Press release (PDF)

Helvetica Property Investors AG will carry out a capital increase of up to CHF 117.5 million for the HSL fund from November 16 to December 2, 2021, 12:00 a.m. CEST. Each existing share will be allocated one (1) subscription right. Five (5) subscription rights give the right to subscribe for three (3) new shares against payment of the issue price in Swiss francs. A maximum of 1,028,366 new shares will be issued. The number of shares in circulation will increase from 1,713,944 to a maximum of 2,742,310 shares. The issue price amounts to CHF 114.24 net per new share and was determined in accordance with the fund contract (§ 17 para. 3). The exact number of newly issued shares will be determined after the end of the subscription period, depending on the number of subscriptions received. There will be no negotiation of subscription rights. Subscription rights that have not been exercised during the subscription period will expire without value after December 2, 2021 at 12:00 p.m. CEST. Payment for the new shares subscribed will be due on December 6, 2021.

The funds from the capital increase are intended for the already guaranteed purchase of 16 well-located buildings with more than 287 apartments with a value of CHF 143 million. The portfolio is divided between the cantons of Basel-City (31%), St. Gallen (33%), Thurgau (10%) and Zurich (26%). Thanks to the acquisitions, the fund grows to more than 1,000 apartments in attractive locations in Switzerland. The purchase of the buildings should take place immediately after the payment of the capital increase and represents a further important step in view of the planned listing of the HSL fund on the SIX Swiss Exchange by the end of 2022. For the financial year 2021, the fund management plans to increase profit distribution by 10% year-on-year to CHF 3.40 per share.

Zürcher Kantonalbank is acting as lead manager in this transaction. Fund units are traded over-the-counter by Bank J. Safra Sarasin SA.
