Weiss+Appetito Holding AG has restructured its shareholder capital structure

Weiss+Appetito Holding AG has restructured its shareholder capital structure.

Weiss+Appetito has been active in the market segments of building industry and building industry services since 1923. The company's main business activities are building reconstructions, covering with greenery, floors+flooring and suction+pressure blowing. These activities are grouped in a holding which is listed on the Berne Exchange.

The holding had a particular capital structure which grew over time and was considered by the Board of Directors not to be in line with current expectations by shareholders. In addition, the traded stocks were relatively heavy and the Board of Directors wished a higher liquidity of the shares.

Oaklins' team in Switzerland advised the Board of Directors on the successful restructuring of its equity capital by converting parts of the equity capital (profit-participation certificates) into share capital, by splitting the share capital, and by reducing a part of the nominal value of the share capital.
