Saxo Bank goes public

On Thursday, a Denmark-headquartered investment platform Saxo Bank announced its intentions to go public in a business combination with a blank-check company Disruptive Capital Acquisition Company Limited (DCAC).

Saxo Bank’s SPAC partner, DCAC, is listed on Euronext Amsterdam since last October. If the deal is materialised, the Saxo Bank shares will be distributed to DCAC shareholders with the subsequent delisting and liquidation of DCAC, putting Saxo Bank on the Euronext Amsterdam listing.

The blank-check company is now seeking approval from its investors and shareholders on the offer.

Saxo Bank is well-capitalised, hence there will be no primary issue of shares, but rather a secondary sale of the shares.

The broker has detailed that the main purpose of the potential listing is to diversify its shareholders’ base resulting in an increased company profile to accelerate future growth strategy.

“We have a strong ownership, which we hope to strengthen and diversify even further, with full confidence that Saxo Bank is heading in the right strategic direction,” said Kim Fournais, the Founder and CEO of Saxo Bank.

Saxo Bank’s current shareholders, Geely Financials Denmark and Sampo Plc are intending to liquidate a limited proportion of their holdings. While some board members of Saxo Bank and some senior management, including CEO Kim Fournais, are planning to raise their stake in the company.

The potential transaction values the shares of Saxo Bank at a pro forma aggregate amount of at least €2 billion.
