PJSC Softline announced changes in the structure of share capital - a 4.2% stake in the IT supplier was received by a “large institutional investor”, whose name was not disclosed. This is stated in message companies.
The material states that the largest shareholder of the company, Atalaya LLC, transferred its share of shares to the new investor - as of October 17, 2023, it owned 82.1% of the shares. The acquirer of the 4.2% share was a company focused on “growth equity” investments, Softline clarified.
“Such changes in the structure of the company’s share capital create additional opportunities in terms of control over the corporate management of Softline and taking into account the interests of minority investors, whose share after the transaction has increased significantly,” said Softline CEO Vladimir Lavrov.
In October 2022, Softline officially completed the process of dividing its business into Russian and international. In April 2023, the Russian structure of the company completely came under the control of the closed mutual fund Tethys Capital.
