Zürich (pta007/08.06.2018/07:00) -
> Strong investor interest and significant subscription volumes shortly after beginning of open placement
> Peach Property therefore uses option to increase the target volume from CHF 50 million to up to CHF 100 million
> Funds earmarked for further portfolio extension and redemption of liabilities
The Board of Directors of Peach Property Group AG, an investor specializing in the management of residential property in Germany, has decided to increase the target volume of its subordinated hybrid warrant bond ("Bonds", Swiss Security nr. 41737602; ISIN CH0417376024) from CHF 50 million to up to CHF 100 million due to high demand.
The Company recorded a significant volume of subscriptions shortly after the beginning of the open placement period for shareholders and new investors, which runs through 15 June 2018 (noon CET). Additional shareholders and new investors have also expressed their interest in subscribing to the Bond. Any Bonds that have not been subscribed for during the pre-subscription period will therefore be offered to other interested shareholders and investors. An application for listing on the SIX Swiss Exchange has been submitted, with first trading day planned for 25 June 2018.
The subordinated hybrid warrant bond has an unlimited term and may be terminated by Peach Property Group AG no earlier than as of 22 June 2023. The interest coupon amounts to 1.75% p.a. until 22 June 2023 and afterwards to the then prevailing capital market interest rate (minimum zero) plus 9.25% p.a. With each bond with a nominal value of CHF 1,000, the bond holder receives 4 warrants for the purchase of registered shares of Peach Property Group AG. Every warrant entitles the holder to subscribe for one registered share at an exercise price of CHF 25.00 during the exercise period from 25 June 2018 to 25 June 2021.
Peach Property Group intends to use the newly raised funds for the further extension of its existing real estate portfolio in Germany, and for the redemption of other liabilities. After recently having notarised the acquisition of 1,066 residential units in Baden-Württemberg, Peach Property Group intends to continue expanding its real estate portfolio, which currently amounts to more than 8,000 units with a lettable area of 518,000 m2. The current portfolio generates an annual target rent of more than CHF 40 million.
