Today, on May 22, the offer period of Latvian fintech company AS DelfinGroup shares started on Nasdaq Riga stock exchange. The subscription period will last until June 2 (15:30 Riga time). During the public offerings of shares, investors from Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia will be able to purchase up to 4.66 million DelfinGroup shares. These shares are offered by the two largest shareholders of the company – SIA L24 Finance and SIA EC finance. The offer price per share is 1.35 euros.

The Bank of Latvia approved both prospectuses of the public offerings of shares on May 17. As part of the public offerings, L24 Finance offers up to 3.15 million shares, and EC finance – up to 1.51 million shares, which in total is 10.3% of all DelfinGroup shares. The announcement of the results of the public offerings is scheduled for June 5, while the transfer and settlement of the purchased shares is planned for June 6. Offer shares will be allocated proportionately (pro-rata) to the purchase undertakings received during the offer period.

The closing share price of DelfinGroup shares on the stock exchange on the day of approval of the prospectuses was 1.515 euros. However, the volume weighted average share price from February 1, 2023, until April 30, 2023, was 1.51 euros. Therefore, the shares will be offered with more than a 10% discount from the volume weighted average share price in the previously mentioned trading period.

"The plan of the two largest shareholders of DelfinGroup to sell part of their shares can be seen as a positive step, contributing both to the increase in the number of shares in free float and generally having a positive effect on the development of the capital market both in Latvia and the Baltics. With the public offer of shares, the liquidity of shares and trading volumes on the stock exchange will increase, which is beneficial for both existing and new investors and the stock exchange as a whole. Furthermore, investors have the opportunity to purchase shares at a fixed price below their current market value, diversifying their investment portfolios," explains Didzis Ādmīdiņš, Chairman of the Management Board of DelfinGroup.

Among the Latvian companies that are currently traded in the Main List of the Nasdaq Baltic exchange, in 2023 DelfinGroup is the leader in terms of share trading volume and market capitalization.

DelfinGroup has distributed up to 50% of the company's profits as dividends every quarter so far, and the company plans to continue this practice. Based on dividend payments made by the company until May 16, 2023, over the last 12 months, DelfinGroup has paid 5.5 million euros in dividends, or 0.121 euros per share. This provided shareholders with a dividend yield of 8%, based on the share price at the closing of the May 16, 2023, trading session on the Nasdaq Riga stock exchange. Taking into account the dividends paid over the last 12 months, at the offer price of 1.35 euros, the dividend yield would be 9%.

Based on information included in the offering prospectuses, the largest shareholders of DelfinGroup currently are L24 Finance (55.13%), EC finance (18.22%), and AE Consulting (8.75%), while other shareholders own 17.9% of the shares.

Detailed information about the public offerings of DelfinGroup shares is published on the website www.shareoffering.lv. LHV Bank is the Global Lead Manager and Bookrunner of the public offerings.

In the prospectuses prepared by the shareholders, it is stipulated that the managing bank of the public offerings (LHV Bank) may combine both offerings in one and place them on the Nasdaq stock exchange system as one transaction.
