Lucerne, 18 June 2018 - Mobimo Holding AG ("Mobimo") has signed a transaction agreement with Immobiliengesellschaft Fadmatt AG ("Fadmatt") and has submitted an offer to the company's shareholders to acquire all of the Fadmatt shares. A number of shareholders who collectively hold slightly more than 50% of the share capital have already agreed to accept the offer.
Fadmatt was founded in 1861 with the aim of creating low-cost workers' apartments in Zurich. Today, the company owns 503 apartments spread over seven locations in the cantons of Zurich and Schaffhausen. The developments are externally managed, while the five-person Board of Directors is responsible for managing the company. Following extensive renovations and the construction of new buildings in recent years, the portfolio as a whole is in good health. The portfolio generates a rental income of over CHF 10 million p.a.
Mobimo communicated its interest in an acquisition already in January 2018. After a structured sales process, the Board of Directors of Fadmatt has now decided to support Mobimo's increased offer. Assuming that the offer will be concluded, Mobimo will integrate the properties into its own portfolio and take over the management of the properties.
A number of conditions have to be fulfilled in order to conclude the offer, including the tender of at least 67% of the share capital of Fadmatt. At least half of the acquisition price will be paid with shares from Mobimo's authorised capital. The newly created Mobimo shares will be entitled to a full dividend for the financial year 2018. In order to determine the exchange ratio, the Mobimo share was assigned a fixed value of CHF 244.04 based on the volume-weighted 30-day average price from 30 April to 13 June 2018. This price has already been adjusted for the distribution of CHF 10.00 per Mobimo share to the Mobimo shareholders, taking place on 20 June 2018 (ex-date).
