Steinhoff International Plans Listing Of Its African Assets

Steinhoff International Holdings N.V. (JSE:SNH) plans to list its African assets separately. Steinhoff International Holdings said that it will seek to list businesses together including Pepkor Holdings (Proprietary) Limited, Unitrans Automotive, Steinbuild, Poco South Africa, Tekkie Town (Pty) Ltd. and JD Group Limited on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange, about 18 months after moving its primary listing to Frankfurt from the South African commercial hub. Steinhoff said it will retain a controlling interest in the new company. The move will include a capital raising to achieve the appropriate level of public ownership, it said. The spun off value is estimated from ZAR 40 billion to ZAR 60 billion. Steinhoff appointed Citigroup Global Markets Limited, Investec Bank Limited, Morgan Stanley & Co International Plc and Rand Merchant Bank to advise on the proposed listing. PSG Capital (Pty) Ltd acted as sponsor and Cliffe Dekker Hofmeyr Incorporated, Linklaters LLP and Girard Hayward Inc acted as legal advisors for Steinhoff International.
