In addition, the selling shareholders will receive gross proceeds of £46.5 million pursuant to the placing. At admission, the company will have 100,000,000 Ordinary Shares in issue with a free float of 48.4%. Following the placing, Luke Johnson, the largest shareholder, will own 42.7% of the company. The remaining directors and members of senior management will own 5.9% of the company. Conditional dealings will commence in the Ordinary Shares on the London Stock Exchange at 8.00 am today (14 May) under the ticker “CAKE”. Admission and the commencement of unconditional dealings in the Ordinary Shares are expected to take place at 8.00 am on 19 May. Luke Johnson, executive chairman of Patisserie Holdings, said: “Today’s announcement marks a key step in the development of the group. We have grown the business from eight stores to 138 today, and I’m delighted that our new investors have recognised the potential to roll out Patisserie Valerie further. We look forward to a strong future as a quoted company.” The group operates 138 stores and the Flour Power City Bakery in the UK.
