Hogan Lovells advises va-Q-tec AG on a capital increase
Led by its Frankfurt partner Michael Schlitt, Hogan Lovells advised va-Q-tec AG, a pioneer in highly efficient products and solutions in the area of thermal insulation and TempChain logistics, on a capital increase excluding subscription rights.
All new shares were placed with Lupus alpha Asset Management, an institutional investor not previously involved in va-Q-tec and pursuing a long-term investment approach. A total of 325,498 new registered shares were placed.
The new shares were admitted to trading on the Regulated Market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange on 18. November 2021 and simultaneously to the subsegment of the Regulated Market with additional admission obligations (Prime Standard).
The capital increase is intended to provide va-Q-tec with further scope for maneuver for future investments in order to further drive the company's strong growth and at the same time to maintain stable and healthy balance sheet ratios in the event of an expansion of business activities.
Hogan Lovells had already advised va-Q-tec AG on its IPO (2016) and most recently on the placement of a bond (2020).
