08.02.2023 / 16:15 CET/CEST
The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.


THIS ANNOUNCEMENT AND THE INFORMATION CONTAINED HEREIN IS RESTRICTED AND IS NOT FOR RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, IN, INTO OR FROM THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, AUSTRALIA, CANADA, JAPAN OR ANY OTHER STATE OR JURISDICTION IN WHICH SUCH RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION WOULD BE UNLAWFUL.

 

LAUNCH OF PLACING OF UP TO 240 MILLION SHARES IN PEPKOR HOLDINGS LIMITED

 

Steinhoff International Holdings N.V. (“Steinhoff”, the “Company” and together with its subsidiaries, the “Group”) announces the launch of an accelerated bookbuild (the “Placing”) of up to 240 million ordinary shares of no par value in Pepkor Holdings Limited (“Pepkor”) (“Placing Shares”), representing approximately 6.5% of the current issued shares, subject to acceptable pricing being achieved.

 

Steinhoff, through an indirect wholly owned subsidiary, currently owns 51.0% of the issued shares in Pepkor. On successful conclusion of the Placing, and assuming Steinhoff places all of the Placing Shares, Steinhoff will retain ownership of approximately 44.5% of the issued shares in Pepkor. Assuming Steinhoff places all of the Placing Shares, the Placing will also increase the free float of Pepkor from approximately 49.0% to 55.5%.

 

Steinhoff continues to view Pepkor as a strategic investment for the Group and as such,  Steinhoff has agreed to a 90-day lock-up period, subject to customary exceptions and waiver by the Managers. Proceeds from the Placing will in due course be used to de-leverage Steinhoff’s capital structure.

 

As is customary in transactions of this nature, the Company reserves the right to increase the size of the Placing, subject to demand and pricing.

 

Information relating to the Placing

 

The Placing is offered to qualifying investors only (as set out in greater details in the disclaimer below) and does not and will not constitute, nor is it intended to constitute, an offer to the public to purchase any shares in any jurisdiction.

 

The Placing will be carried out by Investec Bank Limited and Morgan Stanley & Co. International plc (together, the "Managers") who are acting as managers in respect of the Placing, pursuant to the terms of the agreement entered into between the indirect wholly owned subsidiary of the Company which holds shares in Pepkor and the Managers.

 

The book will open with immediate effect and is expected to close as soon as possible, at the discretion of Steinhoff. Pricing and allocations will be announced as soon as practicable following the closing of the book.

 

Information relating to Pepkor

 

Information on Pepkor, including its annual results as at and for the year ended 30 September 2022 and investor presentation, can be found on its website https://www.pepkor.co.za/. It should be noted that Steinhoff bears no responsibility for any information included on Pepkor’s website.

 

The Company has a primary listing on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange and a secondary listing on the securities exchange operated by the JSE Limited.

The distribution of this Announcement and the offering for sale of the Placing Shares in certain jurisdictions may be restricted by law. The Placing Shares may not be offered to the public in any jurisdiction in circumstances which would require the preparation or registration of any prospectus or offering document relating to the shares in such jurisdiction.

The Placing Shares have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and may not be offered or sold, directly or indirectly, in the United States of America, absent registration or pursuant to an exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act and in compliance with applicable state and other securities laws. There will be no public offer of the Placing Shares in the United States of America or in any other jurisdiction.

 

Neither this Announcement nor the Placing constitutes or is intended to constitute an offer to the public in South Africa in terms of the South African Companies Act, 2008 (“the South African Companies Act"). In South Africa this Announcement is only directed at, and any investment or investment activity to which this Announcement relates is available only to, and will be engaged in only with, persons in South Africa who (i) fall within the categories of persons set out in section 96(1)(a) of the South African Companies Act or (ii) who are persons who subscribe, as principal, for Placing Shares at a minimum placing price of R1 000 000, as envisaged in section 96(1)(b) of the South African Companies Act.

 

In member states of the European Economic Area (“EEA”), this Announcement and any offer if made subsequently is directed exclusively at persons who are “qualified investors” within the meaning of the Prospectus Regulation. For these purposes, the expression “Prospectus Regulation” means Regulation (EU) 2017/1129.

 

In the United Kingdom this Announcement is only being distributed to, and is only directed at, and any investment or investment activity to which this Announcement relates is available only to, and will be engaged in only with, “qualified investors” within the meaning of the Prospectus Regulation as it forms part of UK domestic law by virtue of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (as amended) and who are (i) investment professionals falling within Article 19(5) of the UK Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Financial Promotion) Order 2005 (the “Order”); or (ii) high net worth entities falling within Article 49(2)(a) to (d) of the Order; or (iii) other persons to whom it may otherwise be lawfully communicated (all such persons together being referred to as “relevant persons”).

This Announcement has been issued by and is the sole responsibility of Steinhoff. No representation or warranty, express or implied, is or will be made as to, or in relation to, and no responsibility or liability is or will be accepted by either of the Managers or by any of their respective affiliates or any of its or their respective directors, employees, advisers or agents as to, or in relation to, the accuracy or completeness of this Announcement or any other written or oral information made available to or publicly available to any interested party or their advisers, and any liability therefore is expressly disclaimed.

 

This Announcement does not purport to identify or suggest the risks (direct or indirect) which may be associated with an investment in the Placing Shares. Any investment decision to acquire Placing Shares pursuant to the Placing must be made solely on the basis of publicly available information.

In connection with the sale of the Placing Shares, either of the Managers and any of their respective affiliates acting as an investor for their own account may acquire a portion of the Placing Shares as a principal position and in that capacity may retain, purchase or sell for their own account such Placing Shares. In addition they may enter into financing arrangements and swaps with investors in connection with which they may from time to time acquire, hold or dispose of Placing Shares. They do not intend to disclose the extent of any such investment or transactions otherwise than in accordance with any legal or regulatory obligation to do so.
