SigmaRoc is an AIM-quoted buy-and-build group targeting construction materials assets in the UK and Northern Europe. It seeks to create value by purchasing assets in fragmented construction materials markets and extracting efficiencies through active management and by forming the assets into larger groups. In January 2017, SigmaRoc completed the reverse takeover of Ronez Limited, a construction materials business in the Channel Islands. Since then, the Company has successfully enacted its buy-and-build strategy, completing 10 further acquisitions across the UK and Belgium.
On 15 July 2021, the Company announced that it had conditionally agreed to acquire the entire issued capital of Nordkalk Oy Ab, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Rettig Group, for a total Consideration of €470 million (approximately £402 million). The consideration for the Acquisition will be satisfied by a combination of €270 million (approximately £231 million) from the proceeds of a placing with existing and new institutional investors, the drawdown of €150 million (approximately £128 million) under a new bank facility, and the issue of €50 million (approximately £43 million) consideration shares.
On 16 July 2021, the Company announced the successful completion of the Placing, raising £261.6 million at the placing price of 85 pence per share. At around the time the Company announced the Placing, PrimaryBid also announced a retail offering, which has raised an additional £1.6 million for general working capital purposes, the completion of which will be conditional on completion of the Acquisition.
The Acquisition constitutes a reverse takeover of the Company pursuant to Rule 14 of the AIM Rules for Companies’.
