Cologne/Frankfurt am Main, 26.02.2020 – The new bond (ISIN: DE000A254Y19, WKN: A254Y1) of VERI-ANOS Real Estate Aktiengesellschaft – a real estate company operating at the interface between the real estate and capital markets – which is currently being placed via private placement, has been rated “attrac-tive, positive outlook” by the KFM Mittelstandsanleihen-Barometer. In its bond rating published today, KFM awards the 6.00 % VERIANOS bond 4.5 of 5 possible stars. As an independent expert on the corporate bond market, KFM Deutsche Mittelstand AG regularly evaluates and weights selected bonds. KFM sees a particu-lar strength of the VERIANOS business model in the combination of analysis, structuring and implementation expertise in complex real estate projects, such as the current neighbourhood improvement of the former fishing district “El Cabanyal” in Valencia, which was recently voted one of the “coolest” districts in Europe by the English daily newspaper “The Guardian”.
Tobias Bodamer, member of the VERIANOS Management Board: “Of course we are pleased with this as-sessment and know that our business model, which has been stable since the company was founded in 2011, our solid financial structure and our growth prospects are important aspects in this regard”. Following the successful BaFin approval as a capital management company (KVG), VERIANOS expects to achieve a significantly higher transaction volume with existing and new investment products and thus increasing re-sults in the coming years. Internationalisation is to be further promoted and opportunities and different devel-opments in the individual markets throughout the EU are to be exploited. “Our goal is to further develop our business model in the coming years in a controlled and sustainable manner for the benefit of our investors, taking into account the highest level of transparency and reliability,” said Tobias Bodamer.
The issue volume of the new VERIANOS bond is up to EUR 30 million and will be placed in several tranches in line with the corresponding investment opportunities. The first tranche has a volume of up to EUR 10 million. The interest rate is fixed at 6.00 % p.a., and the new bond has a maturity of 5 years. The subscrip-tion period for the private placement is expected to end on 3 March 2020 at 12:00 a.m., subject to an exten-sion or early closure. The bond will be listed on the Open Market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. VERI-ANOS plans to invest the proceeds of the bond issue’s first tranche primarily in co-investments in existing real estate funds as well as in the VERIANOS European Real Estate Opportunities Fund and VERIANOS Real Estate Mezzanine Fund, which are currently in the fundraising process. This will significantly expand the company’s business activities, thus ensuring the sustainable, long-term development.
