International law firm Pinsent Masons has advised CANCOM SE on its share capital increase, valued at €174.2 million.

CANCOM SE, listed on MDAX and TecDAX (ISIN DE0005419105,) is a leading provider of IT infrastructure and IT services in Germany and Austria. On 3/4 December 2019, it successfully increased its share capital by 10%. The new shares have been offered to qualified investors through a private placement using an accelerated book building process.

The shares were placed by Hauck & Aufhäuser Privatbankiers AG, Frankfurt am Main and have also been offered to institutional investors in the United States of America.

The net proceeds from the capital increase are to be used to strengthen the CANCOM Group's equity base and for further corporate acquisitions, in particular to support growth in the Cloud Solutions segment.

The advising Capital Markets Team lead by Dr Alexander Thomas counselled on all legal aspects of the capital increase, including the US capital market law aspects of the transaction. The team comprised of Dr Alexander Thomas, Dr Susanne Lenz, Dušan Stojković and Roberta Markovina.

Pinsent Masons also advised CANCOM SE on its previous capital increase in 2016.
