Bremer Kreditbank’s €300 million capital increase


Bremer Kreditbank (BKB) has successfully completed a capital increase with an issue volume of EUR 300 million.

The Annual General Meeting of BKB had already approved the capital increase on 24 May 2017.

The capital increase was implemented to finance the acquisition of 90.2 percent of the shares in Oldenburgische Landesbank (OLB). In June 2017, BKB acquired OLB, one of the largest regional banks in the country. The seller was Allianz Deutschland AG. At the same time, BKB had submitted a takeover bid to the shareholders of OLB.

Clifford Chance advised BKB on this transaction with a team led by corporate law specialists Christian Vogel (partner) and Thomas Krecek (partner, in picture) as well as Maria Luisa Köhler (associate) and Moritz Petersen (associate).
