Quantum Pacific Group, an international group of businesses that includes significant interests in various industries globally, including shipping, energy, natural resources, medical technology and automotive, whose principal is Mr. Idan Ofer, has agreed to take a stake in Club Atlético de Madrid's share capital. The operation will be implemented through a capital increase and because Quantum Pacific Group is investing via a new share issue, all of the money will go to the club for its development, which will ultimately benefit all current shareholders.
Quantum Pacific Group’s entrance in the share capital will allow the club to reinforce its own funds in a significant way. At the same time, it will also help in the expansion of the Atlético de Madrid brand, which will bring beneficial consequences to the club in the coming years, as well as helping maintain the team’s competitive level.
After the corresponding negotiations and screening process, Quantum Pacific Group has committed to invest in a number of shares that represent an investment of 50 million euros. The club’s Board of Directors has made a decision to immediately propose in its annual meeting to increase Club Atlético de Madrid’s share capital by 15 percent to enable this investment.
The aforementioned capital increase, in which minority shareholders may exercise their right of preferential acquisition, if they wish to do so, will be completed at a rate of 78 euros for each new share, of which 8.5 euros will be at par value and 69.5 per share premium.
