DETAILED INFORMATION ABOUT THE OFFER, INCLUDING THE OFFER DOCUMENT, IS AVAILABLE AT https://en.vonovia-h.de.
- Following completion of the acquisition of Blackstone's shares in Hembla and purchase of shares in the market, Vonovia currently owns approximately 72.3% of the voting rights (approximately 65.0% of the share capital) in Hembla
- Statement from Hembla's independent bid committee regarding the offer from Vonovia has been published
- Offer expires on 9 December 2019: Full and final offer with an attractive premium
Bochum/Stockholm, 21 November 2019 - Since Vonovia has announced its acquisition of Blackstone's shares in Hembla and its mandatory cash offer to the shareholders of Hembla, Vonovia controls approximately 72.3% of the total number of voting rights and 65.0% of the total number of shares. This also includes shares purchased in the market.
On 21 November 2019, Hembla published a press release regarding the independent bid committee's statement regarding Vonovia's mandatory cash offer for Hembla and the fairness opinion regarding the offer which has been obtained by the independent bid committee. The full statement and fairness opinion is available at Hembla's website.
Vonovia's CEO Rolf Buch said: "We take note of the statement by the independent bid committee that was communicated earlier today. Nevertheless, we believe that the offer is a good opportunity for Hembla shareholders to realize value, and we already control 72.3% of the votes. We also note that the independent bid committee points out that the liquidity in Hembla's share may become more limited going forward. I am fully convinced that combining Hembla with Vonovia has a strong strategic rationale. Vonovia is committed to the Swedish market and intends to create long-term benefits for tenants by further investing in Hembla's properties. We are a responsible owner and it is not part of our strategy to realize value through future sales."
On 7 November 2019, Vonovia launched a mandatory offer for the remaining shares in Hembla. Vonovia offers SEK 215 in cash per B-share in Hembla. This represents a premium of 15.6 percent compared to the volume weighted average share price for Hembla's B-shares on Nasdaq Stockholm in the last three months which ended on 20 September 2019 (the last trading day before Vonovia's acquisition of Blackstone's shares in Hembla was announced). The offer values all shares in Hembla to approximately SEK 19.979 billion.
Vonovia has identified total operational and financial synergies of EUR 30 million. The ability to realize these synergies is purely based on the acquisition of approximately 69.30% of the voting rights in Hembla and is independent of the result of the Offer. Vonovia does therefore not require a successful delisting of Hembla to deliver synergies or to reach any other announced acquisition criteria.
The acceptance period for the offer ends on 9 December 2019. Vonovia has made it clear that the price in the offer is full and final, and provides an attractive premium. Vonovia also emphasized that it intends to continue with Hembla's existing dividend policy of paying no dividend to its shareholders in the coming years, since investments in the existing properties provide a good return. As a long-term investor and holder of properties it is not Vonovia's strategy to realize value through the future sale of buildings to distribute dividends. Vonovia intends to focus on expansion and further investment in Hembla's properties consistent with its commitment to the Swedish Market.
Detailed information about Vonovia's offer to the shareholders in Hembla, including the offer document, is available at https://en.vonovia-h.de.
The company, which is based in Bochum, has been listed on the stock exchange since 2013 and on the DAX 30 since September 2015. Vonovia SE is also listed on the international indices STOXX Europe 600, MSCI Germany, GPR 250 and EPRA/NAREIT Europe. Vonovia has a workforce of more than 10,000 employees.
