Czerwona Torebka Developer Surges on Bourse Debut: Warsaw Mover

Dec. 28 (Bloomberg) -- Czerwona Torebka SA, the shopping center developer owned by Polish investor Mariusz Switalski, surged on its first day of trading in Warsaw.

The shares advanced 66 percent to 11.64 zloty at the close in Warsaw, valuing the Poznan, Poland-based developer at 602 million zloty ($195 million). The WIG20 index of the country’s largest and most liquid stocks fell 0.7 percent, paring this year’s gain to 20 percent, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

The company sold 2.69 million shares at 7 zloty each this month, raising 18.8 million zloty in an initial public offering. It had planned to offer as much as 16.3 million new shares while the maximum price was set at 17.2 zloty per share. It’s the nineteenth company that debuted on the Warsaw bourse’s main market this year, according to stock exchange data.

Czerwona Torebka, which runs 24 shopping centers and is preparing to open another 59 outlets, plans to invest 4.5 billion zloty to expand its nationwide network to more than 1,880 strip malls by 2021. Switalski earlier founded Eurocash SA, now the country’s biggest distributor of non-durable consumer goods, as well as Biedronka and Zabka retail chains before selling them to foreign investors.

The company sees its 2013 profit rising to 166.7 million zloty from 29.1 million zloty expected this year, it said in a prospectus. Poland’s economic growth rate, although the slowest in three years, will still be the fifth-fastest in the 27-country European Union this year, according to European Commission forecasts

Bank Zachodni WBK SA and Trigon brokerages managed Czerwona Torebka’s share sale.
