Launch of accelerated book built offering to allow Partners Group's
co-founders to significantly increase investments alongside clients and expand
the free float of shares in Partners Group
Partners Group, the global private markets manager, announced on Monday, 5
November 2012 that its founding partners, Dr. Marcel Erni, Alfred Gantner and
Urs Wietlisbach, intend to significantly increase their personal investments
The founding partners will offer up to approximately 3.18 million secondary
shares in an accelerated book built offering with initial price guidance of
CHF 180-185 per share. In order to support an orderly aftermarket trading, the
founding partners have granted an option for the purchase of approximately an
additional 0.17 million shares to cover over-allotments, if any. The final
amount of the offering will be determined following the bookbuilding process.
A minimum of CHF 300 million of any proceeds from the placement would be
invested in programs with direct investment content alongside clients.
Assuming all of the shares are sold in the offering and the full exercise of
the over-allotment option, the founding partners will each retain in excess of
10% of Partners Group's total share capital.
The books are now open. In connection with the offering, the founding partners
have agreed not to sell any further shares until 1 January 2014, subject to
