BR Properties (BRPR3) convenes a meeting: capital reduction and grouping on the agenda
BR Properties (BRPR3) announced after the close of market the day before that its board of directors approved the convening of an extraordinary general meeting, to be held on January 24, 2023, to resolve the reduction of the share capital by the amount amount of BRL 2,510,809,856.20, as deemed excessive, subject to return to shareholders, with a cash share for a total amount of BRL 1,276,000,000.00 and a share share of BRPR Corporate Offices Fundo de Investimento Imobiliário (FII ), for a total amount of BRL 1,234,809,856.20.
The grouping of all shares issued by the company in the ratio of 40 shares to 1 share will also be approved.
After the sales of the commercial towers in Brookfield, announced in mid-2022, followed by the amortization of debt issues at the time and the reduction of capital in the amount of R$ 1,125,000,000.00, the company began to analyze which it would have been the best use of funds deriving from the collection of the installment of the sale price of the properties involved in the transactions, as well as from the use of its residual portfolio of office towers.
BR Properties highlighted in a relevant fact this Tuesday that the local and foreign macroeconomic scenarios remain difficult and that it does not expect new short-term investments that could generate attractive returns. In this context, it has decided to propose the 2023 capital reduction to the shareholders, so that they can better monetize their invested capital, both in relation to the liquidity to be generated by receiving the forward portion of the operations in July 2023, and the remaining portfolio of commercial towers .
The company announced that it has signed a commitment term for the structuring of private securities issues with Banco BTG Pactual, through which BTG has guaranteed a loan line of R$ 1,330,000,000.00 for the advance of part of the installment due in July 2023 relating to the transactions, with the aim of allowing the company to use these resources from this advance in the 2023 capital reduction.
As regards the share in kind of the 2023 capital reduction, the company structured the FII with the aim of transferring the properties of its portfolio of commercial towers to this fund and of delivering the respective shares to the company’s shareholders.
The FII shares will be registered for trading on the B3 secondary market and, once admitted to trading, will be traded under the ticker BROF11.
If the 2023 capital reduction and reverse split are approved, shareholders will receive FII shares at a rate of one share for each share they hold, BR Properties explained.
The ratio of 1:1 was established considering that the reverse stock split to be approved at the ETA will be completed before the entry into force of the 2023 Capital Reduction and the delivery of the FII shares.
The proposed capital reduction for 2023, if approved, will enter into force only 60 days after the publication of the minutes of the Shareholders’ Meeting.
“The proposed reverse stock split aims to reduce the volatility of the company’s issued shares and provide a better level for the pricing of its shares considering the effectiveness of the capital reduction in 2023,” BR Properties said.
