Institutional IPO (1997):

The IPO was made through a listing in the stock market directed only to institutional investors, both domestic and foreign, plus a tranche for employees, which together oversubscribed the offer almost ten times. SEPPa established the price of the share in 19.65 euros.

Tabacalera increased its participation up to 30 per cent, and the deal generated a gross income of 270.45 million euros. The green-shoe option of the insurers syndicate was exercised only in part, so a part of the capital remained in the hands of SEPPa.

Process followed for the sale of Aldeasa´s shares (2005):

In 2005 three initial public offering bids were submitted for the acquisition of Aldeasa’s shares. In the end, SEPI, which owned 1,063,636 shares (5.06%), accepted the last one, submitted by Retail Airport Finance, dated on March 21st, 2005.The deal was approved by Spain´s Securities Exchange Commission (CNMV), on March 23rd, 2005, and its price amounted to 36.57 Euros per share.

The decision taken by the Board of Directors of going to the IPO meant for SEPI a gross income of about 39 Million Euros. As a result of this deal, SEPI sold all its participation in Aldeasa. The Initial Public Offering on the totality of Aldeasa´s social capital (21,000,000 shares) ended successfully, on Monday April 18th, 2005. As was envisaged in the IPO´s brochure, Retail Airport Finance became the holder of 95.89% of the social capital of Aldeasa, which means 20,136,655 shares, thanks to the above mentioned IPO and to the transaction carried out by Altadis, which transferred to Retail Airport Finance the totality of the stake which it had in Aldeasa (7,262,336 shares) and, at the same time, it acquired in Retail a 50% participation.
