Subtitle: Based on feedback from the roadshow meetings with institutional investors, the management of Scan Energy A/S and HSBC Trinkaus & Burkhardt, the Global Co-ordinator and Sole Bookrunner, have set the price range for the IPO and defined further details of the offering.
Dybvad (euro adhoc) - Investors will have the opportunity to place orders for the offered shares in Scan Energy (Ticker: 8SE; Common Code: 046594398; ISIN: DK0060197226) within a price range of EUR 9.00 to EUR 13.00 per share. The offering period starts on 1 December 2009 and expires on 7 December at 12.00 noon CET for retail and institutional investors. The trading of the shares on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange is expected to commence on 9 December 2009.
"We are pleased with the positive feedback from potential investors following the roadshow meetings. Scan Energy will be the first pure play independent power producer focused on wind and solar to be listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. Our IPO offers investors an opportunity to participate in the long-term growth of the renewable energy market. We believe that the price range which has been determined now provides an attractive investment opportunity and reflects the current market environment.", said Karsten Olsen, CEO of Scan Energy A/S. "Especially the good visibility of our cash flows from a well diversified asset portfolio and the growth opportunities in Poland and Italy have been of special interest to investors."
The offering consists of a public offering in Germany and private placements in Denmark and in certain other jurisdictions outside Germany and outside the U.S. Scan Energy offers up to 17,500,000 new shares authorised to be issued by the company's general shareholders' meeting. In addition, up to 2,625,000 existing shares from the holdings of some of the current major shareholders are offered for purposes of a potential over-allotment ("greenshoe"). If all shares, including the greenshoe shares but excluding any warrants issued to the subscribers who participated in the September 2009 share capital increase, were placed, the free float of the company (excluding any free float from the current shareholders) would amount to 48.6 percent following the completion of the offering.
Assuming full placement of the new shares from the capital increase within the price range the company would generate gross issue proceeds of EUR 158 million to EUR 228 million.
The terms and conditions for the offering of the company's shares are set out in a prospectus dated and published on 19 November 2009 and in a supplement to the prospectus to be published immediately after approval. The prospectus is, and, following its approval, the supplement will be, available on the company's website (www.scan-energy.com), subject to certain restrictions, and on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange's website (www.deutsche-boerse.com).
As stated in the prospectus and its supplement, the price range will allow subscribers who participated in the September 2009 share capital increase against contributions in kind to exercise up to 933,903 warrants within a two-week period commencing on 3 February, 2010. These warrants were issued by the extraordinary General Shareholders' Meeting held on 20 October 2009 with the intention to ensure that these investors are treated equal to investors subscribing for the shares in the IPO.
HSBC Trinkaus & Burkhardt AG acts as Global Co-ordinator and Sole Bookrunner in Scan Energy´s IPO and Macquarie Capital (Europe) Limited and Société Générale Corporate & Investment Banking act as co-lead managers.
