Paris, 7 July 2015 – Altamir is pleased to announce the initial public offering of one of its directly owned portfolio companies, Capio, a leading provider of private healthcare services in Europe. Capio's shares were admitted to trading on the Nasdaq Stockholm exchange on 30 June (ticker: CAPIO).
The SEK 2,334m (approx. €250m) transaction is made up of a SEK 750m (approx. €80m) capital increase and the sale of shares by existing shareholders for SEK 1,584m (approx. €170m). On the basis of an IPO price of €48.5 per share, Capio's market capitalisation represents SEK 6,846m (approx. €740m).
The funds raised will enable Capio to repay part of its debt and finance new investments. These include modernising treatment methods and facilities as well as expanding service offerings in both its historical and new markets.
Altamir sold part of its holding for approximately €9m and holds a 3.3% share in the company's capital post-IPO (excluding the over-allotment option), against 5.5% previously. The sale was based on a valuation equivalent to 1.3 times the last valuation recorded at December 31, 2014.
