscription rights linked to dematerialised shares will be informed by their financial institution of the procedure that must be observed to obtain the net proceeds they are entitled to. The holders of unexercised rights linked to bearer shares will receive the amount upon presentation of coupon no 15.
