In the context of a broader commercial partnership project between Banco di Desio e della Brianza (“Banco Desio”, or the “Bank”) and Anthilia Capital Partners SGR S.p.A. (“Anthilia”, or the “SGR”) pertaining to services to SMEs and to the asset and wealth management area, an Investment Agreement was entered into between Banco Desio, Anthilia and its parent company, Anthilia Holding S.r.l., on 4 November 2021, concerning the entry of Banco Desio into the share capital of Anthilia.

The Investment Agreement provides, inter alia, for the subscription of a capital increase of approximately 4.6 million Euro reserved to Banco Desio, for 15% of the share capital of the SGR, subject to the authorisation process by the regulatory authorities.

At the same time, Anthilia will issue warrants in favour of Banco Desio, the conversion of which will be subject to the achievement of certain commercial objectives by 2024. If it elects to exercise the warrants, the Bank could reach 30% of the SGR’s capital.
