HanseYachts decides on capital increase
Today, the supervisory board of HanseYachts AG approved a capital increase in the amount of approximately 7.58 million euros through the issuance of approximately 2.65 million new shares, as decided by the management board. As part of this capital measure, the majority shareholder of HanseYachts, Aurelius Equity Opportunities SE & Co. KGaA, is contributing the "SEALINE" brand licensed until now and used by HanseYachts, in exchange for issuing 1,602,098 new shares, and is also subscribing to a cash capital increase in the amount of 3 million euros in exchange for issuing 1,048,951 new shares.
The week before, HanseYachts had already concluded a refinancing package totalling 11.1 million euros with its principal banks, the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and the Aurelius Group. The house bank of the Polish subsidiary HanseYachts Sp. z o.o. had extended its loans as well.
"We are very pleased with the trust placed in us. The solid financial basis, our continuing historically high order backlog of currently around 270 million euros, and the skills and commitment of the approximately 1,400 colleagues at HanseYachts are the perfect foundation for the successful further development of HanseYachts," said Hanjo Runde, CEO of HanseYachts AG.
