Cegereal - Entry of new shareholders and REIT status maintained
Northwood, which held 98.44% of Cegereal’s share capital following the tender offer that closed on January 25, 2016, has sold a portion of its CGR shares, representing 40.96% of Cegereal’s capital, in a financing round with leading institutional investors, including GIC, which took up 25%. The Northwood concert now only holds 57.48% of Cegereal.
The maintenance of REIT (Real Estate Investment Trust) status is conditional on a single shareholder or several shareholders acting in concert – within the meaning of Article L.223-10 of the French Commercial Code – not holding, directly or indirectly, more than 60% of the company’s share capital, as per Article 208C of the French General Tax Code.
This transaction allows Cegereal to continue to benefit from the REIT tax regime.
