Aalst, 22 September 2017 (1:15 pm) – Montea Comm. VA announced that, following the public offering to subscribe to the increase of capital and the successful private placement of the scrips, the current shareholders and new investors have now undertaken to subscribe to 100% of the public offering.

Today, 22 September 2017, the 903,644 non-exercised irreducible allocation rights (scrips) were offered for sale to institutional investors via an accelerated private placement procedure for scrips. Investors who purchase these scrips have irrevocably undertaken to exercise the scrips and to subscribe for 150,607 new shares at a subscription price of EUR 41 per share. The gross income from the offer thus amounts to the targeted maximum of EUR 68,004,527. The net income from the offer amounts to approximately EUR 67 million (after deduction of estimated costs and expenses).

Els Vervaecke, CFO: “The Board of Directors and management are delighted that this operation has gone through successfully. We would like to thank our current and new shareholders for the trust and confidence they have shown in us.”

The net income (minus certain costs) for the holders of non-exercised irreducible allocation rights amounts to EUR 0.68 per coupon no. 17. This amount will in principle be available and paid out as of 27 September 2017. If the net result is less than EUR 0.01 per scrip, it will not be paid to the holders of the non-exercised irreducible allocation rights but it will be transferred to Montea.

The payment of the subscription price, the determination of the increase of capital and listing of the new shares on Euronext Brussels and Euronext Paris are expected to take place on 26 September 2017. After this operation, the number of Montea shares in circulation will increase from 9,951,884 to 11,610,531.
