Schroder Investment Management (Switzerland) AG, Zurich, as fund management company (the «Fund Management Company») of Schroder ImmoPLUS (hereinafter «SRIP» or «Fund»), today announces the successful conclusion of the capital increase for the SRIP fund. Investors subscribed to new units with a total value of CHF 103 million. The capital increase was structured on a best effort basis within the framework of a public rights issue. Based on 14 existent fund units, holders were entitled to subscribe for one new unit at the subscription / issue price of CHF 144.

In total, all 712,012 new units were subscribed. 99.3% of the rights were exercised and the remaining units were placed with existing investors. Following the capital increase, a total of 10,680,193 units are now in circulation.

He says, "We would like to thank our existing and new investors for their trust and continued support. We are extremely pleased with the very positive market reception." Some of the proceeds from the capital increase will be used to refinance the acquisition in 2021 of two office buildings (summarised into one property, in the annual report as at 30 September 2021) for around CHF 70 million by repaying the short-term debt capital raised for this purpose. The remaining proceeds will be used to invest in portfolio projects and to further reduce short-term debt.
