As reported today a research report on AS DelfinGroup and its valuation by LHV analysts was published on AS DelfinGroup website (www.delfingroup.lv). According to it the company's post-money valuation (or valuation after the raised capital in the IPO process) is estimated between 80-90 million euros, assuming that at least 12.5 million euros will be raised during the IPO (so the company is able to achieve its financial targets). Didzis Ādmīdiņš, Chairman of the Management Board of AS DelfinGroup, comments: “The IPO share price is 1.52 euros, which means that the company currently values itself pre-money at approximately 60 million euros. If the new capital raised is added arithmetically, the value stands at around 73 million euros. However, LHV Bank's analysts (taking into account their value range midpoint, i.e. 85 million euros) believe that the value of the company is higher than the IPO price. We respect the opinion of independent analysts about the value of the company. We have read the report and believe that it is of good quality. It is common practice that the IPO share price is lower than the fair value of the shares, as this is how rewards in the form of so-called IPO discount are passed to the investors who trust and dare to become shareholders of a company in the IPO process.”
The number of shares to be issued in the IPO is up to 8 395 000, and the total planned number of shares of the company after the IPO will be up to 48 395 000. Accordingly, the fair value of one share currently might be approximately in the range of 1.65 to 1.86 euro (given the new capital raised is at least 12,5 million euros).
The minimum subscription amount per investor is 1 share. However there is no limit for the maximum amount of share subscription.
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) can subscribe for the offer shares.
