According to the AS DelfinGroup IPO prospectus, which was approved on 21 September 2021 by the Financial and Capital Market Commission (FCMC), the company plans to issue up to 8,395,000 new shares. The price per share in the public offering will be EUR 1.52. Through the IPO, AS DelfinGroup plans to raise EUR 12.76 million in new capital. All the capital raised will be used to drive the company’s future growth, as well as to reduce its financing costs. The current AS DelfinGroup shareholders will not sell any of their shares during the IPO process.
According to the Financial and Captial Market Commision (FCMC) approved IPO prospectus AS DelfinGroup will make its initial public offering (IPO) from 28 September to 11 October (including). Any private investors from Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia and institutional investors from Latvia and selected member states of the European Economic Area (EEA), as well as other institutional investors in accordance with the prospectus for the initial public offering (IPO) will be able to subscribe for the offer shares.
The focus of the AS DelfinGroup IPO process is to attract retail investors. A significant proportion of the total number of shares that will be offered through the IPO will be allocated to retail investors in Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia. During the first four share subscription days (from 28 September to 1 October 2021 inclusive) AS DelfinGroup will make a special offer to retail investors in the Baltics: each investor is guaranteed to receive up to 500 shares on a first come, first served basis. Therefore, given the IPO price per share of EUR 1.52, retail investors in the Baltic States will be given the chance to receive a guaranteed allocation of shares worth at least EUR 760 (offer valid within the scope of the share issue). The company’s objective is to ensure the widest possible range of investors.
