NautaDutilh assisted ABN AMRO Bank N.V., Joh. Berenberg, Gossler & Co. KG, Bryan, Garnier & Co Limited, and Bank Degroof Petercam SA/NV in the capital raise of Avantium N.V. ("Avantium") by means of a public offering of Avantium shares with a priority allocation period for its existing shareholders, a retail offering and a private placement, for an amount of EUR 45 million. 

Avantium is a leading technology development company and a forerunner in renewable chemistry. It develops novel technologies based on renewable carbon sources as an alternative to fossil-based chemicals and plastics. The proceeds of the capital raise are used for, among other things, investments in the commercialisation of Avantium's technology programmes, such as their innovative plantMEG™ technology. This technology is used to produce plantMEG, which is a vital ingredient in the production of polyesters widely used in textiles and packaging. 

Lead Partner Antonia Netiv says: "This deal was truly innovative in terms of structure and turned out to be a great way to execute a capital markets deal in challenging market environment. It was truly a pleasure working with the banks and Avantium to make this possible."

The team further consisted of Sabrina Legerstee, Maaike Lelifeld, Petra Zijp, Thyla Fontein-Streefkerk, Marko Heezen (Capital Markets), Nina Kielman, Ashley Beesemer (Tax), Jolize Lautenbach, Stephan Sluiter, Keri van Ettekoven (Public law & Regulatory), Jeroen Boelens, Michelle Slimmen (IP), Jaco Belder, Martijn Vreuls (Finance), David Wumkes, Redmar Warning (Real Estate Notarial) and Ramon Pop (Lease).
