Saxo Bank, the leading fintech specialist provider of multi-asset trading and investing, today announced that all the necessary regulatory approvals have been received to enable China’s Zhejiang Geely Holding Group Co. Ltd (Geely Holding Group) and Sampo plc of Finland (Sampo) to acquire shares in Saxo Bank A/S.
Following the approval and reflecting the new ownership structure of Saxo Bank, Daniel Donghui Li has been elected chairman and new members of the board have been appointed at an extraordinary general meeting that marked the successful closing of the transactions.
In October 2017, shareholders of the Saxo Bank Group (“Saxo”) announced an offer received from Geely Financials Denmark A/S, a subsidiary of Geely Holding Group, to acquire a majority stake in Saxo Bank. At the same time, Sampo, a leading Nordic financial services group, made an offer to acquire a 19.9 percent interest in the Bank.
The closing of the transactions means that TPG Capital, Lars Seier Christensen and SinarMas sell their interests in Saxo Bank amounting to 29.26 percent, 25.71 percent and 9.9 percent respectively. Some minority shareholders have also agreed to sell their shares to Geely Holding Group and Sampo resulting in stakes of 52 percent and 19.9 percent respectively. CEO and Founder Kim Fournais’ share of 25.71 percent of the Bank remains unchanged.
The transaction values Saxo Bank at EUR 1.325 bn.
In proportion to Saxo Bank’s international presence the process of closing the transactions has been subject to regulatory approvals from 11 different financial and competition authorities with Geely Holding Group and Sampo receiving approval to buy the shares from the Danish FSA earlier this year.
In due course, Saxo Bank and its new shareholders will announce potential new areas of cooperation and partnerships to enable the business to capitalize fully on its financial technology capabilities around the world.
