In order to finance the company's development, AB Fenêtres Groupe's senior executives are pleased to report the success of the increase in capital of ¤30m with qualified investors, and conducted by Amsterdams Effectenkantoor BV (AEK).
The raising of funds was achieved with French, Swiss and Dutch qualified investors, on the basis of an issue of 2,666,666 new shares at a price of ¤11.25 per share. The company's capital now comprises 4,179,394 shares.
Following the signing of two letters of intent, at the end of April, this capital increase consolidates the Group's senior executives wish to achieve external growth in Central Europe, mainly in the Czech Republic. It thus gives the Group optimised and integrated production facilities of high performance able to meet the French market's high demand.
In line with the senior executives' wish to ensure the company's development, such investments will substantially reduce production costs and mechanically improve the Group's operating margin. At the same, thanks to commercial and production synergies that will be achieved with the French business, they will also enable AB Fenêtres Groupe to take a sustainable position in fast growing markets, notably characterised by the buoyant property sector.
