Aedifica reports 89% take up on €418m new shares issue

Belgian healthcare REIT Aedifica has announced an 89% take up on its €418m capital increase.

According to the REIT, 5.5 million new shares were subscribed for during the subscription period, which ended 2 May, at €68 per new share, with remaining shares sold through private placement.

Stefaan Gielens (pictured), chief executive of Aedifica, commented: “Aedifica is very pleased with the result of this capital increase. Moreover, it is the largest capital increase ever among Belgian listed real estate companies. This success is a clear vote of confidence of the existing and new shareholders in Aedifica’s strategy. We therefore wish to expressly thank everyone for their support.”

Aedifica recently entered the UK care home market with the acquisition of the UK care home portfolio formerly owned by US real estate investor Lone Star for £450 million.
