Eschborn, 05 October 2020 - Noratis AG (ISIN: DE000A2E4MK4, WKN: A2E4MK, "Noratis") plans to extend its successful business model as a portfolio developer of attractive and at the same time affordable living space in Germany with the financial means from a new corporate bond, amongst others. The bond is planned to have a volume of up to EUR 50m. The fixed interest coupon is expected to range between 5.00 and 5.50 percent p.a.
The funds from the Noratis bond are intended to underpin the Company's profitable growth in addition to its very sound equity capitalisation. Moreover, in its expansion strategy, Noratis can rely on Merz Real Estate GmbH & Co. KG (Merz), which is part of the Merz Group. At present, Merz has a stake of around 47.7 percent in Noratis. Within the scope of an investor and firm commitment agreement, Merz undertook to invest up to EUR 50m in Noratis through capital measures up to the end of 2024. As recently as September 2020, Noratis strengthened its equity significantly through a capital increase with a cash inflow in a gross amount of EUR 16.9m. With a current real estate portfolio including properties already acquired but not yet recognised in the balance sheet of more than 3,400 residential units in Germany, Noratis has already today a very stable business basis, which generated a recurring rental income of EUR 8.0m during the first half-year 2020 alone. Consequently, the rental income was already around 35 percent above the level of the previous year.
As a result of the further development of the residential portfolio that already generates stable rental income, Noratis combines the advantages of portfolio property management, such as plannable earnings with the yield opportunities of the property portfolio development. The developer yields are only recognised in the profit and loss account according to German GAAP (HGB) after the property has been sold; in the meantime they constitute hidden reserves in the balance sheet.
The Noratis bond shall be issued in denominations of a nominal EUR 1,000; the planned term shall amount to five years. A public offer is planned in Germany, Austria, and Luxembourg, presumably from the end of October 2020 onwards. Subscription orders shall be placed through the subscription functionality "DirectPlace" of Deutsche Börse AG. In addition, an accompanying international private placement of the bond with institutional investors shall take place. The inclusion of the bond in the stock exchange trading in the Open Market (Quotation Board) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange shall take place in November 2020. The Sole Global Coordinator and Bookrunner is ICF BANK AG from Frankfurt.
