Pursuant to the resolution dated 28.02.2017 of the Board of Directors of the company “ORGANIZATION OF FOOTBALL PROGNOSTICS S.A.” (the “Company” or “Issuer” or “Opap”), the following, among others, have been decided:
(a) issuance of a common bond loan by the Company (the «CBL»), of a total amount of up to €200,000,000, of a duration of five (5) years, divided into up to 200,000 dematerialized, common, bearer bonds, each of a nominal value of €1,000 (the “Bonds”), as well the approval of the CBL’s specific terms, which constitute the CBL’s programme (the “CBL Programme”), in accordance with the applicable provisions of law 3156/2003 (the “Issue”),
(b) that the Bonds will be offered for subscription by investors by way of a public offer (the “Public Offer”), with use of the electronic book-building service (“E.BB”) of Athens Exchange and will be admitted for trading in the category of Fixed Income Securities of the Regulated Market of the Athens Exchange (the “Athens Exchange”),
If the CBL is not subscribed for an amount of at least Euro One Hundred Million (€100,000,000), the Issue will be aborted and the amount corresponding to the value for subscription of each Private Investor will be released at the latest within two business days.
FIXING OF FINAL YIELD, INTEREST RATE AND OFFER PRICE OF THE BONDS
The determination of the price, the yield, and the interest rate of the Bonds, shall be made by way of the process of book building (the “Book Building”), which shall be kept by the Joint Coordinators and Bookrunners. The Book Building will be implemented by the process of E.BB. in which only Institutional Investors may participate.
The yield range which, has been set by the Joint Coordinators and Bookrunners, in accordance with par. 3 of article 3 of Decision 19/776/13.2.2017 of the Board of Directors of the Capital Markets Commission, and within which the Institutional Investors shall submit their subscription statements, is the following:
The Interest Rate may be equal to the final yield or to be lower by up to 25 base units. The Joint Coordinators and Bookrunners shall determine the Interest Rate and the Offer Price which constitute the final yield.
The criteria and the conditions upon which the final yield, the Interest Rate and the Offer Price will be determined include the conditions of the bond market, the volume of demand per yield by the Institutional Investors, the volume and type of Institutional Investors, the volume of demand by Private Investors to the extent that the final allocation to them will surpass the minimum allocation percentage of 30%, the cost that the issuer is willing to undertake in order to service the Issue.
Indicatively, if the demand by Institutional Investors covers the Issue up to the high end of the yield range and at the same time a material part of the Issue is subscribed at a lower level of yield, the lower level may be selected, even if that would result in a smaller number of capital raised and under the condition of satisfaction of the condition for issuance of the Bonds.
The final yield will be determined by the Joint Coordinators and Bookrunners within the announced yield range for the participants in the Book Building process.
The final yield, the Interest Rate and the Offer Price shall be notified to the Capital Markets Commission and shall be published, at the latest, the next business day following the end of the Public Offer.
Concurrently with the determination of the final yield, the final allocation of the offered Bonds will be decided. In any event, the Interest Rate and the Offer Price shall be determined within the announced yield range.
