TOUAX

Touax launches a capital increase without preferential subscription rights with a priority subscription period for an initial amount of €9.74 million, at a subscription ratio of 1 new share for 6 existing shares and for a subscription price of €9.93 per new share

THIS PRESS RELEASE MAY NOT BE PUBLISHED, FORWARDED OR DISTRIBUTED, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, IN THE UNITED STATES, CANADA, AUSTRALIA OR JAPAN

TOUAX S.C.A. (the "Company" or "Touax") announces today the launch of a capital increase without subscription rights with a priority subscription period for an initial amount of €9.74 million. Such amount may be increased by a maximum of 15% of the initial amount (i.e. a total amount of €11.2 million after the exercise in full of the increase option) (the "Capital Increase").

The result of the Capital Increase is intended to provide the Touax Group with additional resources for its general financing needs, limit its liquidity risk and provide the Group with more flexibility required for the financing and development of its activity. As such, the net proceeds from the Capital Increase will be applied to reimburse part of the Group's revolving credit facilities, which will remain available to finance the Group's working capital and general financing needs.

The Capital Increase was the subject of a commitment to subscribe up to 75.15% of the total amount by:

-           Société Holding de Gestion et de Location (represented by Mr. Raphaël Walewski) has agreed to subscribe as part of the Capital Increase a total of 25,176 new shares of the Company for an amount of €250,000, amounting to 2.57% of the Capital Increase without exercise of the increase option;

-           Société Holding de Gestion et de Participation (represented by Mr. Fabrice Walewski) has agreed to subscribe as part of the Capital Increase a total of 100,704 new shares of the Company for an amount of €1,000,000, amounting to 10.27% of the Capital Increase without exercise of the increase option;

-           Argos has agreed to subscribe, as part of the Capital Increase, a total of 77,542 new shares of the Company, during the priority subscription period, for a consideration of €770,000, amounting to 7.91% of the Capital Increase without exercise of the increase option;

-           Certain investors, some holding less than 5% of the capital and voting rights of the Company as of the date of the Prospectus, have irrevocably agreed to subscribe as part of the Capital Increase, during the priority subscription period, a total of 533,538 new shares of the Company for an aggregate consideration of €5,298,058, amounting to 54.4% of the Capital Increase without exercise of the increase option;

-           Mr. Alexandre Walewski announced his intention to acquire a number of shares, through off-market transactions, during the priority subscription period of the Capital Increase, in order to maintain the Majority Group's ownership (consisting of Mr. Alexandre Walewski, Société Holding de Gestion et de Location and Société Holding de Gestion et de Participation, the "Majority Group") at its current level. Mr. Alexandre Walewski announced that these off-market transactions would be executed at the same price as the Capital Increase, and the settlement and delivery of these off-market transactions will take place the same day as the settlement and delivery of the shares issued by the Capital Increase.

The Group is currently carrying out a strategic analysis to optimize its capital allocation and is conducting a review of its portfolio of assets and activities. These reviews may lead to the disposal or sale of certain assets, some of which may be material (equipment or sectors), on a short- or medium-term basis.

The Capital Increase is led by Gilbert Dupont, acting as Manager and Book runner.

MAIN TERMS OF THE CAPITAL INCREASE

The subscription price is €9.93 per share (with a nominal value of €8 per share and an issue premium of €1.93 per share, based on a subscription ratio of 1 new share for 6 existing shares, resulting in the issuance of 980,636 new shares and a maximum of 11,198,369 new shares in case of the exercise in full of the 15% increase option).

The subscription price represents a discount of 5% of Touax's weighted-average closing share price for the three trading days prior to July 19, 2016.

Each shareholder of Touax shall be entitled to a priority subscription period for each share held as of the end of the July 20, 2016 trading day, for a period of time running simultaneously with the subscription period, i.e., from July 20, 2016 to July 22, 2016 included. The priority subscription right is neither assignable, nor tradable.

The offer will be open to the public in France only in addition to an international placement to institutional investors.

The subscriptions received through the public offering in France and during the priority subscription period will be received by CM-CIC Market Solutions. The subscriptions received through the international placement to institutional investors will be received by Gilbert Dupont.

