São Paulo, July 31st, 2017
We are pleased to announce that Focal Capital acted as the exclusive financial advisor to Bahema Investimentos in a capital raising of R$ 30.5 million, through a public offering of 568.1 thousand "BAHI3" shares, under "limited efforts regime".
Transaction proceeds will be used to fund Bahema Investimentos’ expansion plan in basic education sector, either in the assets acquired until the present moment (Escola da Vila, Escola Parque and Balão Vermelho), or in new potential targets.
Bahema is a traditional Brazilian investment company, with a long history of success that spans over 35 years. Bahema Investimentos’ present team is young and led by the 3rd generation of the founding family.
Focal Capital assisted in building the investment thesis and in coordinating a roadshow with 35 selected investors, which, based on our knowledge of the market, could have interest in this thesis. After discussions with a limited number of finalists, the offer was mainly subscribed by a local investment fund, beside others coming from Bahema’s current investor base.
This transaction confirms Focal Capital’s ability to structure complex transactions, as Bahema is a publicly listed company, and confirms our unique knowledge of the investor community and, in particular, of the education sector, as this is our 3rd consecutive and successful transaction in Brazilian basic education vertical.
