AS “Latvijas Gāze” management buy-out team mobilises financing for the next step.

The special purpose vehicle “Energy Investments” SIA, founded by AS “Latvijas Gāze” board members, continues the management buy-out (MBO) process whereby it is planned to acquire AS “Latvijas Gāze” shares from the issuer’s major shareholders.

As part of the process, an agreement has been reached with the current financier AS “Rietumu Banka” on the next steps.

In order to raise funds for further stages of share acquisition, “Energy Investments” SIA has, as part of financing the MBO project, sold the issuer’s shares (~29%) purchased in the first stage of management buy-out to Rietumu Banka as financier, with a right to repurchase. The financial instrument sale contract envisages buy-back conditions for a 3-year period. Such financing model is widespread across the major finance and energy markets of the European Union. During the said period, Rietumu Banka will be an investor and a full-fledged shareholder of AS “Latvijas Gāze”.

Chairman of the board of “Energy Investments” SIA Aigars Kalvītis says:

“We are pleased to have the opportunity to continue towards the ambitious goals of the MBO process. The agreement reached with AS “Rietumu Banka” will enable the MBO team to buy out AS “Latvijas Gāze” shares from the current major shareholders in a relatively short time frame and make the company an energy market flagship controlled by domestic capital. Furthermore, we are confident of buying back the shares from the financier in less than 3 years.”

On behalf of AS “Latvijas Gāze” and “Energy Investments” SIA

Aigars Kalvītis, Chairman of the Board.