Any shares not subscribed through irrevocable entitlement will be distributed and allocated to the holders having submitted additional subscription orders subject to reduction. The subscription orders subject to reduction will be satisfied within the limit of and proportionally to the demand, provided that fractions of new shares may not be allocated.

During the public offering, i.e., from July 20, 2016 to July 22, 2016, any person will be able to subscribe new shares of the Company.

The settlement and delivery of the new shares is expected to take place on July 28, 2016.

The new shares will be immediately fungible with existing shares of Touax and will carry full dividend rights from their issuance and for all future dividends decided by Touax as from this date.

The new shares will be listed and traded on the regulated market of Euronext Paris from July 28, 2016 on the same listing as the existing shares under ISIN code FR0000033003.

The Group manages its own equipment as well as equipment for third-party investors).

 

The Group's shipping container business includes leasing and hire-purchase, third-party asset management, and the sale of new and used containers. The Group's modular building business manufactures modular buildings, leases or sells them and provides a certain number of services for customers, including assembly and facility management in particular.

The Group's freight railcar business includes leasing and hire-purchase, third-party asset management, and the sale of new and used railcars.
B.4.a Recent trends affecting the Group and its industry Revenue for Q1 2016
The consolidated revenue for the 1st quarter of 2016 amounted to €87.7 million compared with €68.2 million for the 1st quarter of 2015, up by 28.5% (+27.4% with equivalent exchange rates and scope). This increase is mainly due to a recovery of the syndication in the Shipping Container activity and an increasing volume of sales in the Modular Buildings and Shipping Containers divisions.



  • Increase of the revenue of sales of equipment
The revenue of sales of equipment increased by 167.6%, mainly due to a recovery of the syndication of investors containers at the beginning of the year and an increasing volume of sales of containers and modules to our clients (+91.7%). The revenue of sales amounted to €34.4 million.



  • Increase of the revenue of the Shipping Container division
The revenue of the Shipping Container division amounted to €43.3 million for the 1st quarter of 2016 compared with €32.2 million for the 1st quarter of 2015, up by 28.5%, up by 34% (+31.6% with equivalent dollar rates). This increase is mainly due to a higher volume of sales of used containers to our clients and to syndications. TOUAX achieved a sale and leaseback transaction during the 1st quarter of 2016, for a volume that was higher than all syndication transactions achieved during 2015, but for which the commission only is recorded as revenue. Leasing activities slightly decreased to €23.8 million mainly due to deflationary market conditions. It should be noted that the price of steel and the price of new containers in China have increased since March 2016, that will result in a positive effect on leasing rates.



  • Increase of the revenue of the Modular Building division
The revenue of the Modular Building division increased by 27.6% to €31.2 million compared to the 1st quarter of 2015. The revenue of leasing activities remains stable at €17.5 million. Equipment sales increase by 99% and amounts to €13.8 million, confirming the activity's recovery.



  • Increase of the revenue of the Freight Railcars division
The revenue of the Freight Railcars division increased by 18.3% to €9.3 million. This increase is mainly due to the management of a complementary fleet of railcars during the last quarter of 2015.



  • New bank financings
As of the date of the visa on the Prospectus, the Company obtained from the credit committees of its banks the approval to provide the Company with a non-depreciable term loan due May 31, 2017 for a total of €16.0 million, which proceeds will be used for the Group's general financing needs.


The Group obtained from the credit committee the approval for a €6.0 million bilateral loan backed by assets held by its subsidiary Touax Rail Finance, which proceed will be used for the Group's general financing needs.


The approvals of the credit committees are subject to several conditions, including the completion of a full set of documentation. As of the date of this Prospectus, these credit facilities are expected to be made available at the end of July 2016.



  • Current strategic analysis
The Group is currently carrying out a strategic analysis to optimize its capital allocation and is conducting a review of its portfolio of assets and activities. These reviews may lead to the disposal or sale of certain assets, some of which may be material (equipment or sectors), on a short- or medium-term basis.

B.9 Profit forecasts or estimates Assumptions


Operating income forecasts depend mostly on assumptions of asset utilization rates and the associated expenses as well as on sales level and margin rates. These assumptions are based on the Group's management and reporting tool for available past trends and estimated projections.


