Symrise successfully completes capital increase

  • Strong investor demand
  • 5,614 million new shares placed
  • Gross proceeds amount of EUR 400 million
  • First refinancing element for acquisition of US company ADF/IDF completed


Within a very short time Symrise AG successfully completed its announced capital increase based on authorized capital. In an accelerated bookbuilding procedure, the company placed 5,614,036 new shares with institutional investors at an issue price of EUR 71.25 per share. The gross proceeds of EUR 400 million are earmarked for the partial funding of the planned acquisition of ADF/IDF, a supplier of natural ingredients. The acquisition was announced at the end of January.
 

"We are delighted with the positive response to our capital increase. We regard the strong demand from the capital market as proof of the attractiveness of the Symrise share. For us, it is a clear sign of confidence in our proven strategy and at the same time a further confirmation of the strategic logic behind the planned acquisition of ADF/IDF. With this capital increase, we have quickly succeeded in putting the first financial cornerstone in place for the acquisition," said Olaf Klinger, CFO of Symrise AG.
 

The capital increase based on authorized capital, excluding shareholders' subscription rights, was carried out on the basis of the authorization granted to the Executive Board by the Annual General Meeting on 12 May 2015. It is expected to be entered in the Commercial Register on 11 February 2019. As a result of the capital increase, the share capital of Symrise AG will be increased from EUR 129,812,574 to EUR 135,426,610. The new shares are entitled to dividends as of the year 2018. On 11 February 2019, the new shares are expected to be admitted to trading without a prospectus, and on 12 February 2019, are expected to be included in the existing quotation in the subsegment of the regulated market segment with additional post-admission obligations (Prime Standard) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.
 

Pending the entry of the completed capital increase in the Commercial Register, the capital increase will generate gross proceeds of around EUR 400 million for Symrise. The net proceeds will be used for the partial refinancing of the bridge facility in connection with the ADF/IDF acquisition, as announced on 31 January 2019. Through the planned acquisition of ADF/IDF, headquartered in Springfield, MO, Symrise plans to significantly expand the Nutrition segment and its presence in North America. The planned acquisition will be financed, as announced, with a combination of debt and equity.
 

BNP Paribas and UniCredit Bank AG acted as Joint Global Coordinators and Joint Bookrunners on the capital increase. Symrise had been advised by Clifford Chance Deutschland LLP, BNP Paribas and UniCredit Bank AG had been advised by White & Case.LLP.

Fonds Research 2019: S.E.A. Asian High Yield Bond bietet attraktive Investitionschance

Auch 2019 hat die GBC AG unter der Vielzahl an Publikumsfonds neun „Fonds Champions“ herausgefiltert. Darunter auch den S.E.A. Asian High Yield Bond (ISIN: LU1138637738), der eine gute Anlagechance anbietet mit einer Strategie, die kaum reproduzierbar ist. Insbesondere vor dem Hintergrund des anhaltenden Niedrigzinsniveaus sehen wir den Anleihefonds als äußerst attraktive Investitionschance, um nachhaltige und volatilitätsarme Renditen zu erzielen. Wir haben den S.E.A. Asian High Yield Bond mit 4 von 5 Falken eingestuft.
