Milbank acted as counsel to Ambrosia Capital as sole bookrunner of the share capital increase and public offering by PREMIA Properties, in connection with a domestic offering and an international private placement. The share capital increase of €75 million, covered partly by in-kind contributions and partly in cash, and the issuance of a total of 52,083,331 new shares at an offer price of €1.44 per new share, was completed with great success. Specifically, €27.5 million were covered by contributions in-kind. The remaining new shares amounting to €47.5 million were offered to qualified and private investors in cash at a public offering in Greece and a private placement in Greece and abroad. The cash portion of the combined offer was oversubscribed by 1.36 times.