The assumptions are as follows:

  • For the Shipping Container activity, we think that the utilization rates will increase and that operational expenses will decrease accordingly. An increase in the utilization rates would lead to a lower shipping container return rate compared to 2015 and to contract extensions. It would also lead to high volume of used container sales as in 2015. We also believe to achieve higher volume of syndications due to attractive steel prices, but with conservative margins.
     
  • For the Modular Building activity, we anticipate limited investment to support the recovery of the activity in Germany, Poland, and France. We think that the recovery of the activity will lead to an increase in both utilization rates and leasing rates. In Germany, the increased activity would be due to a large market for emergency housing for refugees. In Poland the increased activity would be due construction and infrastructure markets that remain brisk. In France, the increased activity would be due to an adjustment related to a policy of targeted assets sales. We also think that we will have more sales generated by emergency housing for refugees. No non-recurring event is expected for this year.
     
  • For the Freight Railcars activity, we think that the utilization rates will continue to increase due to a better visibility for European economic growth. We plan to be able to reach higher volume of syndication after creating a dedicated investment vehicle that will allow wider sales margins than in 2015. Finally, the new equipment we took under management in 2015 should have a positive effect on the activity's margins due to economies of scale.
     
  • For the River Barge activity, we are expecting stable activity without significant developments as well as sales opportunities that will allow us to reach larger sales margins.
 

Forecasts
This Item B.9 contains forecasts for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016.


The forecasts listed below are not historical data and should not be interpreted as guarantees that the facts and data occur or will occur, or that the estimates have been met or will be met. This information is based on data, assumptions, and estimates that the Group considers reasonable. They are likely to change or be modified due to uncertainties arising mainly from the economic, financial, competitive, regulatory, or tax situation or due to other factors unknown to the Group as of the date of visa on this Prospectus. These forecasts may not occur and the assumptions on which they are based may prove to be false. Therefore, the Group accepts no liability for the forecasts listed in this section, and does not guarantee that they will occur. Investors are invited to consider the fact that one or all of the risks listed in section D of this Prospectus and described in chapter 4 of the Registration Document may have a material adverse effect on forecasts or estimates of Group profits.


We expect that the operating income of the Group will be positive in 2016.


This forecast is based on external factors such as both a sustained global growth and a sustained growth of international trade, as well as friendly monetary policy in advanced countries such as is described in chapter 12 of the Registration Document. Besides these external factors, there are also internal factors such as the worldwide geographic diversification of our transportation activities and our international growth, especially in Africa and Asia. We also notice that a recovery of the activity in Europe took place in 2015 for our Modular Buildings and Freight Railcars divisions.


These forecasts were made under the Managing Partners responsibility, using a process based on data and calculations from the budget management system. There were based on assets fleets (managed for third party or for our own account), forecasts on utilization rates, leasing rates, operating expenses and the associated distribution to investors, and on estimated sales volumes, sales margins, and overhead costs.


This forecast does not come from the consolidated financial statements, and it has not been approved by a decision of the Managing Partners, nor has it been audited or been subject to a limited review by the statutory auditors. The accounts information used for this forecast is compliant with the accounting rules and principles used for the 2015 consolidated financial statements.
B.10 Qualifications in the audit reports on the historical financial information Not applicable.
B.11 Net working capital The Group believes that as of the visa date of this Prospectus, it does not have sufficient consolidated working capital to honour all of the current obligations it will face over the next twelve months. The Group estimates that as of 31 July 2016, it will face a consolidated net working capital shortfall of €2.5 million.


As of this Prospectus' visa date, the Company has obtained the approval of its banking pool's credit committees to provide the Company with a non-depreciable term loan due on 31 May 2017 for a total of €16.0 million, which proceeds will be used for the Group's general needs.


Furthermore, the Group received the credit committee's approval for a €6.0 million bilateral loan backed by assets held by its subsidiary Touax Rail Finance, which proceeds will be used for the Group's general needs.


These committee approvals came with a certain number of conditions, notably including the satisfactory completion of a full set of documentation. As of this Prospectus' visa date, these loans proceeds are expected to be made available at the end of July 2016. The Company has a high degree of trust in the forthcoming signature of these bank facilities.


After these hereabove mentioned loans have been made available, the Group believes that it will have sufficient consolidated net working capital to honour its obligations over the next twelve months.
