PRESS RELEASE: Technology group BCM successfully completes its private placement ahead of the planned listing at € 32.00 per share
Frankfurt/Main, July 09, 2020.
Brockhaus Capital Management AG (BCM), a long-term oriented technology group focusing on high-margin and high-growth technology champions within the German Mittelstand, has set the volume for its private placement based on the placement price of € 32.00 per share determined ahead of the private placement on July 07, 2020. The listing of the shares in the regulated market (Prime Standard) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange and first day of trading is expected to occur on July 14, 2020.
In the private placement a total of 3,593,750 new shares were placed, of which 468,750 shares are considered to cover over-allotments. Assuming full exercise of the primary Greenshoe option, gross proceeds will amount to approximately € 115 million. As part of the private placement, the management board, supervisory board and other employees of BCM as well as the senior management of BCM’s subsidiaries participated with € 1 million in total in the capital increase. BCM will use the proceeds from the capital increase to finance its inorganic growth strategy through new acquisitions in line with its strict acquisition criteria and leveraging on its accretive pipeline, enabling the long-term development into one of the leading technology groups for the German Mittelstand.
Assuming a full exercise of the Greenshoe option, BCM’s market capitalization amounts to € 332 million, whereof the placement volume of €115 million amounts to approx. 35%.
“Pursuing a capital increase and subsequent listing during Corona times is only risky at first glance. The initial market feedback when we started the process reconfirmed the attractiveness of our business model, offering institutional investors a gateway into German Mittelstand technology champions – a niche which is otherwise inaccessible to capital market investors. We are very proud to have taken this important next step and would like to thank all our employees and investors who have supported us so far, and will continue to support us in the future – now as a publicly listed company” says Marco Brockhaus, founder and CEO of BCM. “The proceeds we raised enable us to acquire further businesses within our strict focus on high-margin, high-growth technology champions and brings us one step closer to our goal of building one of the leading technology groups for the German Mittelstand.”
The listing and first day of trading in the regulated market (Prime Standard) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange is expected for July 14, 2020, under the securities identification number (WKN) A2GSU4, the international securities identification number (ISIN) DE000A2GSU42 and the stock exchange symbol BKHT. Settlement and delivery of the shares placed with investors will also take place on July 14, 2020.
