UNI - EN REPORT No5/2015
The Executive Board of IMMOFINANZ AG issues the following statement in a first reaction to the announcement by CA Immobilien Anlagen AG and O1 Group Limited that they intend to issue a joint voluntary tender offer for up to approx. 150.9 million IMMOFINANZ shares: “The announced offer price of EUR 2.80 per share, which represents an increase over the price indicated in the CA Immo/O1 statement on 25 February, is still much too low. It is more than one-third below the NAV (Net Asset Value) per IMMOFINANZ share and even lower than yesterday’s closing price“, commented CEO Eduard Zehetner.
“On the other hand, we are pleased that both companies see an investment in IMMOFINANZ as more promising than an increase in the O1 holding in CA Immo. This offer by CA Immo also confirms that the company now classifies investments in Russia – in contrast to its previously communicated strategy – through a shareholding in IMMOFINANZ to have significant future potential. In any event, we welcome the new shareholders who – as has finally been disclosed – already hold roughly 3% of IMMOFINANZ. We cannot, however, imagine that these two parties will be able to accumulate the desired number of shares over the stock exchange at the announced price. We cannot recommend this offer to our shareholders at the announced price“, indicated Zehetner.
