By Andrea Figueras

Italian distiller, Davide Campari-Milano, has successfully raised €1.2 billion ($1.31 billion) through a discounted share offering and convertible bonds. The funds will be used to support Campari’s planned acquisition of the owner of Courvoisier cognac and strengthen its financial position.

Share Offering

The shares were priced at €9.33 each, compared to Campari’s closing share price of €9.93 on Tuesday, resulting in a total of €650 million raised through this offering. The new shares represent 5.6% of Campari’s issued and outstanding ordinary share capital and offer the same rights as existing ordinary shares, including dividend rights.

Convertible Bonds

Additionally, Campari will raise €550 million through the issuance of convertible bonds. These bonds have a maturity period of five years, providing an alternative source of financing for the company.

Acquisition Plans

In December, Davide Campari-Milano announced its exclusive negotiations with Beam Suntory for the acquisition of Beam Holding France, the owner of Courvoisier cognac. The acquisition is valued at up to $1.32 billion and is seen as a strategic move to expand Campari’s portfolio.
