NautaDutilh has assisted Amsterdam Commodities N.V. (Acomo), a trader in food ingredients listed on Euronext Amsterdam, in raising approximately EUR 96.1 million through an accelerated bookbuilding offering (ABB). The proceeds of the ABB will be used to finance the acquisition of Tradin Organic, which was announced on 10 November 2020. NautaDutilh also successfully assisted Acomo in this acquisition and the refinancing of its current facilities (see previous News article).
Acomo will issue approximately 19.99% new ordinary shares at a fixed offer price of EUR 19.50 per share. Up to 10% of these ordinary shares will be issued and settled on 4 December 2020. The remaining number of up to 10% ordinary shares will be issued and settled by Acomo after having obtained shareholder approval for the tabled resolutions during its extraordinary general meeting (EGM) on 22 December 2020. For this EGM, 43.1% of the shareholders have already irrevocably committed to vote in favour of the resolutions tabled at the EGM.
The NautaDutilh team was led by Antonia Netiv and consisted of Dewi Walian, Sabrina Legerstee and Maaike Lelifeld (Capital Markets), Paul van der Bijl and Esther Schreiber (Corporate Notarial) and Nina Kielman and Alissia Sudibyo (Tax).
