The Management Board of Polenergia S.A. (‘Company’) hereby announces that today they have become aware of issuing by Mansa Investments Sp. z o.o. (‘Mansa Investments’) of an announcement of establishment of the selling price and the number of shares in the sale of up to 15.4% of the Company’s shares through accelerated book-building, which reads as follows:
“On 20th May 2015 Mansa Investments Sp. z o.o., a company 100% indirectly controlled by Kulczyk Investments S.A. (‘Kulczyk Investments’), announced the selling price and the number of shares in the sale of up to 15.4% of shares of Polenergia S.A. (‘Company’ or ‘Polenergia’) through accelerated book-building. The final number of shares being sold was set at 7 000 000 (15.4%) and the selling price was set at PLN 27.00 per share.
The transaction met with large interest from Polish and foreign institutional investors, who expressed demand for the quantity of shares exceeding the number of shares offered. The transaction was aimed at increasing the Company’s freefloat, which should raise attractiveness of the Company to investors, as well as at diversifying the Company’s shareholders by offering the prevailing number of shares to new investors, who had not been shareholders of the Company yet, including foreign investors, who accounted for a significant part of the demand.
The expected gross revenues from the transaction to the benefit of Mansa Investments amount to PLN 189 000 000 (approximately EUR 46 544 845).
After the transaction Kulczyk Investments remains indirectly the majority shareholder of Polenergia.
‘We decided to dispose of a part of Polenergia’s shares in order to increase the Company’s freefloat and free its value growth potential, to the benefit of all its sharegholders. The transaction was a success and the offer met with great interest of a new group of shareholders. As Kulczyk Investments, we believe in the continued development and strategy of the Company, and we remain the majority shareholder of Polenergia, which is a strategic asset of our Group,’ said Sebastian Kulczyk, President of the Management Board at Kulczyk Investments.
Société Générale acted as a global coordinator, and together with Bank Zachodni WBK S.A. and Dom Maklerski PKO Banku Polskiego they acted as joint bookrunners in the process of accelerated book-building.”
