News series “German IPOs & IBOs in the spotlight” – 01/2017, 25.01.2017

German IPOs and IBOs 01/2017Wiesbaden, 25. January 2017 – Currently, much discussion is being held about possible stock market candidates for the year 2017. These include the mechanical engineer Aumann, the prosthesis manufacturer Ottobock, Siemens Healthineers, the health department of Siemens, or the restaurant chain Vapiano, which, according to market rumors, are waiting in the wings for an IPO. With the proceeds from the issuance, which could be around 200 million euro, Vapiano wants to finance its further expansion.

According to media reports, Deutsche Bank is also considering a partial IPO of its fund subsidiary Deutsche Asset Management. Though, a final decision has not yet been made. An IPO of Postbank is still under discussion as well.

More likely, however, is a timely IPO of Aumann. The business group belongs with over 90 percent to the associated company MBB, whose share price is skyrocketing. Aumann is currently profiting from the e-mobility trend and is recording extraordinary orders due to the demand for electric mobility solutions.

In the meantime, Habag-Lloyd AG has launched an offer for a new 150 million euro-bond. The bond has a maturity of five years and is going to be listed on the Luxembourg Stock Exchange after the placement. In addition, Golfino is represented on the capital market with a new bond. The bond holders of the 2012/2017 bond are able to accept a conversion offer by February 10th 2017, in which their debentures of the old bond can be converted in a 1:1 ratio into subordinated bonds of the new 2016/2023 bond. The new bond is issued with a coupon of 8.0% p.a. interest. The volume of the new bond is limited to a maximum of 4 million euro; the previous bond had a volume of 12 million euro.
