Swiss Life REF (CH) Swiss Properties: Successful capital increase


The capital increase of the Swiss Life REF (LUX) Swiss Properties real estate fund has been successfully concluded. The fund is gaining new assets totalling the maximum amount of about CHF 381 million from the issue.

The capital increase from 21 November to 3 December 2018 for Swiss Life REF (CH) Swiss Properties attracted a lot of interest from investors and was concluded successfully. Overall, the volume of new funds amounted to some CHF 381 million, or a subscription rate of 100%.

The issue took place on commission (best effort basis) as part of a subscription offer in Switzerland. No subscription rights were traded during the subscription period. With a subscription ratio of three (3) to two (2) (three subscription rights equate to the purchase of two new fund units), the maximum amount of 3 600 000 units was distributed for an issue price of CHF 108.00 per unit. The payment under subscription for the new units will be made on 10 December 2018. From that date there will be
9 000 000 units in circulation.

The new capital will finance the acquisition of a portfolio with 38 properties and a volume of around CHF 500 million. The fund will thus comprise over 86 properties with a market value of around CHF 1.2 billion. As a result, investors will benefit from broader diversification in terms of locations, uses and tenants. A listing on the SIX Swiss Exchange is planned in 2019.
